Dear Jackson Davis Families,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! Last school year our theme was Be the Change. In partnership with our PTA and some community partners we were able to use this theme to extend our learning outside of our own classrooms. This theme was loved by so many that we are keeping the theme for the 19-20 school year! We will continue to provide engaging learning opportunities inside and outside of our classrooms. Our student expectations of Be Safe, Be Respectful and Be Ready to Learn will help us to continue to provide a positive learning environment for all students. Students will continue to learn that being their best and doing their best is always important, no matter how difficult the challenge.

We will use the four pillars of the deeper learning model to guide our work this year:

  • Learning is any time, any where
  • Learning is authentic and connected
  • Learning is student owned
  • Learning is community supported

It is our hope that your students will feel challenged academically, learn how to navigate their challenging worlds, serve their greater JDES community and realize the importance of the academic tasks they are learning. For more information about the Henrico Learner Profile that will guide our work, please visit

We are so fortunate to have a strong team of teachers and staff members who have high expectations for student success while balancing that with the needs of all students. We believe in a strong academic focus but balance that with the need for students to play, collaborate, problem solve and create. Family members are a key to our success as a school. We can’t do it without you! Together we can help all children to learn and grow as individuals and strong members of our community. We hope to see many of you involved in our school learning community this year. We are thankful to have a strong PTA partnership. They not only support us with 100% of their profits but they work collaboratively with us as a school to plan enriching activities that support our entire community. We hope that you will consider joining and supporting the PTA through their events throughout the year.

We have an exciting year ahead of us! I encourage each family to set some goals for the year and talk about what you hope to accomplish this school year. I hope that each of you will have a great year filled with fun and learning! If you ever have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher or myself.

Sincerely, Mrs. Bonner
