Teacher Request for 17-18

If you are making a teacher request, please submit a letter to Ms. Magpusao by Friday, May 26th. The letter must be on 8.5"X11" paper, preferably type-written. It must state how the teacher will academically enhance your child's learning environment and support your child's individual learning style. Your child's current year teacher takes into account a variety of factors when placing your child with a specific teacher and I respect their professional decision. It would be beneficial to discuss your ideas with your child's current teacher as well. Please remember, your request is a request and not a guarantee.

Student Absences

Please remember to call the school office when your child is absent. You may call anytime and leave a message at 257-5600 or 257-5644. All absences not cleared after 5 days will be unexcused.

Before School Supervision

Before School Supervision begins at 7:45am. Students are beginning to arrive at 7:25am. There is no supervision. Students are wandering the hallways or playing in the office area. Breakfast begins at 7:30am (cost $1.25, Reduced $0.30)

Pick Up/Drop Off

Just a reminder, please do not leave your car unattended in the front of the school or in the Bus Zone. Parents are also parking in the bus zone during drop off and having their child run between busses. Please escort your child across to the curb if you are using the bus lane in the morning. Please keep drop off and pick up safe for our students.


2016-2017 yearbooks are going fast! We have 11 left and once they're gone, they're gone! You can purchase one in the school office for $15 each. Yearbooks will be delivered the last week of school (they are preordered). Thank you!


Smarter Balanced Practice Test

The Smarter Balanced Practice Test and the Training Test provide students with a preview of test questions aligned to academic standards for grades 3–8 and high school in both English language arts/literacy and math. Both resources can help teachers and students prepare for the Smarter Balanced assessments.

Explore what the Field Test will look like by taking a Practice Test (around 30 questions) or a Training Test (around 8 questions). You can try English-Language Arts, Math or Performance Tasks.


All are welcome to participate (or sit back and observe!) in a JUSTAP meeting! Meetings typically run from 6pm to 7pm in room K-1

Being involved in your child's education can look a number of different ways. One way to help is by attending JUSTAP meetings. You will quickly learn more about the goals and visions of both fellow parents and the teachers of Jackson Elementary, all while being a crucial part in accomplishing these goals! You have a voice! Your involvement (no matter how big or small) WILL make a difference in our student's education! 

We understand you are busy, if you aren't able to attend a meeting, but would like to offer your help in some capacity, please contact Ms. Silveira or Ms. Magpusao.

So many things are possible with a STRONG and involved parent teacher group! Please consider attending a meeting.

Thank You!

Fundraiser Information Center

Below you will find information on current and upcoming fundraisers to support Jackson Elementary School. These are great opportunities to show support for your child's school, and get some pretty cool stuff! 

5/8 - 5/12

This week is Staff Appreciation at Jackson Elementary. JUSTAP has set up a "Wall of Fame" for the staff to view reasons why we think they are STARS! If you would like to add to the wall, you can click HERE to print a sheet, fill out, and send to school with your child, or turn them in to the office.


We kicked this week of appreciation off with a red carpet Waffle Bar Breakfast. Tomorrow (Tuesday, May 9th) we ask that your child wear their teacher's favorite color (or close to that color, other options are a ribbon in their hair or a nice student made card or note to their teacher or staff member would be awesome!). 


The rest of the week we have roses, cupcakes, and a "trophy" of our appreciation. Thank you for taking time out this week to show that EVERY staff member here at Jackson Elementary is valued and appreciated ALL YEAR long <3 


Have a wonderful week!





Box Tops for Education!

Don't forget to collect Box Tops and turn them in to your child's teacher! This is an easy way to support Jackson Elementary School without buying anything extra.

Remember 4th grade parents, you can start paying your child's science camp account for 2017-2018 Science Camp. The cost will be $350 for 4 days and 3 nights.

Payment coupons will be sent home monthly. Deposit of $100 to reserve a spot is due by the last day of this school year. We will be attending Science Camp November 14th- November 17th. 

2016-2017 Volunteers
