A Message from the Principal:
Dear Jefferson families,
Our students are off to an outstanding academic start. We have done our first round of benchmark testing and have begun all the programs that support our learners each and every day. Research shows that one of the most important things we as parents can do to enhance our children’s academic success is to spend time reading together. Our kindergarten and first grade students, developing their early reading skills, love to hear a great story and can “help” you read it when one of their sight words appears in the text. In addition to the time you spend reading with your child, the Accelerated Reader program is a great way for you to encourage your 2nd and 3rd grade children to read outside of school. We will provide the rewards here in school as they reach their reading goals. Making time in the busy schedule for reading will pay big dividends throughout this and many school years to come.
I want to thank our teachers, staff, parents, and community for the support, enthusiasm, and generosity you demonstrate each and every day. Together, we make Jefferson Elementary Center an outstanding place to learn and grow!
