Good evening, Jackson parents, students, and staff. This is Mr. Kisner with a reminder about the General Summative Assessment in Writing that will take place this coming Wednesday morning. There are a few things that all students can do to prepare for this day. First, make sure you get plenty of rest the evening before and try to eat something that morning. We want everyone to be able to do their very best on this portion of the GSA. Also, please make sure you are on time for school. Remember the tardy bell rings at 8:00 am and students should be in homeroom and ready to start the day. We will begin the testing process shortly after homeroom begins. Finally, please make sure your IPad is completely charged for this day! Students will be testing using their own device and they need to make sure it is fully charged. We want all our students to do the very best on this assessment and show what they are capable of in the writing process. I hope you have a great evening and Go Generals!

Good evening, this is Mr. Kisner with an announcement concerning the yearly General Summative Assessment (GSA) given to students each year. This year, the GSA has been broken up into two different parts that are two separate times in the year. The Writing portion of the assessment will be given in early March. Jackson students will take the assessment on March 6 in the morning. I want to encourage everyone to make every effort to be at school on this day. Anyone that misses on this date will have to take the make-up test in May when we have the other GSA assessments. Thank you for your cooperation and have a great evening! Go Generals!

Good evening Jackson parents, students and staff. This is Mr. Kisner with a brief announcement concerning the dance tomorrow evening at Jackson from 7pm until 9pm. This is a dance for JMS students only. As a reminder, students that have not been at school for at least half the day, are not able to attend after school activities. Students are not allowed to bring in bags. You may have a small purse or clutch, but no other bags will be allowed in the building. Also, once you enter the dance, you cannot leave the building and re-enter. When a student’s ride gets to the school, they should exit the building and walk through the parking lot. Please be aware of students walking to vehicles for rides. Students will need to remain in the building until their ride is there and there should be no loitering in the lot. Student entrance to the dance is $5 and there will concessions, glow items for sale, and a photo booth that you can purchase those photos from. All money raised will be used for the Jackson PBIS program. I hope you have a great evening, and Go Generals!
