Ten contestants took to the platform to compete in the school’s National Geographic Geography Bee last Friday. Selected from grades fourth through seventh, the students answered questions like “Located on the Mississippi River, Saint Paul is the capital of which state?” Daniel Luzardo took third place, leaving seventh graders Bailey Berry and Benjamin Watson to compete in the championship round. Both contestants missed the first of three questions in the final round and answered the second correctly. Benjamin Watson earned first place on the final question, correctly answering that Darién National Park is located in the Central American country of Panama. Congratulations to Daniel, Benjamin, Bailey, and to all of the contestants!
Gifts to the Jackson Academy Annual Fund provide the needed academic support and program enhancements that have become the hallmarks of a JA education.
As Head of School Jack Milne mentioned in his message to campus Monday, Jackson Academy is indeed blessed to have avoided water in the main campus buildings due to flooding.
Valentine’s Day started early and went big at Jackson Academy. Families arrived in the carpool line Thursday morning to find a cast of candy hearts, Alice in Wonderland characters, and even cupid welcoming them to campus with gifts of candy roses and other sweets. The event warmed everyone’s hearts and brightened the cloudy day with the love our teachers and staff members have for our students.
