MESA FINALS WINNERS!! Congrats!!
MESA Finals - Isabella Cano, 1st Place - Mousetrap Car Design
Donovan Andrade and Jose Friars - 2nd Place - Balsawood Glider
In late March, 30 students from Jackson competed in the Preliminary Competition at CSULB. For the preliminaries, students that are associated with MESA at CSULB compete against each other by grade levels in several areas of engineering, there were approximately 600 students who competed that day. Three of our sixth graders won first place in three categories, Isabella Cano won first place in design and first place in speed for her mousetrap car. Donovan Andrade and Jose Frias won first place as a team with their Balsawood Glider. Winning first place in the competition automatically qualifies you for the Regional Competition.
Last weekend the Regional Competition was held at UCLA. Students who placed first in their category during their preliminaries met at UCLA to compete against each other. There were students from each of the MESA college sites in our area, CSULB, CSULA, USC, and UCLA. At the Regiional Competition Isabella Cano won first place again for her Mousetrap Car design and only lost on speed by tenths of a second. Donovan Andrade and Jose Frias won third place with their Balsawood Glider. They were part of a great group of competitors from Paramount Unified School District.

4th-5th GRADE SCIENCE FIELD TRIP
This year our Leona Jackson fourth and fifth grade Knights enjoyed an awesome field trip to the California Science Center. The classes were able to explore the different world ecosystems. For example, students were able to see some awesome sea life, fish, eel, and even tiger sharks. After seeing all the cool stuff inside of the Science Center, our Jackson Knights were lucky enough to be able to see The Space Shuttle Endeavour! It was huge, and very exciting to be able to see in real life!
Below is a slideshow of some of the pictures taken during the field trip.

2016 AVID FIELD TRIP TO CSUF
After months of hard work, the Jackson MESA Team successfully competed at the MESA Preliminary Competition at CSULB. Although the competition was tough, our team came away with two gold medals and a 1st Place Ribbon. This is a great accomplishment as our Jackson Knights were competing with schools not only in the Paramount Unified School District, but also schools in Bellflower, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Santa Fe Springs, and Wilmington.
Congratulations to all our MESA Knights. In addition, lets wish Donovan Andrade, Jose Frias, and Isabella Cano luck as they head to the Regional Finals at UCLA this upcoming April 23rd, 2016.

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and was able to relax and spend some quality time with their family and friends.
As we move toward the end of the first semester, I encourage all students to work towards their personal best. If you are not achieving to your full potential, it is a good time to rethink your past actions and set goals to improve your efforts in the second half of the school year. The following are some tips to help increase student achievement:
Parents are encouraged to become partners in their child’s education as well. Check in with your child daily and find out what they learned each day and what they need to do each night. Have your child demonstrate their understanding by having them explain how they solved a problem or where they found their evidence. Parents of our 6-8 students can also get involved by continuously checking Parent Vue, a program that provides allows you to communicate with teachers, as well as monitor student grades and attendance online. Please call the office if you have not received this information or are having trouble signing in. It is our hope that the ParentVue will improve student achievement by increasing collaboration with parents.
Here are just a few announcements as we begin a new week...a new month...and a new year:
As always, thank you for your continued support!
