Safety is our first priority and the expected weather will be a threat to transportation and especially school bus transportation. Thank you for your understanding and please be weather aware this evening and tomorrow.

Memorial Park Elementary hosted a literacy coaching lab with 3rd graders this week. Our JCS instructional coaches put their whole heart into their job, as well as motivate and encourage each other in their monthly coaching labs. We also appreciate our ARI support team, Tracie Howard and Rochelle Harrison, for facilitating our learning. The difference these leaders make each day for JCS is very valuable.
Dr. Jackson recently honored our school resource officers, counselors, and mental health staff with a special recognition breakfast at the central office. These folks are a vital and crucial part of our system. We greatly appreciate their diligence and dedication. Thanks for being... #HerefortheKids

Maddox Intermediate School hosted a math coaching lab with fourth graders today!
Maddox Intermediate School hosted a math coaching lab with fourth graders today! We are fortunate to have amazing Instructional Coaches at each of our JCS schools. Our coaches frequently participate in coaching labs and each host district observations throughout the school year. Their work makes all the difference in the willingness teachers have to take risks with one another, to be focused in what they are learning, and to make commitments that create more coherent and productive learning experiences for our students. Coaching labs allow us to embed professional learning during the school day. It allows teachers to develop a stronger, clearer shared understanding of how to create classroom learning environments where children are invested in their own learning.
