Pennies for Patients: Kids making BIG change by collecting SMALL change!
Pennies for Patients is a service learning, character education and philanthropy program that gives students a unique experience making a difference through teamwork—working together to aid thousands of children and adults in the fight blood cancers like leukemia.
Students not only enjoy participating, but feel a great sense of pride in helping others. Their efforts will gain the gratitude of blood cancer patients everywhere.

Each classroom will be given a class donation box for any spare change that students collect during this 3 week period. Our school is sponsoring Lexi a second grader who attends Sharon Elementary School in Loganville, GA.

Weather Make Up

Jackson County Schools will continue with regularly scheduled school days as reflected on the calendar approved by the BOE on Monday, February 10th. As previously communicated, students will attend school on March 14th and May 22nd. However, Jackson County Schools will not add May 23rd, nor will any potential change to start and end times be implemented. We are committed to providing focused instruction to ensure student preparedness for upcoming assessments and advancement in their educational careers. Thank you for your patience as we are committed to our students, families, and their success!

Athletics for Middle School
6th graders will be allowed to participate in all sports offered at our middle schools, OTHER THAN FOOTBALL. In an effort to ensure that ONLY players that are developmentally ready to play at the middle school level are kept on a team, a point of emphasis must be placed on the responsibility of our head varsity coaches in the tryout process for middle school sports. Our varsity and middle school coaches will have discussions and plan tryouts appropriately. We are all after the same thing, which is to produce fundamentally sound and successful programs that provide our students with a safe and fun experience that prepares them for the next level.
