What's Right in the School District of Janesville

What’s Right in the School District of Janesville (SDJ) is a forum to recognize outstanding performances and achievements by SDJ employees, students and schools. Each week, between now and the end of the school year, SDJ will focus on positive achievements from a specific school.

Wisconsin Title I High Progress Award

Jackson Elementary School students’ performance demonstrates significant improvement over the past year.  To be eligible for this award, a school must be receiving Title I and must: earn a rating of Meeting Expectations, Exceeding Expectations, or Significantly Exceeding Expectations on the WI School Report Card, fall within the top 10% of schools experiencing student growth in reading and mathematics, have a minimal achievement gap or show evidence of reducing gaps between student subgroups and meet test participation, absenteeism and dropout goals.

Great Job Jackson Elementary Students and Staff!

Jackson 3rd grade students in Mrs. MacFarlane’s classroom just completed a poetry unit.  The culminating event featured all third grade students presenting their poetry in front of an audience.  Students did a fantastic job!

4th grade students working with Mrs. Kerrie Tisdale have been working very diligently on a Shakespeare Readers Theatre play!

Hedberg Public Library and Jackson Elementary Team Up!
On February 26th, fifth grade students and Miss Forst teamed up with Mrs. Sharon Grover of the Hedberg Public Library to begin a new journey with books.  Students were invited to join Mrs. Grover and Miss Forst for lunch and to talk about books.  Initially, 8 students expressed an interest in joining this new book club.  When the day came, 16 students showed up and openly discussed what they would like to see in the club.  Jackson’s first book was Queen of the Falls by Chris Van Allsburg.
