S.U.N. Schools offer fun after school classes for you, your parents, and your community. S.U.N. stands for Schools Uniting Neighborhoods. The goal of the S.U.N. School is to create a community hub at Jackson Middle School where parents, neighbors, teachers, and students all join in creative learning opportunities. There are three sessions or terms of classes during the school year.
Classes: Some of the past classes offered at Jackson include Homework Club, Mentoring, Girls' Group, Tae Kwon Do, Glass Fusion, Drumming, AKA Science, Yoga, Cooking, Sports, Chess, Cartooning, and more! We offer adult classes too! Let us know if you have a particular interest and we can try to set up classes based on your interests!
Services: Talk to S.U.N. School about referrals for rental assistance, food boxes, and other basic needs.
You can reach the Jackson S.U.N. Community School Coordinator, Ethan Erickson, at firstname.lastname@example.org, (503) 916-6016 or by stopping by the S.U.N. Community room, located in room D147 (near the cafeteria) at Jackson. We will also need parents and community members to teach classes and to volunteer in our homework club. Our non-profit lead agency is Neighborhood House.
One thing that you can do early on is let us know your ideas for S.U.N. classes. If you have an idea for a class or activity that you would like to see offered here at Jackson, please stop by the S.U.N. room and let your S.U.N. Coordinator know.
