Dear Jackson Families,
It is hard to believe that this brings the 2019-2020 school year to a close. Our students have shown us incredible independence and perseverance over the last 10 weeks. We are so proud of all their hard work! This week, we celebrated students with virtual class parties and picnics and recognized our 5th graders with a virtual clap in ceremony with our staff. It is important that even though it is different circumstances, we recognize the hard work and talent of our Jackson Jaguars.
There are many unknowns as we head into summer. As soon as we have any information to share, I will be reaching out to you. Please keep an eye on your email for messages from myself and/or Dr. Moyer this summer. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.
Chromebook/iPad Drop-off: Tuesday from 10am-2pm
Please see information here for collection of school issued devices. If you have a school issued Chromebook or iPad for Remote Learning, you need to return it to school on Tuesday using a contactless drop off. If your child is participating in any formal D205 Summer School, please keep your device.

Celebrating Mrs. Schneider’s Retirement
After a long and wonderful career as a lifelong educator, Mrs. Schneider will be retiring at the end of this year. Quarantine celebrations are just not enough to honor her commitment and dedication to Jackson School! She is a fierce advocate for our students, making sure each had the opportunity for success. She has been a dedicated sponsor for student council and safety patrol. We will miss her hilarious sense of humor, nicknames, and leadership. We wish you well, Mrs. Schneider.
