Principal's Note

Dear Families,


We had a great opening week at Jordan/Jackson! It is always a special time for us to welcome returning and new students to our school.


We hope that you find this newsletter a valuable source of information throughout the year. The weekly editions will highlight how the curriculum and instruction "comes to life", like the photos from our Learning/Community Garden at the end of this edition.


You will also find notifications of upcoming school events, helpful reminders, MESA updates and other district-wide information.


In addition, we will publish special editions with a central focus on topics such as: online safety and peer relations.


Below you will find some links to help support your children as they transition back to school.


Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
