Jaguars Supporting Good Causes

October 31, 2014

Dear Jackson Families,

Today, we held our pumpkin raffle for our first student council fundraiser.  Staff members created colorful, fun, scary, silly, and even edible creations.  The students were excited to see if their tickets would be pulled for a Halloween surprise.  Thank you to our student council for organizing this event, our staff for providing the creative pumpkins, and our students and families for donating.

Additionally, we are excited to be supporting other seasonal charity efforts.  Thank you for your participation in the United Community Concerns Association holiday food drive, occurring between now and November 21st.  At Jackson, we will be collecting non-perishable food items to support our local community. 

Now that the weather is starting to get colder, more parents are choosing to drive their children to school.  Thank you for taking the extra time and care while driving in the blocks around school.  Please remember not to park or stand in cross walks, and any mobile phone use in school zones is prohibited by Illinois State law.  Also, in the morning, please only drop off your children along Mitchell Avenue as you drive southbound.  Your patience and support of safe school zones is greatly appreciated.

Enjoy the extra hour of sleep when you change your clocks this weekend!

Have a great, safe Halloween weekend,
Ryan D. Anderson
