Jackson Pathways Announcements

  • Good Evening Vikings,

    This is Mr. Lewis with your weekly announcements. Thank you to all of our Viking parents/guardians who attended parent teacher conferences that were held last Thursday. We are halfway through our second trimester that ends on March 4. If your child is in need of additional support for his or her classwork, we have after school tutoring available Monday- Thursday from 2:30-4:00. Please reach out to the Pathways office for more information.

    At Jackson High School and Jackson Pathways High School we have a variety of resources and opportunities for our students in addition to our traditional sports teams. Do you have a student who loves gaming? We have an Esports team and state of the Art gaming room for those who are competitive gamers. How about a student who needs that extra support? AVID students are taught to articulate what they don’t understand and learn how to seek out the resources they need. By learning critical thinking, inquiry, and self-advocacy, students are empowered to own their learning. Our Success Academy focuses on creating a collective consciousness amongst historically marginalized groups of male students as it relates to their civic duty to themselves and their families and communities , while defining varied aspects of manhood and the role a man plays in contributing to his own evolution, the good of his family and up building of his community, our Most Teens Don’t group keeps are students grounded with facts about the great things that our teens around the county are doing to combat peer pressure and drug use among their peers. We have also recently partnered with the University of Michigan and have a college advisor housed in our building this year to assist students with their needs for college preparations in addition to the College advisor from College and Career Access Center. Last but not least, we have added a social worker who is now working diligently to ensure that all students are able to utilize his services when they have a need for that support.


    Masks are required for all students, staff, and visitors while inside of our building. Please remind your young person of the proper way to wear a mask as it is important. If your child is not feeling well, is awaiting a COVID-19 test result, is symptomatic, and/or is in close contact with a positive individual….PLEASE KEEP THEM HOME.

    If your student is not part of an athletic team, a club, or the after school program he or she will need to depart the building by 2:30 p.m. Please contact your child’s respective grade office if there is an extenuating circumstance.

    The Jackson County Health Department will host another vaccine clinic at Jackson High School on Thursday, January 27, 2022 from 2:30- 4:00 p.m. in the Welcome Center.

    Good luck to our athletes who will be competing this week. Let’s get that Viking Victory!

    Good evening Pathways families this is Mr. Lewis with your weekly announcements. The new trimester is well underway and we are hopeful that you have a renewed sense of success. Please take some time to look over your grades in powerschool and take note of what you need to do to remain on track to graduate.

    To that end, We believe that what you pay attention to is what you learn. We are not allowing cell phones or headphones during instructional time. A student can not learn content and pay attention to their phones. Your students' teachers have policies to limit the distraction. Please have a conversation about using their phone during socially constructed times like lunch or between classes and not while they are participating in the process of learning.

    After School Tutoring will resume tomorrow and be held from 2:30- 4:00 p.m. Sessions will be held Monday- Thursday. Students with the last names that begin with A-K he/she should report to room 207. Students with the last name L-Z should report to room 205. Students need to report to class by 2:30 p.m. and no later or they will be referred to Mr. Coffie and need to be picked up.

    Our JHS Viking community will continue our yearly tradition of giving back to the community. Again in lieu of the previously known Thanksgiving Giving, we will host our second annual Vikings Giving from November 30- December 16. These donations will not only go to help feed those in our community but also to assist with many other needs. If you would like to make a donation to help those in need in our community, please use our online payment portal and note that the donation is for Vikings Giving.

    This Tuesday and Thursday, December 7th and 9th, there will be a holiday band concert at 7pm in the auditorium. We hope to see you and your family come out and support our JHS bands!
