Wilson Bank & Trust
At Jack Anderson, we are so excited to add SPACE to our building as a resource to all students. The purpose of SPACE is to help students have success in the following areas:
We want to ensure that students have the tools to be successful, to persevere through challenges, and to communicate their needs effectively. While we strive for academic excellence, we are aware that meeting the needs of K-5 students in the area of social and emotional learning, is just as important. If and when a student feels that he or she may need a break, they can ask to go to SPACE. SPACE is an actual room inside JAE where a classified staff member, Coach Amy will spend her day. She is extremely knowledgeable in helping students "reset" and breathe. SPACE is not a place where students go as a consequence, nor is it a place where students go if they are in an escalated state. Students will always return back to class to learn after they spend time in SPACE, and will use the skills they learn at Jack Anderson, and in the future.

We have been notified by our new vendor TITAN Family Portal that they have had technical issues establishing our account to receive online payments from parents.
While they are addressing this issue, our MyPaymentsPlus system will remain available for parents to load student lunch payments online. All payments into MyPaymentsPlus will be automatically transferred into your student’s TITAN Family Portal account within 48 hours.
Parents may also load funds into their student’s lunch account by sending a check or cash to their school cafeteria with their students name and id number.
If your student is new to the district and you do not have a MyPaymentsPlus account, please contact your school cafeteria manager. Jennifer.email@example.com.
Our Titan system should be available for online payments at the end of August. We will send further communication to parents at that time.
Money that was deposited in your child’s account for extras last year should transfer after you register in the TITAN program. Please email Jennifer Osborne in the cafeteria with questions at Jennifer.firstname.lastname@example.org.
