Q Parent Connection (app)

Please take a few minutes to verify or update the information we have on file for each of your student(s) through the Q Parent Portal. You can do the update either:

Information to verify/update:

  • phone numbers
  • email addresses
  • military status
  • health concerns
  • emergency contact information

If you do not know your PIN and password, click the “Need Your Login Information” link on the sign in page, enter your email address, and you will receive an email containing your PIN and password. Once logged in

  1. Click on Information Update
  2. Review each section
  3. Submit

Once you have completed the update process, you should receive a verification email for each student. If your school has a registration event, you can show them this email as proof you have updated your information, saving you the time of filling out paper update forms.

If you need assistance, there is a help video on the left side of the ParentConnection home page. If you need additional assistance, please call Sue Lesar, Jackson's Staff Assistant at 719-328-5811.

Mrs. Ruiz's Counseling Corner

These have been stressful times for parents, students, and teachers. We at Jackson appreciate your partnership with us and your grace and patience as we develop the best plans for the physical, emotional, and social well-being of your children. Please be kind to yourself, your children, the Jackson staff and other parents. We all may not agree on how this needs to look, but we can practice respect for one another as well as engaging in healthy dialogue. We at Jackson are here to serve our students and families. Do not hesitate to reach out to us with questions and concerns. Remember: "Just because you are struggling does not mean you are failing"(author unknown).

We still have limited availability to participate in the Care and Share food bag program. If you are interested, please call or email Mrs. Ruiz and I will forward you the paperwork that needs to be signed.

Box Tops for Education

My name is Deb Tuxhorn and I am the Box Tops for Education Coordinator for Jackson Elementary. Box Tops for Education is a school fund-earning program that helps schools earn cash to buy things they need.

There are 2 ways to do this:

1) As you shop in your grocery stores, look for the logo on the boxes. They do not need to be clipped. Simply scan your receipt once you download the APP to your phone. Register Jackson Elementary to receive the points. We will earn 10 cents per item. You can also see the list of products and specials they are running.

2) Send in any clipped out Box Tops you may have saved over the summer with your student to their classroom. I will collect these from each classroom.

Thanks for supporting Jackson Elementary. Every Box Top helps!
