College: Making It Happen!

We want to invite all 7th and 8th grade students and parents to the annual “College: Making It Happen!” a college information day scheduled for Saturday, April 11, 2015 from 8:00am -1:00pm. This program, intended primarily for 6th through 8th graders and their parents, is designed to convey the importance of early academic preparation and to inform families that a college education is still both affordable and attainable.  The program is free and open to the public.  See your counselor for a field trip form. 


Summary of Event:

Location:                            CSUS Union Ballroom

Date:                                     April 11, 2015

Time:                                    8:00 am to 1:00pm

Transportation:               District Bus will pick up and return to Jackman Middle School

                                                Depart: 7:30 am   Return: 1:30 pm

Promotion Information

The 8th grade Promotion Ceremonies will take place on Thursday, May 28th at 8:00am, 9:00am and 10:00am. Students must be at SJMS by 7:30am for the first promotion, 8:30am for the second promotion and 9:30am for the third promotion.  Students will receive information later about what promotion ceremony they are in. 

All promoting 8th grade students must clear with Counselors, Administration and the Library No Activities List in order to participate in the Promotion Ceremony. NO EXCEPTIONS, NO EXCUSES.  

As we begin to think about promotion, please keep the following in mind.  We request that students dress in appropriate clothing: dresses, dress shirt and slacks, suits or other good school clothes. Overly formal or “revealing” outfits are inappropriate. No strapless or spaghetti strap dresses will be allowed unless worn with a jacket or covering.  

Our goal is to have every student that is academically eligible participate in the Promotion Ceremony and other end of the year activities; however, all students must adhere to the following discipline policy: 

Any more than three (3) days of suspension during the fourth term will result in that student being placed on the “No Activities List” for the remainder of the school year. This action will prevent the student from participating in any remaining end of the year activities including, but not limited to:  the End of Year Dance, 8th Grade Field Trip, Promotion Rehearsal, and the Promotion Ceremony. In addition, students may not have any violation of the Education Code that results in any days of home suspension during the last week of school. 

Please contact either of the vice principals (Mrs. Fuller or Mr. Mora) at 393-0181 if you have any questions about this policy.


This school year will hold many special moments that your student will never forget. These moments will be captured in Samuel Jackman’s 2014-2015 Year Book. The yearbook will be filled with photograph of friends, special events on campus, class activities, clubs, and candid shots of all the activities during the 2014-2015 school year. This years book is soft-covered, 88 pages, with many of the special and happiest times in your student’s life.

You can purchase a year book now for only $25.00. All you need to do is complete an order form, include your check (made out to Samuel Jackman Middle School) or send the cash to school and have your student turn it in to the Student Store. Those students who purchase a year book will be invited to a "Signing Party" on May 26, 2015 during 5th period. At the signing party, students will be able to move around the MP room and have their friends sign their year books, There will be colored pens for sale for $1.00 and we will have red, purple, blue, green, and black.

We also have a few yearbooks left over from last year and they will be available for $10.00 at promotion, along with this years book for $30.00. Don’t forget, both books will be $40.00 at Promotion, on May 29. The books will be available at the display cart near the Bicycle Parking.

History Travelers Club Multicultural Dinner a Success!

A big thanks to the History Travelers Advisers: Mrs. Adams and Mrs. Harmon for a wonderful evening last night.


About 185 people gathered at Common Ground Community Church for a Multicultural Dinner prepared by the parents of the 9 students going to Washington DC in June.   Thanks goes out to Pastor Troy Nichols, Outreach Minister for the church,  who was our contact and his crew who were amazing helpers.   We were served delicious food representing many cultures (Flan, Samosas, Homemade tamales! Pasta, Chicken Palau, Mac & Cheese, and Banana Pudding just to mention a few).  This is the first time in over 20 years that our students have participated in a Washington DC Trip.  Mrs. Adams and one parent will be accompanying the students on their experience of a lifetime.


We also had entertainment representing our diverse Samuel Jackman Middle School community. Our Drill Team preformed three different  drills; two of our Hmong students danced and sung a song in Hmong; our Choir under direction of Mr. Younger sang  "We are Here" by Alicia Keys.  There was also a raffle  for all the participate in, with 12 baskets to bid on.  Many of our community families won baskets consisting of Family Movie Night (Sodas, DVD, Candy and Popcorn), $25 Home Depot gift card in a bucket with candy and  printed duck tape, Star Bucks gift card in a Mug;  plus many others interesting baskets.  $1400.00 was raised for the trip!

Thanks to the Staff Members and Mr. Anderson, our principal, for coming out in support of the History Travelers and all the staff who purchased tickets or donated money for the trip
