So Much to Celebrate!

What a great week it's been! We had representatives from the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce attend our monthly positive behavior assembly, to announce our Crystal Apple Award nominees. Brent Buchanan, Audrey Davis, and Christa Pruss were recognized for their outstanding service to kids. The best part was, it was a total surprise! A special thank you to the families and students who took the extra time to nominate these amazing educators. We are so grateful to have them at Jackson. Well done team!


Not only are the teachers fabulous, but we have so many students doing great things as well. We had teams represent us in both the state chess tournament, and the OBOB regional tournament. The Jackson chess team took 3rd place in the tournament and the Rocking Readers OBOB team took 4th place. A special shout out to Mrs. Hall, who attended both tournaments to cheer on our kids. Way to represent Jaguars!

Rocking Readers Take 4th Place!
