Jaguars Conclude DARE Curriculum

May 22, 2015

Dear Jackson Families,

Thank you for your support of our Relay for Life efforts.  In our multipurpose room this week, students had brought many decorated luminaria bags to show their support of Colleen and our efforts to support the American Cancer Society.  If you are able, we encourage all Jaguars and parents to attend the June 12th Relay for Life event at Berens Park.  For more details, please see the flier previously distributed

This week, we held our annual DARE graduation event for our 5th grade students and families.  It’s very symbolic of the passage of time in the lives of these soon-to-be middle school students.  Officer Cuzzone led our ceremony, which included a great story of his DARE experience as a student in District 205, as well as a summary of the lessons learned and the impact on the lives of children.  Several Jaguars read their DARE essays to reinforce how the DARE program has affected them for their years ahead.

We still have numerous items in our lost and found.  Please have your Jaguar check for any missing items.  After June 3rd, remaining pieces will be donated.

The end of the year is one and a half weeks away!  The last day of school for all students (K-5) will be Wednesday, June 3rd.  It is a full day of school.    

Before that, field day is Monday, June 1st.  Good sportsmanship, teamwork, and having fun are important parts of this special day. Please send your child prepared with sun protection.  You can find more information about field day and volunteering for the activities by visiting our PTA website

Important dates to get on your calendar for next year include:
Tuesday, August 18th (Time TBA) – Meet the Teacher
Wednesday, August 19th – First Day of School (This is a full day of school.) 
Thursday, August 27th (Time TBA) – Curriculum Night

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!
Ryan D. Anderson
