Hello Mary W. Jackson Community,
I hope everyone had a wonderful Spring Recess. As we move into the last 9 weeks of the school year, it is looking very busy. Please make sure to visit our calendar on the website for the most up to date information on what is going on. I want to highlight two activities that we will be doing. One is the MWJ Art Show on May 13. We are so excited to have a spring activity to welcome families back into the building for a fun community event. We will have student artwork displayed, a book fair, and some fun hands-on art activities for kids. Food will also be available. Admission and food are free. We would love to have as many of our students and families come as possible. We want the community to see the school as a safe, fun and supportive place in the community again, after almost two years of COVID restrictions. A second activity I would like to highlight is, our first ever “Kindergarten Round-Up". This will be a special activity for our students who will be coming to Kindergarten in August 2022. “Kindergarten Round Up” will be May 16. We will be gathering in the gym for some information and then families and students are welcome to ask questions, get or fill out paperwork and tour the school. We will also have refreshments.
Please do not forget how important attendance is at school. We will be starting our spring testing in the next couple of weeks, and it is VERY important students attend school every day that they are able. Staying home when you are not sick is NOT an option. If you need assistance in this area, please reach out. We want to be as supportive as we can with getting our students to school daily.
Again, please go to our calendar tab to see ALL the wonderful activities we have planned for the last few months of school.
Peace and Happiness to All,
“Acting” Principal – Mary W Jackson Elementary School
