Congratulations Noah Do Rego
Congratulation Noah Do Rego for winning first place in his category on a Global Game-Making Challenge.  There were over 800 entries, representing 70 countries. 

Noah created a game called Plant.  The game starts with oppressors taken over your town.  You have to get to the oppressors, but as you do you notice something is not right.  The game explores the impact of our actions on our world.

He plans to post his game in the near future for all to play.

Please check out his video: Noah Do Rego Bio Video 
His game is currently available for download

January Welcome Back Jays!

Hello A.Y. Jackson Students, Parents, and Guardians,


As you have heard by now, Ottawa students will be returning to in-person learning effective Monday, February 1! On Monday students will attend COHORT A/SUBJECT 1 classes and our classrooms will be open at 9:15 a.m. We are all very excited to be welcoming our students back to A.Y.!  In addition to information provided below, students have already received an individualized message with their Quadmester 3 courses, teachers, and locations  via their email address. If for some reason, students are unsure of their class location Monday morning for Cohort A/Subject 1 the Admin Team will be greeting students and we can provide this information. 


A reminder to students, as we did in the fall, to please use the entry/exit closest to your classroom. We also need students to please bring all textbooks, Chromebooks, and learning items they have borrowed during Quadmester 2 with them to school on the first day of their return.


Our daily timetable will return to our established in-person model. We will resume alternating cohorts with Cohort A attending Subject 1 on Monday, February 1.
