Principal's Message

Welcome to Jackson Avenue School!

Jackson Avenue is an exciting place to learn and grow. At Jackson, we value student choice, curiosity, courage and growth! We pride ourselves in giving our 3rd and 4th grade learners opportunities to not only flourish as readers and writers but also set goals, explore their passions, and develop well-rounded skills in art, music, physical education, coding and STEAM.

We also value our home-school partnerships and encourage you to be in communication with your child’s team. Follow us on Twitter @Jackson_Ave to stay up to date on what is happening in our classrooms!

As always, if you have any questions, please call the main office or email me at

Mrs. Shanahan

For Ms. Bodson’s 3rd graders, measurement and snow seemed like the perfect DATA to create a LINE PLOT. Learners plotted their snow measurement in inches while we asked and answered questions about that DATA collection.
