The story on Westside District 11 schools with marquees in the Westside Pioneer Dec. 16 should have mentioned Jackson Elementary has a marquee, too. Not only that, it is a marquee known for being consistently informative. According to Jackson Principal Anne Dancy, she holds regular meetings with staff to talk about what should go on the sign, and building custodian Don Oldes changes out the board's messages every month (more frequently, if necessary). Although the school has a newsletter, the marquee, near the intersection of Holland Park Boulevard and Edwinstowe Avenue, is also important to communicating school information to the public, Dancy said. The Jackson sign was a gift from the PTA about 10 years ago.
