A Message from the Principal:
Welcome to a brand new year!
Dear Jefferson Elementary families,
Welcome to the 2014-15 school year at Jefferson Elementary! This school year will be our best ever! Our custodial and maintenance team has done a fine job getting our building ready. Our Olweus Bullying Prevention team has met and planned a great start to our Olweus program for its second year (including the dedication of our buddy bench). Our teachers have worked, all summer, on curriculum and instruction plans for our students. In short, we are ready and very excited to begin another successful year at Jefferson!
I want to invite each of our families to make the very most out of this school year by getting involved! PTA sign-up forms will be available to our kindergarten families at kindergarten orientation night and will be sent home to all other families in their child’s backpacks. This is the best and simplest way you can support our endeavors at Jefferson! All money raised by our PTA goes right back into our school in a multitude of ways that support the great environment we strive to provide. Our PTA funds our field trips and our party treats; they provide the daily planners that are provided to all 1st-3rd grade students and the folders that are given to our kindergarten students; they purchase a personal headphone set for each and every Jefferson student, and they are vital to the success of the programs and events we host throughout the year. Monthly PTA meetings, beginning in October, are held the first Monday of each month at 7:00 in the school library. Please mark your calendars now so you can be a part of this great organization and all the good it does for our school!
Thank you for being our partners in your child’s education! I look forward to working with you in the upcoming year.
