Field Day 2017

Jackson News


Each day at school, our students recite the Jackson School Pledge following the Pledge of Allegiance. It's a character pledge which has connections with the our PBIS initiative to help students be successful.

At Jackson School, we:

Are prepared

* Have a positive attitude

* Make wise choices

* Work and play safely


This year, our staff has continued its work with our students to try to help them operationalize this pledge; students need to understand what these statement look and sound like.

Some of these teaching efforts occur in common areas and during the lunch hour. Throughout the year, we will be recognizing some students who step up to demonstrate these characteristics during the lunch hour.

For the character pledge of working and playing safely, our lunch staff nominated the following students for our lunch PAWS award:

First Grade:

Robert Pauling

Ava Martellotta

Alexandra Kroumov


Second Grade:

Emma Braathen

Madeline Braathen

Ava Amendola


Third Grade:

Nathan Nicholson

Ryan Meydrech

Christopher Leon


Fourth Grade:

Quinton Pintozzi

Jack Sebastian

Elijah Badeaux


Fifth Grade:

Jake Juskie

Nicole Vitullo

Peter Benson


Congratulations to all of our award recipients and thank you to all students who step up to work and play safely during their days at Jackson!


May 25th


Today, I got a chance to be the principal for half of a day.  I thought that it was going to be plain fun.  Well, I was wrong. Today, I learned about the various duties of a principal.  Mr. Anderson taught me about what he did every day.  We talked about the budget, and we spent possibly an hour trying to make a schedule for field day.  We went to every corner of this school and walked through every hall.  I even got to arrange a special lunch with some 5th graders.


Today was fun.  It was more fun than I thought it would be.  A principal's job is hard.  I thought it was just to make sure no one did anything bad and make sure the teachers worked well with the students.  I was very very wrong.  A principal's best job is to let students learn.  Mr. Anderson has made so many decisions that made me think, "Why did he do that?"  Now, I know that he made those decisions so students could learn better.  Mr. Anderson is devoted to learning.

Elmhurst District 205 is thrilled to welcome Dr. Bill Daggett of the International Center for Leadership in Education to the community on Monday, August 14. In the afternoon, Dr. Daggett will be the keynote speaker at our opening faculty meeting. That evening, we cordially invite all local parents, community members, school board members, business and community leaders, legislators, and area educators to share with us a unique and exciting opportunity to experience his important message first hand. The festivities begin at 7:00 p.m. in the York High School Commons.

Dr. Daggett will discuss the concepts of rigor, relevance and relationships and share some important concepts about his organization's Rigor and Relevance Framework. Most importantly, attendees will be challenged to think about the role of public education as it relates to this country's future and the world economy.  I predict that if you are able to join us, you will never think about "school" the same way again.

Clear your calendars now!  I hope to see you then!

Dr. David Moyer

Parents or guardians are expected to schedule vacations during the summer or on school holidays. In instances where absences are requested for vacation, parents and guardians must submit a written request to the principal two weeks in advance. The absence will be considered unexcused if this procedure is not followed. Students approved for a vacation will be expected to complete missing class work after returning. Students will be given one day for each day missed to make up work. Teachers will not provide class work or assignments in advance.
