The Lower School end of year drive-through Friday at Jackson Academy was a shining example of how JA teachers love teaching and cherish their students. The evidence was on the faces of teachers and students as they shared all the affection possible while maintaining social distancing.
Within a moment, it seemed, parents, students, and teachers were operating in an uncharted, oddly constrained environment.

Parents’ cards, emails, and letters of appreciation to faculty and staff share glimpses from inside the thresholds Jackson Academy families. Some teachers say the notes and emails have “carried” them through this time. Read Postcards from Home from parents who’ve given us permission to reprint their notes. Look for more in future Tuesday Raiders.

Instead, students are putting those same skills to use as they sew surgical masks at home.
