Jackson Elementary is located at 620 South 31st Street. We serve a diverse population of students in PreK - 6th Grade. Our staff provides rigorous instruction that challenges our students to excel academically. With the support of Special Education Services, ESL, and Paraprofessionals, we challenge our students to give their best along with our partners such as Partnership 4 Kids(P4K). Partnership 4 Kids provide our students with the opportunity to set academic and socials goals. We also have a partnership with Completely Kids. The Completely Kids Program provides care and academic support for our students after school. Jackson Elementary is becoming a Dual Language School. With each passing year we will add a new grade level. For the 2014-15 school year we are excited to add Second Grade to the Dual Langauge Program. With the Dual Language Program students will be given instruction in both English and Spanish. We are also fortunate to have partnership with some educational institutions in our community. Our educational partnerships include UNO, Creighton University, and Creighton Preparatory School.
We are Jackson! Believe!Achieve! Succeed!
Teachers at Jackson worked with Dr. Kathy Kennedy to complete the First Teaching Study Group. Teachers were able to observe their colleagues during a Guided Reading lesson. Teachers came out with great ideas on how to enhance and add rigor to their Reading Block.
