A Message From the Principal

Welcome to the 2015 – 2016 school year! It is with great excitement and anticipation that the staff and I welcome you to the new school year!  We pledge to maintain Jackson Academy’s vision to prepare our students to become well rounded, empathetic, college and career ready citizens, equipped to compete in our global society.
 
In collaboration with you, we will continue to provide a rewarding educational program for each and every child at J. Garfield Jackson Academy. In this endeavor, please be sure to inform our office immediately of any address and/or phone number changes.  We will continue to utilize the School Messenger system throughout the school year in order to keep you informed of important events; therefore, it is imperative that we have a working phone number at all times. 
 
The first day of school is Tuesday, September 8.  All students must arrive at 8:00 a.m. and will be dismissed at 2:25 p.m.  Drop off and pick up is located at the back of the building accessible from Lincoln Street.
 
Our Open House is scheduled for Thursday, September 17 at 6:00 p.m. The Open House will give you the opportunity to meet your child’s teachers and other staff members.  Our Scholastic Book Fair will also run that week.
 
Jackson Academy School is a uniform school.  Students must wear dark blue pants, skirts, or jumpers with white or light blue shirts or blouses.   Uniforms are to be worn MONDAYS – FRIDAYS. White or light blue t-shirts and navy blue sweatpants or shorts may be worn on gym days.
