Jaguars Conclude their Year

May 26, 2016

Dear Jackson Families,

This has been a strong year for our Jaguars.  They have accomplished many things, and we are proud.  Thank you for all the ways you have supported your child and Jackson School throughout the year.  You are a vital part of your child’s education throughout his/her life, and at Jackson, the parents and families are a key reason why our Jaguars succeed.  Today for kindergarteners and tomorrow for 1st-5th grade students, they will bring home their final progress reports for the school year.

Thank you to all of the parents who helped to do many tasks this year.  Your involvement in all types of ways makes a positive impact.  A big thank you goes to our PTA who is so supportive of the entire Jackson community.  

Important dates to get on your calendar for next year include:

  • Friday, August 12th from 2:00-4:00 – Pre-ordered School Supply Pickup
  • Wednesday, August 17th at 3:30 pm – Meet the Teacher & Supply Drop-off
  • Thursday, August 18th – First Day of School (This is a full day of school.)
  • Wednesday, August 24th – Curriculum Night


On behalf of the Jackson staff, I wish for all of you a wonderful summer.  To our 5th graders, we wish you the best at middle school, and we know you will accomplish so much in the years to come. We look forward to seeing the ways in which you help others and make an impact in the world around you.

This will be our final weekly update for the 2015-2016 school year.

Have a wonderful summer!
Ryan D. Anderson
Principal

Instead, parents will receive a secure email document informing them of each of their child(ren)'s placement for the 2016-17 school year. For families that do not have email, a first-class letter will be mailed to the home address on file providing this information.
