We are pleased to announce the recipient of the Classified Employee of the Year for the 2015-16 School Year. Mrs. Regina (Gina) Woods is an Instructional Assistant II in our upper grade moderate/severe classroom. She provides support to the students and teacher, helping students as they complete assignments and meet their daily obligations. Mrs. Woods has been at Jackson since and has demonstrated the high quality of work we have come to expect from all our classroom support personnel. She is always cheerful and quick to lend a hand in whatever way she can provide support, both in and outside her classroom. Her expertise is guiding students through a lesson, making good decisions about what students need and supervising students during lunch with a kind and nurturing hand, is greatly appreciated by all who come in contact with her. Mrs. Woods volunteers on School Site Council and other schoolwide events, demonstrating her belief that everyone should work together and pitch in for the benefit of the Jackson students and families we serve. Congratulations, Gina Woods on this well-deserved honor!

Please remember to have your students check our lost and found for any missing items. With the weather becoming colder there has been an increase in jackets and other items being left in the lunchroom and on the playground. Please remember to check yourself or have your students check for anything they may be missing. Jackets, sweaters, lunch boxes, hats, etc.
As part of our continuing efforts to provide information regarding your student’s progress and status, parents will be able to view information from our secure school database using the RUSD Parent Portal.
The Jackson staff feels fortunate to have wonderful volunteers who work with our teachers to support achievement. Our volunteers are parents, community members and retired teachers. Volunteers are needed in in all of our classrooms, even in the upper grades! If you are interested in volunteering in a classroom, in our library, or even in the office, contact us! Regular volunteers must be approved by the classroom teacher, library media clerk or office staff and must adhere to a regular schedule. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate volunteers on a drop-in basis. You may volunteer in your child's classroom for single events as well. When volunteers are needed for events such as class parties, chaperoning field trips, or other events, the teacher will send information home to request volunteers. Your child's teacher will then notify you of the details of volunteering for that event, or if the need for volunteers has been satisfied.
