Book buddies

Participating in the Book Buddies program at Jackson Academy are (from left, back) Sophie Slade, Anna Ballard Tharp, Bodie Atkins, Graves Haraway; (front) Ainslie Long and Cash Dickson. Throughout the year the sixth-grade students will get to know their first grade buddies while writing and illustrating a book about them that will be printed and given to the first-graders as a keepsake.


We are fortunate to attend a small church with a tight-knit congregation. Our children’s committee hosts a baby shower for each expectant family in our church and invites the entire congregation.
