I would like to take this time to introduce myself and tell you all how excited I am to join the Page Jackson team!! Here is a little information about me, but I also have an open door policy so if you would like to meet me in person, please feel free to come in when I start on February 6th. I truly believe that partnerships between school and community are critical in student success.
My name is Nicole Shaffer, and I was born and raised in Manassas, VA although I do have WV roots from my mother, who was born and raised in Beckley, WV. I have been in education for 18 years, 12 as a teacher and 6 as an administrator. I was assistant principal at Wildwood Middle School for a year and a half and was the principal at Blue Ridge Primary for 6 years. Currently, I work as the instructional data analyst and high school coordinator at the JCS BOE. I have been married to my husband Steven for 12 years. He works at Bank of Charles Town here in Charles Town, and we have one son, Emerson who is 9 years old in third grade at Inwood Primary. He made the transition from Blue Ridge to Inwood this year as it made it easier for us to monitor his recently diagnosed Type I diabetes. I love working with children, and have a passion for instructional leadership. I have a lot of energy and enthusiasm for my profession and am so excited to share the educational journey with you and your child.

Some of Mrs. Grinnan's First Grade Class are having a blast constructing a machine of gears in our new Science Lab.
The Science Lab features many of the latest STEM products where the students can experiment with simple machines, pulleys and levers, lifecycles of insects, soda bottle science, programmable robot mice, microscopes, scales, stethescopes, magnets, and so much more. We plan on posting more of our student's scientific creations so keep checking back for updates!
PANDA PIT STOP SHOP
Our Panda Pit Stop Shop has been quite busy this year with students cashing in their panda paws for outstanding attendance and behavior. Because of so many deserving students receiving these rewards, our shop is in need of being restocked. If you would like to donate any new or gently used toys to Page Jackson, please send them in with your child or drop them off in the office. These donations are greatly appreciated and help us with the very important job of rewarding our students!
We would also like to thank our Panda Pit Stop Shop Volunteers for their loyal participation in handling our store!!
