Data Night at JCMS

Data NightOn February 13th the Jackson County Middle School Staff partnered with GEAR UP to present a Parent Data Night.  It was an amazing turnout of about 63 parents and students!

Parents were invited to come and explore their student’s data that had been collected from the IOWA test, CERT Assessment, I-Ready Diagnostic, and KPREP Assessment.  Mrs. Tammy Marcum, Mrs. Alison McQueen and Mrs. Kayla Morgan provided an explanation of how each student was performing according to their scores.

Parents were then invited to attend an informational session with Mr. Jordan Hays and Mr. David York about how the scores will affect their students in the near future with the transition to high school, and in the distant future, with after high school plans.

We would like to thank all of the teachers and staff that were involved in planning and assisting with the event and hope to make this an annual occurrence!

Preschool Receives New Furniture

Preschool1Community Action Council (CAC) South Central Head Start, began their partnership with  Jackson County Preschool in January of 2019.  They are a great asset to our preschool program and community .  Working together, this partnership allows benefits to our students that could not exist otherwise.  One of those such benefits is the addition of new preschool sized classroom furniture and other materials to all of our preschool classrooms, located at McKee, Sand Gap, and Tyner Elementary.  Early childhood classrooms play a pivotal role in the growth and development of the children within them.  Effective early childhood classrooms provide an engaging environment for children by offering opportunities for individualized teaching and learning, plenty of interesting, accessible materials, and enhanced child participation in play and learning.  By providing this type of learning environment to preschool students and their families, we begin to promote their early learning skills while instilling a sense of independence and success as they grow, develop, and learn during this early stage of childhood development.

Thank you CAC and Preschool Staff for all you do for our children!
