Greetings Jackson-Reed Community,
Last week included school activities and events that represented the best of Jackson-Reed and reminded us of why our school is so special. Thanks to everyone who attended our Back-to-School Night program on Thursday. I hope those who participated in the event enjoyed meeting our teachers and staff members as much as I enjoyed conversing with many of you as you navigated our campus. Please join me in thanking Mr. Minsker, Assistant Principal, for his time and effort in organizing this event.
In addition to Back-to-School Night last week, we had our Welcome Back to School Pep Rally. This Student Government Association (SGA) planned event resulted in our entire student body coming together to show their school spirit, cheering on our sports teams, and rooting for their classmates in a relay race. It was great to see our students demonstrate our R.O.A.R. values throughout the event and members of our SGA showing an example of active citizenship.
We also kicked off Hispanic Heritage Month last week, to celebrate and honor the history and contributions made by the Hispanic and Latinx community. Our Hispanic Heritage Month committee members planned events for students from September 15th – October 15th. We are grateful for their commitment to growing our Tigers’ knowledge and understanding of the Latinx and Hispanic culture, and for the commitment all members of our Faculty and Staff have in supporting our students.
