    SUN (Schools Uniting Neighborhoods) Schools offer fun after-school classes for students, parents, and the community. The goal of the SUN School is to create a community hub at Jackson Middle School where parents, neighbors, teachers, and students all join in creative learning opportunities.  SUN School also supports the whole family by helping with school supplies, food, and social services.

    There are three terms of after school activities during the school year: Fall, Winter, and Spring. SUN classes run Monday through Thursday. The term dates are as follows:

    Fall:  10/17/19 - 12/12/19

    Winter:  1/13/19 - 3/5/19

    Spring:  4/6/19 - 5/28/19

    What type of after-school classes and services are offered through SUN School?

    Classes: Some of the past classes offered at Jackson include Homework Club, Cooking, Basketball, Fun Fitness, Chess Club, Coding, and more! The school play and musical are both run through SUN. We offer adult classes too! We try to respond to the interests of the students and the community; let us know if you'd like to take a class on something and we will do our best to offer it!

    Services: Talk to SUN School about referrals for rental assistance, food boxes, and other basic needs. We have school supplies, backpacks, jackets, and many other resources to support Jackson students and members of the community.
