Superintendent’s Message

From the Superintendent’s Pen

Dr. Gregory T. Jackson

Superintendent of Ford Heights School District 169

Ford Heights would like to wish all of our students, families, staff and community members a safe and enjoyable holiday. Take advantage of a well-deserved break and refuel for what is to come. I encourage you to slow down and enjoy the holiday break. 

As children grow older, it becomes increasingly hard to find down-time and discuss gratitude. It is a fact that we take many things for granted such as a warm home, a working car, food on the table and caring family and friends…the list goes on. As your family enjoys the holiday together, take the time to remember what you are thankful for and take some time for a random act of kindness to help teach gratitude.  

We are extremely pleased with the hard work and dedication that we have seen from staff and students thus far this year. We look forward to bringing the same momentum into 2023! Best wishes to everyone for a joyous holiday season.

Dr. Gregory T. Jackson, Superintendent of Ford Heights School District #169
