Dear Wildcat Families,
Welcome to the 2014-15 school year! We look forward to an exciting and educationally challenging school year. The staff of Jackson Elementary has been working hard and is committed to making your child’s educational experience the best it can possibly be. I want to take this opportunity to remind our patrons of the importance of becoming a “Community of Learners”. Our school, as with many organizations, is in itself a community, that community needs support, guidance, at times help, volunteers, etc. Please take it upon yourself, whether you are a parent, sibling, grandparent, or student, to make the “Community” as strong as it can be. Our goals cannot be reached with out this assistance so please seek ways to help in areas that are in need by either contacting the school office, your classroom teacher or the Jackson Elementary PTO. I thank you in advance for your help and support.

Parent Afternoon Pick up
Carpool lines at elementary schools tend to be somewhat long. Thank you in advance for following our arrival/dismissal process and being patient in the carpool line. This is putting the safety of our students first. Our process for student pick up at 3:05 has not changed from last year. A descriptive map will be sent home with each car rider student and will be available in the main office and also on our school website under the Document section.
School Supply Lists
The supply list for each grade level, along with other useful information can also be found on our website under the Document drop link at the top of the school webpage.
I am looking forward to another excellent year at Jackson Elementary. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email or call.
