STAR House recognized for enriching community - Local leaders show support for afterschool programs
The STAR House was honored Oct. 21 for its impact on Roswell’s youth during an open house event at the newly-renovated Esther Jackson Elementary School. It was one of only three schools chosen this year by the Georgia Statewide Afterschool Network in recognition of their efforts.
Almost 200 children in the Roswell community participate in the STAR House Foundation’s afterschool educational program for at-risk youth. The foundation seeks to empower these students for academic and personal success through homework assistance, mentoring and fun and educational activities.
“It is important for us to remember that teachers, parents and the community at large share the responsibility of lighting that path for students to get that high school diploma and be college and career ready,” said Jennifer Cassidy, principal at Esther Jackson Elementary School. “When our partners at STAR House come in and work with our students every day, we’re not only working on academic skills. We’re working on social growth. We’re working on emotional growth. We’re working on interpersonal skills. We’re working on goal-setting. All the things that we’re doing to help us be a better citizen and better prepare to be a contributor to the community.”

Esther Jackson's New House Trophy!
This year all students have been placed in a house. The house names are a positive character trait in English and Latin and are tied to a color.
Students can earn points for their house throughout the month by following the rules and being a good role model. At the end of each month, the house points are tallied, and a winner is declared! The winning team is awarded the House Trophy and the cafeteria is decorated in their house color for the month.
We welcome visitors and volunteers to our school! Many procedures have been put into place by our school district to ensure the safety of all students when a visitor or volunteer is on campus. Sometimes these processes can seem cumbersome, but we appreciate your patience in helping us maintain our number one focus; the safety of our children!
