    Velma Jackson High School 2020 - 2021 School Year 


    Greetings Students and Parents!

    Well, we have almost completed another year here at Falcon Nation.  To our 2021 Graduates, I would like to say Congratulations to each of you, and job well done!!  It has to feel great to know you have done what it takes to walk that aisle and receive a priceless piece of paper known as your high school diploma.  This is just the first necessary step to go on and achieve bigger and greater things.

    I wish each of you the best of luck.  Your journey is just beginning.  Start off in the right direction, and no matter what, don't let anyone, or anything deter you from reaching your goals.  When you have made it, and success is in the palm of your hands, remember me, and place a little of that success in the palm of my hands!!

    Congratulations, and may God bless you forever!!


    Ms. M. Williams,

    Your Favorite Teacher 




    To the Velma Jackson Family of 2020 - 2021, my name is Monica R. Williams.  This is only my second year here at VJ, but I am proud to be a part of the Falcon Family.  I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to those students who will be attending my classes this year, as well as your parents.  I will be teaching Journalism, Creative Writing, and MS Writers.  I am Editor of the School Newsletter, as well as the Yearbook Advisor.  Although things will look and operate quite differently than what we are all used to, I still am anticipating a great and successful school year.  I look forward to aiding my students to the best of my ability, and helping them to continue to achieve success under these unconditional circumstances.  

    Speaking directly to my students, I want you to come to school with your mind set on having a productive and progressive school year.  I am going to do all I can to keep and maintain your safety & health in my room (201) as we work towards your educational needs, and guess what, I need you to do the same.  Parents I need your help as well.  I know you want to be assured that your child will be safe when they enter my room (and of course all of the classrooms), but I need you to make sure that your children are following the proper safety guidelines as well once they return to your homes.  I don't want your child to become ill, and I definitely don't want to become ill myself.  If we all work together, I know that we can make it through this school year safe and unharmed.  Remember, the key word here is TOGETHER!  No one person can do it alone.  

    If you should need to contact me, you may email me at monica.williams@madison-schools.com.  If you need to speak to me directly, you may dial (662) 468-2531 and leave a message with the receptionist, or school counselor and I will return your call as soon as possible.

    Once again I say WELCOME to the 2020 - 2021 school year.  Through these unchartered waters, may we have one of the best and most promising & fulfilling school years ever!!


    And I know it's going to be, a lovely day......

    A lovely day!
