Good evening Jackson parents, students, and staff! This is a reminder that this Thursday 6th and 7th grade students will turn in their IPads! On Friday, 8th grade students will turn in their devices. Each student will need to have their device, charging chord, and charging block. If a student does not have any of these items, the county will note it and charge for these items. If you don’t have one of the items, you can turn these in next Monday or Tuesday as well. Also, I want to mention that students will be cleaning out lockers on Thursday and Friday; please look for these items coming home as well. Have a great evening and Go Generals!

Good evening Jackson parents, students, and staff. This week we will begin the General Summative Assessment. All students will be testing Wednesday and Thursday of this week. Anyone that has missed testing will make up as they are at school. Please remember that student devices should be completely charged in order to test on these dates. Also, student phones and smartwatches are not allowed during testing. Students need to secure these devices in their lockers. If you have a device, your teacher may ask you to remove it and you can get it back later. All students need to arrive on time for school each day. It is important to get a good night rest, and eat something in the morning before testing. Please help encourage students to perform your best on these Summative Assessments, as they are important for helping with instruction next year, as well as for students benefits later in their educational career. We hope you have a great evening and Go Generals!
