Pulse Check - Family Survey

This is a reminder about our survey data that was collected last year. Remember, you told us that you desired to find ways to feel more welcome at Jackson. As a result of your response, we held a "Eat lunch with your child" week in September. The participation was awesome. Please remember, you are ALWAYS welcome to eat lunch with your child. Just let your child's teacher know that you will be coming. Although outside food is not permitted in our cafeteria (McDonald's, etc.), you may order an adult tray lunch, or just have friendly conversation with your student as he/she eats. Also, in September, participation in parent/teacher conferences was at an all-time high. Several families stopped by our welcome table and shared information with volunteers from First Broad Street United Methodist Church. Please continue giving us feedback. You are an essential part of our school community.

The month of November is dedicated to coming together as a district to serve others by recognizing needs in our community and empowering students to change lives.

The classroom that collects the most canned food will be receiving a special prize!
