SJES Mission Statement:
TOGETHER WE LEARN
Please take a moment to complete the Georgia Schools' Parent Survey. The survey should take only five to ten minutes. The data is used to help calculate our School Climate Star Rating. School climate is defined as "the quality and character of school life" that is based on the "patterns of students', parents', and school personnel's experiences of school life." Thank you for your help with this!
2016-2017 Pre-K Application Process
Applications will be available Monday, March 7 - Friday, April 1
Children who live in Jackson County and will be four (4) years old by September 1, 2016 should complete an application for Pre-K during this time.
You will need the following items to complete the application process:
1. Child's birth certificate.
2. Child's Social Security card
3. Child's immunization record
4. Proof of residency in school district (911 address only)
5. Photo ID of person registering child
6. Form 3300 - hearing/dental/vision
Completion of this application does not guarantee that your child will be enrolled in the Pre-K Program. The Jackson County Pre-K Program is limited to a certain number of students. There will be a drawing in late spring to determine which students will be enrolled. Once the process is complete, all applicants will receive notification by mail. Open House will be announced at a later date. Five year old children are not eligible for the Jackson County Schools Pre-K Program and will only be considered for enrollment in Kindergarten.
Yearbooks are on sale!
Hard Covers - $23
Soft Covers - $18
We are very excited to announce that South Jackson will be hosting a trail 5k and 3k (kids 7-15) run/walk on February 13, 2016.
Please come join the fun! If you are interested in volunteering or know of a local business that would be interested in being a sponsor, please contact the school
