Welcome to South Jackson Elementary School
SJES Vision Statement:
SJES is dedicated to building and nurturing a community of life-long learners focused on academic excellence, accountability, and respect for individual differences.
SJES Mission Statement:
TOGETHER WE LEARN
South Jackson Farm to School and South Jackson After School programs are considering joining together for either a partial (2-3 weeks) or full summer camp open to students enrolled to attend Jackson County Elementary Schools for the 2016-2017 school year.
We need your input! We would like to offer this for the full summer, however if we do not have enough participation we would have to close. If we see that there were enough students for a partial camp, we plan to offer that. In order for us to know what we can offer, we need your help. Please fill out the attached form and return it to South Jackson ASAP!
That cost will depend on how many students sign up, and how many weeks we are open. Typically the cost of summer camp in Jackson County would consist of: $25 registration fee per child, $100 per week per child with a discount for additional siblings.
Comprehensive LEA Improvement Plan
Jackson County School System is seeking input in reviewing and revising our Comprehensive LEA Improvement Plan (CLIP) and System Parent Involvement Plan.
These plans help school systems coordinate their federal programs so the needs of the students can be met.
The goals for federal programs are:
- Improve student achievement
- Provide professional development and growth opportunities
- Improve parent involvement in their children’s education
The Jackson County Sheriff's Office would like to cordially invite you to attend the 2015-2016 C.H.A.M.P.S. Graduation. Each student will be presented a certificate of completion and there will also be an award for C.H.A.M.P.S. student of the year for his/her school as well as an award for 1st and 2nd place in the essay contest.

Spring Into Art
Mark your calendar! On Tuesday May 17 from 5:30-7 our awesome art teacher, Ms. Seifert, will be leading a guided painting. Participants will be creating a Spring flower painting on canvas. The cost of the is $5. Ms. Seifert will be sending home a RSVP form in the coming weeks, and you may send in your reservation and money at that time. There will be a short intermission during which pizza and drinks will be sold. Parents and family members are invited to join as well. This should be a great night and a wonderful way to support the visual arts program!
