Students made art and crafts, others played cards, and strategic games. There were lots of outside play options as well.

  • Be a Stingray Star

    Jackson Avenue's school-wide expectations are to Be Scholarly (I think about the choices I am making); Be Trustworthy (I make the same choice when an adult is looking and when they are not); Be Accepting (I am kind to the people around me); and Be Responsible (I know the school rules, I take care of the things around me, and I always do my best). We celebrate these expectations at our weekly Wednesday morning meetings before we go into the classroom. Students wear their Stingray Colors (yellow and black).
