Every year at our Giving Gala, we work together with Jackson’s faculty and staff to identify one key need for our school. This need is featured at our live auction and collectively funded by anyone who can participate – at any level. For many of us, this is our favorite part of the Giving Gala because it truly showcases what we can do when we all come together to give our kids the very best!
This year, we have identified TenMarks math software as our Fund-A-Need item. This software has been piloted by two of our classes this year and the results were so positive, we want ALL of our kids (grades 1-5) to have access to the program. TenMarks is a math software program that kids can use in class, during their computer lab time or at home. It is designed to help them deepen their understanding of every math standard while helping them adjust to new computerized testing formats. It’s easy to use, allows kids to correct their own work and rewards them with certificates and games.
