Back to School in Jackson MI
Most Jackson County area schools are back in session this week, and we’d love to see your “first day of school” photos and hear about your family’s back to school adventures!
Share photos with us on Facebook: First Day of School Photos
It’s going to be an interesting and challenging semester as schools and families make the transition from traditional learning methods to a combination of restricted in-person, virtual, and hybrid learning methods.
Let us encourage you to offer lots of grace and exercise lots of patience over the next few months. Few of us have done this before (schools or families), and there are bound to be bumps in the road ahead.
Jackson County will be better for having had the adventure if we can all embrace the ride and enjoy the journey together.
We wish all Jackson area families well as they embark on a new school year!
See Good + Do Good
That’s our challenge to ourselves and to Jackson County. Here is an example of doing good we’ve seen recently…
- We read this week about a new-to-Jackson resident seeing another Jacksonian down on his luck, working hard to make ends meet. The new-to-Jackson resident went out of his way to help the down-on-his-luck Jacksonian with a bag of pop cans to return and an ice-cold Coke to share. Way to Join In Jackson and do good in our community!
- 308 Brass Rail has been partnering with local businesses and individuals to provide “appreciation meals” to frontline heroes in the Jackson community – police departments, healthcare workers, firefighters, and more have been recipients of their catered meals.
Have you seen good happening in Jackson County? We’d love to hear about it and share it with others!
