NEWS & EVENTS:

SCHOOL SUPPLIES AND CLASSROOM ENRICHMENT MATERIALS

2017-18 School Year
Each child needs to purchase both School Supplies & Classroom Enrichment Materials for the upcoming 2017-18 school year. This process is handled differently at each campus.

Click HERE to be directed to the WTJ website for updated information on purchasing school supplies. An overview of the process is below:
Kindergarten & 1st Grade:
The PTA purchases ALL School Supplies & Classroom Enrichment Materials for K & 1 students, for $120 per child. All you have to do is pay once and be done! Everything will be delivered to their classroom before the first day of school.
2nd-5th Grade:
Two separate payment steps required:
(1) Pay for Classroom Enrichment Materials ($80/child) and
(2) Purchase School Supplies (cost varies by grade).

The PTA uses the $80/child fee to purchase the Classroom Enrichment Materials in bulk for the Main Campus students, while parents are in charge of purchasing School Supplies separately. There are two options for purchasing school supplies: (a) order a pre-packaged, customized supply kit online that will be mailed to your home or (b) shop on your own to purchase the specific items on the supply list.

ONLINE PAYMENTS FOR FIELD TRIPS : 

This year, the PTA has again elected to enroll Jackson into the Atlanta Public Schools Online School Payments (OSP) portal. The OSP is provided to facilitate payment for school fees for a variety of products and services—including Field Trips and other pass through expenses. The system is currently offered to a select number of schools, including Jackson and Morris Brandon. We believe this system will be a convenience and benefit to parents, teachers and administrators. Instructions can be found HERE. If you have any questions, please contact the Main Office or email Astrid Moyer at amoyer@atlanta.k12.ga.us.  Access the portal at http://osp.osmsinc.com/atlanta/.
