From the Superintendent’s Desk - August, 2018
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! After months of planning and groundwork, we are excited about the beginning of the school year. Over the summer, the administrative team and I, along with many of our teachers, reviewed data and action plans to help bring our goals to fruition. There is a great deal of excitement as we endeavor to provide the best possible balanced educational program for every student who enters our doors. Our teachers and administrators have worked so hard to ensure resources are in place to support teaching and learning. For parents/guardians whose students are entering our schools for the first time, we extend a special welcome and a heartfelt thank you for the trust you have placed in us as a school system. As always, we will have an exceptional academic program in place to provide our students with the resources and opportunities they need to enhance learning and to prepare them for their futures.
Thanks to the support of our community and parents, and the excellence of our teachers, administrators, and support staff, we are confident that our schools will continue to be highly successful. As we sharpen our focus, bringing forth even more enrichment and project-based learning for all students, we are confident that we are stimulating innovative thinking, and providing students with the skills they need to tackle real-world problems. Thank you for your dedication to our mission: To inspire students to achieve academic excellence and make positive contributions to our interconnected community and world.
We are truly Future Focused and Tradition Rich!
On behalf of the Jasper City Schools, please accept my thanks for your support of our schools and our students and, on a personal level, for the opportunity to work, grow and learn together. – Ann Jackson
