Communication is Important

August 28, 2015

Dear Jackson Families,

Thank you to all parents/guardians who attended our annual curriculum night last evening. The staff and I hope you found it very informative and beneficial to understanding what your Jaguar experiences on a regular basis. This event is one of our strategies for communicating with our parents and families early in the school year.  For more information about your child’s grade level curriculum, please check out the 
curriculum brochures on the district website.

Our first student late arrival day is coming up on Wednesday, September 2nd.  School starts one hour later –9:15 am.  Bus times are simply pushed back one hour from their regular times.  This provides our staff with the opportunity to engage in deeper professional development, including topics on instructional strategies and developing effective student assessments.

Mark your calendars for Friday, September 11th in the evening.  Our PTA will be hosting a pep rally event to celebrate the start of the year.  With good weather, we hope to be outside! 

As we work to maintain safe arrival and pick-up procedures, thank you for driving slowly around the school block, as well as following the various signs, crossing guards, and 5th grade patrol students. For safe, efficient entrance into our Jackson parking lot, please do not enter by traveling east-bound on Van Buren and turning left into the lot during the time before and after school.  Also, in the morning, Mitchell Street is only a southbound drop and go area – no standing or parking.  With everyone's help, these busy times can work well.

Enjoy your weekend!
Ryan D. Anderson
