Jackson Elementary is located at 620 South 31st Street in Omaha
. Our school is made up of a diverse population of 235 learners from prekindergarten through sixth grade. We are small but mighty! We are also uniquely positioned to serve as the only fully Dual Language School in all of Nebraska beginning in 2018. The Dual Language Program provides students with daily instruction in both English and Spanish. Our excellent and committed staff strives to meet the needs of all learners by providing rigorous and differentiated instruction. With the support of Special Education Services, English as a Second Language, and Paraprofessionals, we empower our students to put forth their best effort so they can meet their academic, social, and personal goals.
The majority of our students, 90%, qualify for free or reduced lunch. Despite the academic challenges often linked with known economic barriers, our students learn all subjects in two languages, which is no small task at any age or income level. In short, they rock! Go, Jaguars, go!
Jackson Elementary does not have a Parent Teacher Organization. We are dependent upon our community for assistance. To help our bright young learners meet their goals, it is critical we provide them with the technology and resources currently and financially out of our reach. As we educate Nebraska's future bilingual workforce, it is our dream and our goal to support their language and literacy development with an updated state of the art library outfitted with the digital learning tools of the 21st Century.
Your generous gift to Jackson Elementary will:
- Transform our library into a welcoming environment with new furniture and storage to make the most of our space.
- Assist the library with the capacity for a computer lab to serve an entire classroom at a time!
- Upgrade and introduce technology and Internet access to students who do not otherwise have digital access.
Your support is invaluable to us and thoroughly appreciated by all of the Jackson Elementary community.
