Thank you to everyone who contributed to the PTA’s 2014 Write the Check Campaign.  Your contributions helped us raise $5,000  – enough to send each grade on a field trip this year!!!  The kids and teachers are so excited and we couldn’t have done it without the support of our wonderful Jackson families.  

If you did not get a chance to make a donation, it's not too late.  We still need to raise funds to provide upcoming events for our students such as: author’s visits, school wide assemblies (Dennis Lee), class parties, grade level music programs, and Up and Active Day.  

Every donation helps!  Thank you so much for your support!  

General PTA Meeting on Monday December 8 @ 6:00pm

Come out and meet other Jackson Parents and help with planning in Jackson events.  It is a great way to be part of your child's school experience and have fun too.
