We Are Jackson! Believe! Achieve! Succeed!

Jackson Elementary School LogoJackson 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 PTO seeks to provide financial support to the students and staff at Jackson Elementary throughout the school year and in the foreseeable future. Your support is invaluable to us and thoroughly appreciated by all of the Jackson Elementary community.

We sincerely thank you for any contribution you can make. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law and go directly to Jackson Elementary. No administrative fees are deducted from any donation. Together we know we can succeed and meet our vision to leap like champions!

The Woolf Pack Fund

Did you know that ONE IN FIVE CHILDREN in Nebraska and western Iowa under the age of 18 IS AT RISK FOR HUNGER?
(Food Bank of the Heartland)

The Woolf Pack Fund, named for its founder, has made its mission to provide supplemental food to the youth in need in our community. Our vision is to help eliminate hunger and close the meal gap.

The Woolf Pack Fund provides support to students at three Omaha Public Schools: Western Hills Elementary, Benson West Elementary and Walnut Hill Elementary. Based off of 2021 data, 78% (261 students), 85% (381 students) and 93% (372 students) of children enrolled, respectively, qualify for free and reduced lunch. The need for supplemental food has greatly increased due to COVID.

“Like many North Omaha families, Benson West families were intensely hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many families were forced out of work and unable to provide for their children,” said Megan Seeley, the school social worker. “With the help from the backpack program, this will alleviate some stressors and help to bridge the gap between meals for our students and families.”

The program runs from September through May and is geared to target young children with limited parental supervision at home. Bags will be packed weekly by volunteers and taken to the schools for the teachers to place into the student’s backpacks on Friday. The bags will contain 2 shelf stable milks, a fruit cup, a juice box, 2 cereals and 2 entrees.

The Woolf Pack Fund received grants from The Omaha Community Foundation, HDR and The City of Omaha totaling just under $15,000! At the end of the 2021-2022 school year, the Woolf Pack Fund will have packed and delivered 2,135 food bags.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

We are currently seeking donations to help fund the 2022-2023 school year. The cost of food and bags to provide supplemental food to 1 student for the entire school year is $235.00.

Thank you!!
