PTO President: Kjersta Hoffman
My name is Kjersta Hoffman. This is my first year as President of the PTO at Jackson. I was Vice President for almost two years and helped run the fall fundraiser the year before that. I have two daughters that attend Jackson. Kaelyn is in fifth grade with Mrs. Kay and Naia is in first grade with Mrs. Balk. We love our school and the staff. I feel very fortunate to be involved in our PTO. We have a great group who are committed to doing all we can for our school, all the staff, and students. I have a degree in social work and worked in that field for ten years. Now I run an in-home child care and love it! I am super excited about the school year and my new position and also a little nervous. I hope to connect with as many of you as I can at school or our events.
