Hello Jackson Families!

Thanks to all our parent and staff volunteers who made Jackson's Up & Active Day so much fun for our students! The fun continued this week with Fourth Grade's trip to the Perot Museum and Kindergarten's Program, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, tomorrow. Next Thursday, 5/26, is Skate Night followed by a student holiday on May 27th and 30th. My goodness, May is flying by!
