Welcome to the 2018-19 school year at Cascades Elementary School. My name is Marti Kuhn and I am a very proud graduate of Jackson Public Schools. This is my 9th year as Principal at Cascades Elementary. Cascades Elementary School provides a high quality education and engage our students in academic excellence and workforce readiness strategies to ensure they become lifelong learners. We are a small neighborhood school for students in grades kindergarten to second grade.
Better-than-budgeted interest rates and a competitive market paid off for Jackson Public schools in the recent sale of bonds from a proposal voters approved in May. The 2.95-mill proposal passed by 994 votes. Funds will be used for consolidation of buildings, construction of a new school, reopening a vacant building, updating and securing learning spaces, swimming pool replacement, purchase of buses and technology upgrades.
