We are still enrolling and registering students for the 2020-2021 school year. While we may not be able to connect face to face during this process our school and district staff is here to support you in the enrollment process. If you have any questions you can send Mrs. Lesar an email - susan.lesar@d11.org or you can click on the District 11 Enrollment Site https://www.d11.org/Enrollment . Students already enrolled at Jackson do not need to do anything to continue at Jackson next year.

From the Jackson Library with Mrs. Sobecki

This video shows all the activities that are available at Code.org I have used Code.org with classes and for the Coding and Robotic class. I recommend everyone log onto this great resource. The girls in the Coding and Robotics club were given the opportunity to order this free Tshirt that says Girls Code. Have a great week and send me an email at rhonda.sobecki@d11.org if you log into Code.org

Mrs. Thomas' Counseling Corner

Jackson Jaguars,

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. – The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL)

I hope that these exercises help you and your student(s)to be able to take time to enjoy the day. We all need social and emotional learning especially now. If you need anything, please contact me at the information below. Have a wonderful week.
