“College Knowledge Fridays”

In order to promote college and career readiness, the Knights will be implementing “College Knowledge Fridays”. Each week during morning announcements, one of our student announcers will highlight a college on display from one of our classrooms.

College Knowledge for The University of California, Berkeley:




The University of California, Berkeley, also known as Cal, is located in Berkeley, California just across the bay from San Francisco.  Cal was the first university in the UC system and is consistently ranked as the #1 public university in the country.  Berkeley is best known for its rigorous academic programs in science and its record number of Nobel Laureate professors and alumni.  Cal Bears are also world-class athletes.  This summer, 50 current and former Bears participated in the Rio Olympics. Among its notable alumni are Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple, actors John Cho and Chris Pine, and our very own Mrs. Barrera, Jackson ELA coach.

Leona Jackson Middle School was happy to welcome the mayor of Paramount, Daryl Hofmeyer, PUSD Supt of Schools, Ruth Perez, and PUSD Board President, Tony Pena.  They were here to present Mr. Sierra and his team with a lunch for their efforts in raising over $10,000 in the recent PEP Scholarship Fundraiser.  Money collected goes to help Paramount High School seniors toward scholarship for colleges. Mr. Sierra and his team were the top money collectors for our school in a very spirited and fun March Madness competition between the teachers and their classrooms.

The First Week of School


Dear Parents/Guardians, Students, and Community Members,


Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! It continues to be an honor and privilege to serve as the principal of Leona Jackson School. I hope you have enjoyed your summer break spending time with your loved ones and creating memories to last a lifetime.


I am looking forward to our continued partnership to ensure our children receive a quality education that prepares them to be life-long learners, problem solvers, and innovative thinkers. In addition to academics, one of our primary goals is to ensure students feel safe and connected to our school. We ask that you encourage your child to get involved and participate in the many activities we will have available this year. Knowing that parent involvement is critical in the educational process, we hope that you will join us throughout the year and take an active role in your child’s education.  There will be many opportunities for you to get involved, such as PTSA, School Site Council (SSC), English Learners Advisory Council (ELAC), parent/teacher meetings, monthly parent workshops, and school-wide celebrations. Our goal is to work closely with all stakeholders in order to best meet the needs of each and every child.   


My staff and I look forward to working with you as the year progresses. We appreciate your support and look forward to an exciting new school year! Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions and/or concerns.

Jackson's New Field


It is our great pleasure to introduce you to our new FieldTurf field. This high performance artificial turf system is designed to deliver maximum performance and playability to our community. The addition of the FieldTurf field will allow us to reduce water usage and drastically increase the available playable hours for our athletes. Per the manufacturer, long term studies have also shown that this high quality FieldTurf system can help reduce player injuries relative to natural grass. We are excited to have this new surface and know that it will serve our community well for the years to come. This field is our field, so we hope that all field users treat the field with the utmost respect and care by following the rules below.


  • NO Food
  • NO Sunflower Seeds
  • NO Tobacco Products
  • NO Chewing Gum
  • NO Smoking
  • NO Driving Stakes


In addition, flavored and/or colored drinks will NOT be allowed on campus. Students may only bring water to school.


Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
