A Message From the Principal









Greetings J. Garfield Jackson Sr. Academy Family!
 
Believe it or not, we are already halfway through the second cycle!  If you have not done so, please schedule a conference with your child’s teachers if you have any questions regarding his/her academic standing.  This is the time of year where student must buckle down in preparation for the assessments that will occur in April.  Children must FOCUS, STUDY, and keep ORGANIZED and in support we ask that you ensure homework is completed every night and that they continue to read towards the 30 Books Campaign. 
 
As you know, our school theme is, “The Leader in All of Us”. This theme represents the capacity for all students to be a leader in their own right.  We remind our students every day of the seven important habits that will help them achieve success.
 
Habit 1 – Be Proactive: You’re in Charge
Habit 2 – Begin with the End in Mind: Have a Plan
Habit 3 – Put First Things First: Work First, Then Play
Habit 4 – Think Win – Win: Everyone Can Win
Habit 5 – Seek First to Understand. Then to be Understood: Listen Before you Talk
Habit 6 – Synergize: Together is Better
Habit 7 – Sharpen the Saw: Balance Feels Best
 
Please be reminded that 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 EVERY school day
 
School begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 2:25 p.m.  Tardy students and students that leave early miss valuable academic time, as do students that miss too many days of school. It is important that students maximize their learning time. We pledge to maintain Jackson Academy’s commitment to providing the best possible education for your children but we can only do so with your help.
 
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 number at all times. 
 
Newly enrolled families are invited to visit our school for a tour of our facility and receive additional information.
 
We welcome your participation, input, and suggestions. Please feel free to come by the school, call, or email me at yjoseph@eastorange.k12.nj.us if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.  
 
Thank you for your cooperation and support!

Sincerely,

Ms. Joseph
