NJES Recognized as Family Friendly Partnership School by GaDOE

State Superintendent, Richard Woods visited North Jackson Elementary School on September 19, 2019 to recognize the school as one of five “Family Friendly Partnership Schools” in the state of Georgia.

On hand to share the celebration were State Rep. Tommy Benton, State School Board member Kevin Boyd, Superintendent Richard Woods, Principal Jenica Johnson, former Principal Teresa Strickland, counselor Amy Bell, Assistant Principal Dr. Mishea Dean, and Jackson County Schools Superintendent Dr. April Howard.

Representatives of the NJES staff, PTO, ELA program, family engagement team, and community partners, along with staff from the district office, also joined the celebration and tour of the school.

Superintendent Woods celebrated Constitution Week with fourth-graders, giving each of them a pocket edition of the Constitution. He joked with them that it was a “limited edition” since he had added his “John Hancock,” and then challenge them to learn what that meant.

The school tour was led by Dr. Dean and Ms. Bell, who explained the efforts the school has made to remove barriers for families and make the school as inclusive as possible.
