Jackson PTA Annual Fundraiser

The Jackson PTA is kicking off their annual fundraiser to pay for field trips and other quality programs that will benefit each and every Jackson student! Our goal this year is to raise $6,000 by February 28. It is easy to give--checks or cash accepted! The flyer below was sent home with every student this week. We have such a supportive community and I know we can do this! Thank you for helping our PTA to provide these enriching opportunities for our students.

It’s Box Tops submission time again! The class with the most Box Tops collected will receive a trophy to display in their classroom and the Winner will be announced on Jag Tube! Turn in your Box Tops before FEBURARY 21st so they can be included in our school’s April check – it’s our last chance this school year to earn cash for our school. All Box Tops turned in after this date will go toward next fall’s check. Thanks for your help!
