Welcome from your Jackson Jaguar Teachers and Staff to the NEW 2018-19 School Year!
All Things PLC! What does that mean? Jackson Elementary is committed to an on-going team process where we function as a Professional Learning Community so that ALL children can learn at high levels. Teachers learn in collaboration with one another and set goals aligned to the Iowa Standards and inclusive of all children. Teachers meet twice a week as a grade level team to discuss math and reading data and instructional strategies that engage and motivate students to achieve high levels of academic performance. But that is not all, the teachers have written new mission and vision statements aligned to their core beliefs about learning. Next, we set goals, some that are far reaching and others that are very SMART (Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Results-driven and Timely) to progress monitor our work as we journey to meet the needs of all students. The work of the teachers, with the support of administration, is to prepare our children for a future where they are college or career ready, and equipped with the skills they will need in the 21st Century. Finally, we welcomed Mrs. Messina, Ms. Endris, Miss Mitchell and Mrs. Gans to the Jackson Team this year. 2018 is an exciting time to be in education! Come visit, and see all that is happening at Jackson Elementary.
