NEW!
Jackson School District Curriculum Online

 

We are proud to announce the launch of a new website that has a searchable database of the approved curriculum in the Jackson School District.

This resource, known as the
Rubicon Atlas Curriculum Program, provides public access to our most up-to-date curriculum, including overviews of content by grade level, unit summaries and the essential questions students are expected to be able to answer upon completion of each unit.

To get started, click on the icon above. Select the “Browse’’ tab to see a list of courses, or begin searching by grade and subject on your own.

For now, the site features our complete curriculum in the areas of English Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Physical Education and Health and World Language. This site will be a living database that will be updated as we update our curriculum to be fully aligned with state standards. (e.g. Science, Music, Art, Business, Technology).

We are proud of our curriculum and we hope you will enjoy being able to take a first-hand look at all the ways we strive to help students excel.

Principal's Message

May 20, 2016


Dear Johnson Families,

We had a wonderful week at the Johnson School.  Our fourth graders went to the State House and Barracks and our third graders went to the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. Thank you to the PTO for sponsoring these trips for our students. The safety patrol went to the State Police Barracks and then enjoyed a pizza lunch in our courtyard.   A great big thank you goes out to the PTO and all the parents who helped make teacher appreciation week so special. I cannot thank you enough for all of the wonderful food and treats provided throughout the week. 

Please pay careful attention to the paragraph below regarding Camp Invention. Mr. Levinson and I are excited to be hosting this program at the Johnson School in August. If your child enjoyed working in our design studio this year this might be the camp for them!
