YEARBOOKS

YEARBOOKS HAVE ARRIVED! If you ordered a yearbook, it should have come home this weekend in your child's backpack. If you did not purchase a yearbook but would like to do so, we have a limited supply of extra yearbooks for purchase. Hurry before they are all gone!


To order a yearbook, please click on our online school store link. They will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis for $55 each (if check or cash payment is preferred, please email Emily Fournier at emilywfournier@gmail.com).

VIDEO ORDERS

Order forms for the 5th Grade Video - JACKSON “THROUGH THE YEARS” - were sent home last week in Tuesday folders. A professional video with photos highlighting the students' years at Jackson will be shown during the end-of-year events planned for our 5th graders. This video is available for purchase, along with a video of the 5th grade musical, The Little Mermaid.


These videos are available for $20 each or $30 for both.


We will be mailing completed copies out in June with bonus footage that includes the special end-of-year events that occur during the month of May. Please return your order form, payment and the enclosed self-addressed envelope by Friday, May 18th. You can pay by check, cash or online at the school store.
