Mr. Cannup

I am looking forward to working with this awesome faculty and staff at West Jackson Elementary School for the seventh year. Educationally, I received a BS in Biology, my teaching certificate, and a Master’s Degree in Education from North Georgia College. I earned a Specialist’s degree in Educational Leadership from Lincoln Memorial University. I taught eighth-grade science and social studies in Hall County before moving to Jackson County.  This is my 25th year in education, and I have spent sixteen of those years in the Jackson County School System in a variety of administrative capacities at various levels and schools.  I currently have the wonderful opportunity to serve as one of the Assistant Principals at WJES.

In 2015, West Jackson Elementary School started as a collaboration of two schools but has melded into ONE fantastic school where we focus on our students in the present, while preparing them for the future as lifelong learners. We will continue to rise to high expectations as we continue the story of WJES. Providing academic rigor, developing problem solvers through a STEAM lens, and making sure we are building strong relationships will always be our focus. Our goal is to create life-long learners by allowing students to have a voice in their academic search.

I will always believe that THIS SCHOOL BELONGS TO ALL OF US! We value the community’s input and will strive to build and foster positive relationships, which in turn will allow us to put our students first. If I can ever be of service to you, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone (706-654-2044) or by email (jcanupp@jcss.us).

Sincerely,

John Canupp

Mrs. King

Welcome back students and families! I am so excited about this upcoming school year!

My family and I joined the Jackson County community in 2017, and we have loved every minute!!! I have two wonderful daughters that attend Jackson County Schools, a wonderful husband that is a sales electrical engineer and two cute cuddly cats!

I have been blessed to serve and work with students and families in education for 24 years! I spent two years in Barrow County, 3 years in Department of Defense Schools in Germany, and fourteen years in Gwinnett County. I’m so fortunate to have worked as a classroom teacher, ESOL teacher, Instructional Coach, and Assistant Principal. 

It is such a joy and honor to work at West Jackson Elementary as Assistant Principal. West Jackson is an amazing family strong school where we believe in engaging students in real world, hands-on learning experiences through a STEAM approach. 

I believe strongly in supporting students and families! I look forward to partnering with you this school year to create a remarkable school year of excellence for your child! Please reach out to me at (706) 654 – 2044 and lking@jcss.us.

Sincerely, 

Lori King
