Welcome to W.C. Handy School

  • Greetings! 

    My name is Cindy Jackson, and it is with great excitement that I rejoin the W.C. Handy Team. I am eagerly anticipating serving the littlest Falcon students.  It is my desire that every student that enters the W.C. Handy Early Childhood Development Center experiences all the joy and love of this happy place! I look forward to working with the dedicated staff, parents, and community to provide age-appropriate learning educational experiences for the students of W.C. Handy School. 

    I am beginning my 19th year in education with experience spanning from Birth-6 grade. My administrative experience has been shaped by one year of success as Director of Handy Head Start and 11 years as either Assistant Principal or Principal of Hibbett Intermediate School. 

    Along with the competent staff, I will continue to work hard to maintain the legacy of success established at W.C. Handy Early Childhood Development Center by maintaining old and establishing new relationships with students, parents, and the community. 

    I am excited and honored to be the leader of the W.C. Handy Team. It is my hope that during the course of the school year, our littlest Falcons will learn and grow. 

    As Principal/Director, my door is always open, and I welcome your input. If I can help you in any way, please let me know. I want W.C. Handy Early Childhood Development Center to continue to be the happiest place on Earth!

    Giving you Tomorrow…Today
    Your System…Our Community…One Florence!
