Welcome to the 2016-17 school year at Jefferson Elementary! I am thrilled to be joining such a strong learning community, one where staff members, students, and family members all come together to ensure that children have a high-quality and engaging experience at school each day. I am looking forward to getting to know students and families, so please reach out to me if you have questions or concerns, or if you’d just like to help me learn more about Jefferson!
Our goal at Jefferson is expressed in our mission statement: “At Jefferson Elementary School, we achieve to high standards by providing a meaningful and relevant education, preparing each of our students to be healthy, well-rounded lifelong learners and responsible citizens in a changing society.” The focus at Jefferson is on the whole child – and on each child as a unique individual whose achievement and development will be supported by a reflective, responsive staff. Families play an essential role as partners in the education of their children, so please consider volunteering to help in your child’s classroom and/or with other activities around the school. A strong home-school connection is a great way to support your child’s learning.
Thank you for your support of Jefferson Elementary School. It’s going to be a great year!
