Support EJ's Pennies for Patients Drive
Through February 1, Esther Jackson is participating in Pennies for Patients to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Students recently brought home a collection box to hold pennies and other loose change they collect. Students should bring the boxes back daily or weekly to add their change to the large box in their classroom.
The school-wide goal is to collect $750. The class that raises the most money will receive a free lunch from Olive Garden. In addition, students can receive various incentives for the money they collect.
Donations can also be accepted online. Check for more information about incentives and online donations in the parent letter that was sent home with students. You may also donate at our school’s online donation page.
Parents, we really need your help.
In my November Parent Letter, I included information on our 2018 CCRPI score and School Climate Rating. It is now time to complete the annual Georgia Parent Survey for this year. This important survey is utilized as part of the calculation for Esther Jackson's school climate rating, which is reported with our CCRPI scores. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphones or tablet. Survey responses are anonymous and are submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.
When you click the link, there will be an option for both English and Spanish. Choose Fulton County from the first drop down and then you will have to choose JACKSON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. I know this may be confusing; however, this is how the state lists our school.
Please click here for the link to begin this quick survey. If you receive an error message, please do not get discouraged and try again later. In order to receive credit on CCRPI, we need at least 75% participation from our community. We would really appreciate your feedback so that our school is reflected accurately.
Visitor and Volunteer Information
As you know, Fulton County Schools believes in a safe and nurturing environment for all students and staff. All schools are equipped with a visitor management system called "Raptor." Visitors register in the building at the time of arrival, and their information is checked against state/national sex offender databases as well as local school police databases. Please have your identification available when registering for the first time. Please be sure to sign in using the Raptor system located in the lobby.
All school volunteers will need to be trained in our Child Abuse Reporting Protocol prior to volunteering at EJES. To complete the online training, please visit our web-site at www.estherjackson.org. Click on the Parent tab and then click on the Volunteering link. This process takes 48 hours to process, so please complete at least 48 hours ahead of your volunteer time. Your ID will be required the first time you volunteer.
