Jackson Jaguar News

February 24th, 2019


It's been a busy few weeks at Jackson Elementary! We've seen a huge improvement in attendance lately, and our chronically absent percentage has dropped down to 8.61%. We are almost to our goal of 8%! In fact, our 4th grade students recently won the attendance competition for semester 1, and will be enjoying a pizza party this week. Well done 4th graders! We recognize we are in the midst of flu season, so if your child too sick for school, please keep them home. If you are planning on keeping your child home, please don't forget to call the attendance line to let us know.

Congratulations to Mrs. Buck's class for bringing in the most change for our Pennies for Patients drive. Our school community raised over $1,300 for children with Leukemia. Thank you for the generous donations. If you were unable to donate this time around, Mrs. Davis in kindergarten has a special request. She needs used items such as legos, lincoln logs, and dolls representing all ethnicities for center time. Thanks in advance!

Spring Auction Fiesta

I'm excited to announce our spring auction will be taking place on Friday, April 26th, here at Jackson Elementary. This will be a community event for families, but will incorporate aspects from our annual larger scale auction. Baskets and class art projects will be located in the library for the silent auction, and the popular teacher dates will be back! If you are willing to help get donations, or would like to help plan this event, please head to https://jacksonschoolpta.membershiptoolkit.com for more information.
