Vision Screening

There will be a vision screening for 9th graders on October 10th. Vision screenings are administered for free to school-age children in grades 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9, or in conjunction with driver training classes. 10-15% of students are flagged for further follow-up by an optometrist.

Community Engagement Events

Meet with Malmquist (MwM) and Coffee & Conversation (C&C) are opportunities to meet with school leadership in an informal environment to discuss the Jackson Preparatory & Early College program for the purpose of reaching a deeper understanding of the program and help families access the full potential of the JPEC opportunity. We will alternate hosting the events between the two buildings to provide opportunities for our parents to participate. We welcome both your participation and feedback.

Our first Coffee & Conversation is scheduled for Thursday, October 10th from 8-8:45 am at Justin Whiting Hall in room 158. Topic: SAT Prep and Impact

Our Fall Community Forum has been scheduled for Monday, October 14th from 6:15 - 7:45 pm at the Jackson District Library Carnegie Branch in the auditorium. The meeting will be an opportunity for parents to discuss strengths and opportunities for the JPEC Community with District Leadership. Topics include: EF Tour travel opportunities, Schoology Update, and the Turkey Bowl.

Please join us for Schology information sessions to learn how to understand the parent dashboard, link student accounts, and engage in your student’s education via Schoology. For more information and dates: https://www.jacksonpec.org/Core/News/Article/1182
