Jackson Middle School PTA Ongoing Fund Drive

Our children deserve the best education possible, so please donate today. The PTA supports the Bernstein Artful Learning Program, field trip scholarships, classroom supplies, technology and Culture Day. You can donate easily online by clicking on the campaign specific Paypal buttons below. Using Paypal does not require an account. Jackson Middle School PTA is a tax exempt organization and 100% of your contribution is tax deductible.

Bernstein Artful Learning

Please contribute to our annual Bernstein Artful Learning campaign; Jackson Middle School PTA’s commitment to this unique learning model is $25,000. At Jackson Middle School a Bernstein unit might:

  • Utilize a local author/illustrator to help students apply their knowledge of a particular animal to produce an original book
  • Require students to create a dance based on geometric terminology with the help and instruction of a local dancer or troupe
  • Ask students to create a periodic table of their own design that shows their understanding of the periodic table of elements
  • Perform an original monologue, piece of music, or scene from a selection of literature
  • Apply their knowledge of the dynamic earth to a mosaic creation of their own design
  • Create a work of art that reflects an understanding of a particular technique or culture




Full Chrome Jackson Fund Drive

This campaign is Jackson Middle School PTA’s largest fundraising initiative ever and the remaining goal amount $40,000.  Only four more Chromebook carts and each Language Arts teacher will have full access to a designated complete classroom set.  We hope to conclude this multi-year initiative this year with your support.





General Fund Drive

Jackson Middle School’s PTA Annual General Fund provides several support programs for JMS students including Classroom Support, Cultural Day, Library Grants, Technological Systems, Teacher Appreciation Events and MUCH more!  Each year we need about $25,000 to fulfill school support funding.
