Principal's Message, May 2021


Dear Johnson Families,

Good afternoon, I hope everyone had a great week and has had the opportunity to enjoy some of this beautiful weather.  It may be hard to believe but we are quickly reaching the end of this unparalleled school year.  We still have some special events planned for our 5th grade students including a Moving Up Ceremony on June 11th.    Information has already been emailed to all of our 5th grade parents with event details. 

Every year we take time to thank all of our wonderful teachers and staff for all of their hard work and dedication.  This year was particularly challenging and I am so proud of all of our staff for their hard work and dedication to making this school year the best in these unmatched circumstances.  In particular, Congratulations to Ms. Crystal Barlow, Johnson’s Outstanding Educator of the Year!

Also, a great big thank you to the PTO and all the parents who helped make teacher appreciation week so special with the wonderful videos of students and all of the contributions made!

Just a reminder, school will be closed for Memorial Day on Monday, May 31st

If you are moving during the summer and will be transferring your child(ren), please contact the main office Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00AM and 4:00PM. If you are moving within the Jackson School District, you will need to sign an Internal Transfer Form and provide proofs of your new residency before your child’s records can be transferred.  If you are moving out of the Jackson School District, you will need to sign a Student Transfer Verification Form.  A transfer card and a copy of your child(ren)’s health records(s) will be provided to register at a new school. The following information is needed to complete the transfer card:  new home address, new school name, and the new school address.
