THIS WEEKEND COME SEE JORDAN/JACKSON'S PRODUCTION OF "THE BIG BAD MUSICAL"
This year’s production, “The Big Bad Musical” is a courtroom drama directed by Miss Steinbach. The jury (the audience) must decide the outcome of the biggest trial ever in the fairy-tale world! The notorious Big Bad Wolf is being slapped with a class-action lawsuit by storybooks of quirky characters who want to get even: Little Red Riding Hood, her Grandmother, the Three Little Pigs, the Shepherd in charge of the Boy Who Cried Wolf, Sydney Grimm as the commentator on live Court TV, and the two greatest legal minds in the Enchanted Forest—the Evil Stepmother and the Fairy Godmother.
The 5th Grade Musical will be held in the High School Auditorium
Friday, March 18 at 7pm (Cast A)

BOOKFAIR MARCH 21 - MARCH 25
The Scholastic Book Fair is next week at Jordan/Jackson! Students will be visiting the fair with their class. As a reminder, please send cash in a resealable bag and make checks payable to MESA with the monetary limit written in the check's note section, if applicable. Scholastic is also offering a cash-free system called e-Wallet. After the fair, unused eWallet funds will become an eGift card that you can use at the Scholastic Online Store or to fund a future fair. See below for more information on eWallet and to set up an account.
The book fair will be open to the public on March 24 from 11:30am to 8pm. Please consider visiting the fair in person to support our school. Just a friendly reminder to bring your license. 100% of our book fair profit goes toward giving books right back to the school through MESA programs like Bookworms and One Book, One Grade, as well as providing books for each teacher's classroom library.
Please consider volunteering to help with set-up and clean-up. We will also need help to staff the fair during class visits and our Open to Public shifts. The daily shift schedule for class visits has been provided in the SignUp Genius if you wish to coordinate your volunteer time with your child's time at the fair.
