Jackson Elementary School is truly a shining example of excellence in education. From our incredible student body to the parents and staff, we are a community committed to creating an environment in which our students not only exceed the state standards but learn to be better citizens.
There are so many ways throughout the year that our students pull together to help the community, both locally and globally. Please check the main page often for announcements of current projects and how you and your child can get involved.
Here are some of the ways our Jaguars give back:
- Canned food drive—every year we help the Sacramento food bank
- Pajama day—wear a pair and bring a pair— donated pajamas and books for children’s home
- Heifer International project -- collected small change and pennies to buy goats and cows for underdeveloped nations
- $5000 raised for the red cross for Hurricane Katrina victims
- Fire safety project -- students cleared brush and worked with the fire safety council and the fire department to bring goats to a neighborhood area needing brush control
- Partnering with "Hands for Hope," a local youth-led, non-profit, non-denominational outreach organization with a mission to make a difference in the lives of others with positive actions, kind words and visions of hope.
