As winter truly sets in it is important that our students are dressed appropriately for the weather. We will have outdoor recess if the temperature and/or windchill is above 32 degrees; coats and long pants are recommended. In the morning, students may enter the building at 7:25 AM. Please do not arrive or drop off prior to this time.

Clothing Donations Needed

Our Health Clinic stocks clothing for emergency needs like spilled milk, nose bleeds, or restroom accidents. These items help students get back to class quickly as well as preventing parents from leaving work to bring dry/clean clothing. We are in need of the following items:


  • Gently used shirts and pants (sweatpants or elastic waist pants are best)
  • New children's underwear and socks

Thank you for your help in meeting the needs of our students.

ROTARY READING INCENTIVE - WEEKLY DRAWING FOR $10 GIFT CARD

The Rotary Clubs of Norman are supporting reading at Jackson Elementary by offering weekly incentives and rewarding growth on FAST assessments.


Weekly Drawing - reading incentives

  • When a child reads a book (independently 2nd- 5th or read aloud PK - 1st), they will fill out a slip w/ their name, teacher, title of book and put it in a box in the library. You may get the slips from your child's teacher.

  • The students will put the slip in the designated box in the library.

  • Every Friday, a drawing will be held and one boy and one girl will receive a $10 gift card to Wal-Mart.

Bike Give-a-way

  • Based on reading growth, measured through FAST progress monitoring and benchmark assessments, every student showing growth will be entered in a drawing to win a bicycle .

  • One boy bike and one girl bike will be given at the end of this semester.
