Principal's Message

Dear Jackson Families,

We are geared up for an excellent and strong end to the school year! The learning happening daily around the school is AMAZING - students are working hard, collaborating, and taking risks with their thinking and discourse!  Remember the last day of school will be June 23.

We are raising money for new playground elements and you can help!  The students have all been given a design packet so they can help influence what the new playground elements look like and how the space is organized.  Go to the playground page to learn more!

If you are not getting the monthly newsletters via email, please email me so that I can get you on the list serve right away.

There are many ways to be "in the know" about Jackson activities - click HERE to learn more. Jackson is proud to have a life skills classroom. If you want to know more about inclusion and our work with students, please read this letter.  


Sarah Crane, Ed.D.
