Jackson News


Today wraps up another great week here at Jackson!  This week, our staff took time to reflect on communication, both professional and parent communication.  As we settle into routines and procedures, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher with questions.  We want to maintain a proactive approach in working together between home and school.  We value your partnership!  


Next week, we will launch our PBIS (positive behavior intervention system) at Jackson.  This is a system that has been used at our school the past two years. It focuses on rewarding and recognizing positive behavior and expectations around our school. Our focus for the next few weeks will be how to greet others with eye contact, a smile, and a hello or good morning when entering school.  Classrooms will work towards earning a reward for improving the way that we greet others.  Greetings help us build community and create a warm, positive environment to start the school day.


When you visit Jackson School to volunteer, we will be asking you for identification and scan your license into our Raptor system.  In order to be in the building for any visit, you will need to bring your identification with you.  Once your license is scanned into our system, we will not need to rescan every time you visit.   We will provide you with an ID badge for your time in the building that includes your name, picture, and the location of your visit (library, classroom, lunchroom, etc.)  We ask that when you volunteer, you stay in the location specified on your badge.  This helps keep our building safe and secure.  


I hope to see many of you at our PTA meeting Wednesday night at 7pm in our Jackson Library.  This is a great opportunity to learn more about Eureka Math and hear more about how we can work together between home and school to support our students!

Parent-teacher conference sign up WILL take place online. I hope to have more details to share next week.  In the meantime, please mark your calendars and know that conferences are November 20 and 21, 2017.


Please remember that when you child is tardy or leaves school early, it impacts their attendance and can be disruptive to their learning. Please make every effort to make appointments for outside of the school day.  Also, the district policy for vacation requests requires two week notice in order for an absence to be excused.  Please provide us with this two week notice for vacation.
