    My daughter had a wonderful kindergarten experience with Mrs. Waskom. She does such a great job of letting the parents know what their child is learning each week. I feel grateful to know Jackson school has a teacher like her. She makes each child feel special and confident in themself.

    This school has one of the best 1st grade teachers ever. Thank you Mrs.Altemeyer for making my daughter better at all the subjects that you teach to her. My best wishes go out to you and yours and thanks again.

    I think that this school is a great place to learn work and grow. Especially for me being the first Mexican to stay at Jackson as a 3rd grader. I didn't know english but Mrs. Isacss was patient with me so was Mr. Rucker and Mr. Woodard. I will never forget Mr. Thompson he was very nice and kind. I don't know what I would've done without these teachers. I'd just like to let them know that I'm in High School now and I'm taking most of all the higher level classes. Thank you for all your support attention and conprehension. Mariam Carret writes to you with all the love that my heart posseses. Much Love Teach'
