Jackson Avenue Elementary School, in partnership with the
community, will provide all students with a rigorous education,
including problem solving, character building and 21st century skills,
to successfully prepare them for roles as productive citizens.
Result of Collaboration with Kaiser Permanente and Campus Catering
On June 10, 2015, the Jackson Avenue Elementary School community - including students, teachers, administrators, parents and staff - all gathered in the multi purpose room for a fun filled ceremony. Tricia Barnes of USDA presented Principal Shari Johnston with the Healthier US Schools Challenge Bronze Award. Barbara Lee, Director of campus catering also received a special award from the USDA for her commitment and dedication as Director of Campus Catering. Both Principal Johnston and Director Lee were honored with a Certificate of Congressional Recognition from Congressman Eric Swalwell. Trustee Anne White, Superintendent Kelly Bowers and members of her Cabinet were all present. The ceremony featured student performances and an interactive dance in which everyone (including guests!) participated. Congratulations to Jackson Avenue Elementary!
Jackson Avenue Elementary School was awarded the Healthy Active Stingrays grant from Kaiser Permanente for the 2013/14 school. As a result of this grant, they were able to hire a Health and Wellness Coordinator to facilitate a running club before school and after school, conduct cooking classes for students and their parents, and install a hydration station. These programs combined with Livermore’s health conscious Campus Catering Department, laid the foundation for this nationally recognized award; the Healthier US Schools Challenge.
