Teacher of the Year 2015-2016
Congratulations to our 2015-2016 Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Lush!
Thank You Lowe's!
The students and staff at South Jackson Elementary School in Georgia would like to say THANK YOU to Lowe's for the generous Toolbox for Education Grant. This money completely funded phase 1 of the SJES trail system. This money allowed several projects to be completed and included materials for a 30ft. bridge, information kiosk, signs, maps, and all tools needed for construction and maintenance. Phase 1 of our trail system is complete with a total 1.9 miles of trails. Phase 2 should be completed by the fall. Thanks to all the volunteers and students who have helped make this process such a success!
South Jackson Receives 5 Star School Climate Rating
We are thrilled to announce that South Jackson recently received a 5 star school climate rating based on surveys completed by students, faculty, and parents. A 5 star rating is the highest rating given to any school and represents an excellent school climate. The National School Climate Center defines school climate as “the quality and character of school life - the ‘culture' of a school. A positive school climate fosters youth development and student learning, which are both essential for academic success, career-skill improvement, and overall quality of life."
Paraprofessional of the Year
