Help Keep Our Students Physically Fit!

Walter Jackson Elementary School believes in the educational and physical achievement of every student! To help our PE teacher, Mrs. Cater, reach her goals of developing strong and intelligent students, our school participates in the Box Tops for Education program. This program awards Mrs. Cater money for her PE program which she uses to buy equipment to keep our young Jaguars in shape. In the past, families had to cut off box tops from participating products. Now, you can download an app, scan your store receipts, and the app will find participating products for you.
