Message from Principal
On behalf of the staff at Natchitoches Junior High-Frankie Ray Jackson School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both, home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. The middle years are a time for growth, challenge, and discovery. At NJH-FRJS, we encourage and prepare students to participate fully, to take calculated risks, to be self-advocates, and to create lasting memories and relationships with peers and staff. I am proud to be the principal of such an exciting and dynamic school.
The foundation for our students’ success is based on the partnership among students, staff, and parents. Active parent participation is essential to our success. Parents can check academic progress regularly via our student progress center and can access information about school events on our website. Teachers provide a nurturing environment in which young adolescents can learn, take risks, and thrive. Student work, in partnership with our parent community, has and will continue to support us to fulfill our school mission. Again, we are looking forward to working with each of you and your child/children this year. We believe that Together Everyone Achieves More. We are one team united for one common purpose – to educate our children. Our TEAM includes students, parents, teachers, and the community!
