The success of children depends heavily on the school community, parents, and extended community working
together. The benefits of these partnerships are immeasurable. Communication between home and school is regular, two-way, and meaningful. Parents receive weekly updates and/or progress reports from classroom teacher, monthly school calendars, and newsletters. Official and classroom notices are sent home in English and Spanish. Parent conferences are held twice per year with follow-up meetings as needed.
Parents play an integral role in assisting student learning. Parents are provided information regarding how parents can
foster learning at home, give homework assistance, and provide feedback to teachers. School sponsored workshops are
held on a regular basis to assist parents in understanding how students can improve skills, get help when needed, meet
class expectations, and perform well on assessments.
Parents are welcome in the school and their support and assistance are sought. Parents are full partners in decisions
that affect children and families. Open dialogue, both formally and informally, is encouraged through an active School Site Council, English Learner Advisory Committee, District English Learner Advisory Committee, and Parent Teacher Club.
Volunteers at Jackson Heights Elementary School are considered a valuable resource. Please notify your child's teacher if you would like to do volunteer work. Individuals who wish to attend any field trips with their child or work in classrooms will need to complete a screening process. This process may take up to 2 weeks.
Please fill out the attached form and return it to the office along with a copy of your Driver's License.
We do accept donations of $1 to cover the screening process cost. If you have any questions, please call the office at (530) 527-7150.
