Student Clubs & Organizations
At Jackson Keller Elementary, our students have many opportunities to learn in the classroom, throughout the school day, and after school as well.
Our students are encouraged to meet expectations by following the CHAMPS learning strategies.
Conversation: Can students talk to each other during this activity?
Help: How do students get the teacher's attention and their questions answered?
Activity: What is the task/objective? What is the end product?
Movement: Can students move about during this activity?
Participation: How do students show they are fully participating? What does work behavior look/sound like?
Success: When students meet CHAMPS expectations, they will be successful!

Every year student groups on campus put on events including weekly lectures, campus-wide dances, concerts, coffee house performances, and much more. Beyond that, Wheaton has unique traditions, such as the senior bench, a bench that is fought over by the seniors and juniors, that have been around for decades.
Kids' Involvement Network
KIN begins as soon as school dismisses. The schedule consists of a healthy snack, socialization, and recreational activities such as recess, group sports, and health and wellness programming. Homework time is a main focus of our programs and is structured to assist students in a way that will benefit all learning styles. Enrichment activities are conducted every day to enhance learning. KIN closes at 6:30 p.m. at every site.
Annual Events & Traditions
Our school, in association with SAPD, hosts a 30 minute informative program about bike safety and what a bike rodeo consists of then comes back out to evaluate and score the participants in the safety and skills portions of the bike rodeo. (See attached media link)
Bicycle rodeos are a fun way to introduce and educate children to bicycle safety skills. Bike rodeos teach children the importance of seeing, being seen, and remaining in control of the nike at all times. This is accomplished through bicycle handling drills and activities.
- Educate all road users of all ages and abilities of their rules, rights, and responsibilities.
- Encourage bicycling as a form of transportation and exercise.
- Consistently Enforce laws of the road.
The sponsor will give flyers to the students to take home to their parents a week before the bike rodeo.
Red Ribbon Week
What Is Red Ribbon Week?
Red Ribbon Week serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. NEISD schools participate in the Red Ribbon Campaign.
The National Family Partnership organized the first Nationwide Red Ribbon Campaign®. Since its beginning in 1985, the Red Ribbon has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. In response to the murder of DEA Agent Enrique Camarena, angered parents and youth in communities across the country began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise awareness of the killing and destruction cause by drugs in America.
In 1988, NFP sponsored the first National Red Ribbon Week® celebration. Since that time, the campaign has reached millions of U.S. children and families.
The mission is to help kids stay drug free and support healthy drug-free kids.
