University School of Jackson

Parent Involvement

USJ parents play a key role in the success of USJ. From volunteering to prepare the football field before a game, above, to serving on the Board of Trustees to working at the annual Holiday Mart, parents are involved in the school at all levels.


Board of Trustees

Members of the Board of Trustees meet each month.


Bruins Club

The Bruins Club supports the total athletic program at USJ by providing funds for many extras that our athletes need. Besides revenue from its annual Super Booster membership drive, the Bruins Club earns a significant portion of its income from operation of concession stands at USJ home athletic events. In recent years, projects funded by the Bruins Club included irrigation systems for athletic fields, and a new spring sports concession stand with restrooms.


Arts Guild

The Arts Guild supports the Fine Arts at all grade levels. The Guild provides support for numerous plays, musicals and art festivals, as well as providing summer scholarship opportunities for deserving students and continuing education for faculty. The Guild also buys additional music and art equipment and supplies.


Parents Club

The USJ Parents Club, which supports the school in many ways, has one major fund-raiser each year: the Holiday Mart, which is always the weekend before Thanksgiving. Besides raising money for many school needs, the Parents Club supports the teachers through projects and a network of room mothers.


Parents Book Club

All parents, staff, and teachers are invited to join the monthly discussions of the Parents' Book Club. Find out more so you can start reading!
