On Thursday, November 13th Jackson County High School welcomed several visitors. Students from Maplewood High School, Clay County High School, Monterey High School, and Pickett County High School came and spent time with the students at JCHS. The Move To Stand Club, which is an anti-bullying club paired their students up with students from all of the other high school and they did many different activities to help the students better understand others of different backgrounds. The students also participated in a service project to help members of our local communities during the Thanksgiving holidays. Students at JCHS have been bringing food for a week for the clubs to divide and take to the needy of their respected communities. This day was a huge success and we greatly appreciate all of the attending schools and the Move to Stand club for organizing this event.
Attention all students, faculty, alumni, and community members.

Jackson County High School will be producing a newsletter that can be sent out to anyone interested. Please follow the following link to sign up and receive new information about JCHS.
