Parent Involvement at Jackson Elementary

Parent Advisory Committee (PAC)

The PAC is an important part of the school. This committee is open to all parents, it is not an exclusive group. This committee is actively involved in the decisions that influence the policies and curricular decisions of our school.

School Volunteers

The school operates on the philosophy of “Open Doors” which promotes parents being actively involved in the education of children. Parents are needed in a variety of places -  Guided Reading Program; library; classroom; computer lab; extra-curricular drivers; special events and many other areas. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Please contact the school or your child’s teacher and ask where you could help.

School Communication


Teachers and students use the school planner as a communication tool between school and home. Please take time each evening to review this planner and sign in the appropriate location. It is important that the planner is returned each day to school.


The school will be sending home monthly newsletters this year. 

Report Cards

During the school year we are required to send home three formal and two informal report cards (Interim Reports). Report cards are designed to inform parents how their child is doing and how they can work with the teachers to ensure success for their child. Teachers will contact the homes of students who are experiencing difficulty early to prevent any surprises. Parents are welcome to contact the school at any time during the school year to discuss the progress of their child.

Channels of Communication

        Step One:       Speak to the person

        Step Two:       If you are not able to resolve the problem, speak to the principal

        Step Three:     If you are still not able to resolve this program, contact the School Board Office.
