It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2017 - 2018 school year. Jackson-Steele Elementary is a K - 5 school with approximately 170 students. It is a neighborhood school with very strong historical contributions. Our goal at Jackson-Steele is to provide a quality education in a safe and welcoming environment where all students are challenged to reach their full potential. Our staff and students live that to the fullest and know that it is our very purpose for being here.
I am so inspired by this outstanding staff of educators with whom I share my days. They are smart, passionate and dedicated professionals who bring the very best of themselves to our community every day.
Our goals can be most effective with a strong home-school connection to help make a positive and productive experience for our students. Open lines of communication are an important part of your child’s education. To ensure that we have a successful school year, it is important that students are in school every day and on time. In addition, please read with your child every night. Research has shown that students who read or are read to for just 20 minutes at home every night perform at high academic levels. Also, practice math facts daily. When students know their math facts from memory, they can focus their thinking to solve more complex word problems.
Jackson- Steele is committed to providing a strong academic program in which students are actively engaged in their own learning through rigorous instruction designed to promote high student achievement and growth. We firmly believe that parents and families play an active and important role in your students’ education and we welcome you as partners and invite you to volunteer your time and talents to our school.
Together we can achieve great success.
Mrs. Bessie Morgan, Principal
