SJES Mission Statement:
TOGETHER WE LEARN
Behind every discovery is a curious mind! If you are on the search for a fun, weeklong summer program for your rising first through sixth grader, you’re in luck! East Jackson Elementary School will be hosting Camp Invention from June 16th through the 20th.
You can also see all the excitement on YouTube.
Georgia Parent Survey
The Georgia Department of Education is asking that all parents take the Georgia Parent Survey. The results of the survey will be used to calculate the School Climate Star Rating for South Jackson Elementary School. The survey has 20 questions and should take no more than 5-10 minutes. Survey responses are completely anonymous. We are asking that all parents take the online survey by March 14, 2014. The link to the Georgia Parent Survey is posted below. Thank you for your continued time and support.
NEW Innovative School Model Survey
In an effort to maximize resources and provide the best possible education for our students, our school has been considering a variety of innovative models for next year. As a school we realize that our students live in a digital age. Therefore, our plans for next year will include an emphasis on technology. We want to know what South Jackson parents and students value in terms of education and ask that you take a couple of minutes to answer a short (9 question) survey. Please click on the appropriate link below to access the REVISED questionnaire.

Weather Make Up
The Georgia State Board of Education granted a waiver for local school systems to forgive days missed due to recent inclement weather. 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!
