A Message from the Principal

September 2013

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to Jackson Elementary School and the 2013-2014 school year! I take great pleasure in welcoming you and your child to our school. Jackson has a reputation for an exemplary staff that is highly student-centered and accelerates learning for all.  The continuing connection between school and home is vital in your child's success at school. We value the opportunity to work with you as partners so our students experience meaningful growth academically, socially, and emotionally. This school year our theme will circle around our school mascot of a jaguar. 

"Whoooo's Got Their Spots On?"

The "spots" represent quality traits that we will be encouraging to see in our students. In addition to our four core traits of being respectful, responsible, safe and productive, each month a new trait or "spot" will be highlighted.    Throughout the year, we will continue to build on our third year of the PBIS model.  In the Spring of 2012, Jackson School was recognized by the Wisconsin PBIS Network as a School of Merit.  Students will be "spotted" for their good behavior in the hallways, classrooms, playground, and cafeteria.

There are many opportunities for students and parents to get involved in numerous activities and teams. You will find opportunities available in these sections on this website: programs and activities, parent and community involvement, and special events.

This is looking up to be a very exciting year.  I thank you in advance for all you will do to make this the great educational community that Jackson is. I look forward to working with you and will maintain an open door policy to ensure good communication between school and home. And speaking of home...Jackson is your child's home away from home. I invite you to make it yours too.  If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions during the year please do not hesitate to call your
child’s teacher at 920-459-3573, or me at 920-459-3574.

I encourage you to get involved, get excited, get ready and get your spots on!  It is going to be a productive year of learning and togetherness.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Lynn Walters
Principal
