i-Ready diagnostic tests in reading and math will be enabled for all K-5 students on June 1, with a goal of finishing by June 15. Students will see the tests automatically when they log in beginning June 1. This is an opportunity for students to independently show what they know, and it will also reset their lesson pathways for the summer. Teachers will communicate more details to students and families in coming weeks. Students can earn extra miles for our “Send Thunder to Kenya” i-Ready challenge by completing the diagnostics. Students will not be able to work on lessons again until they have completed the diagnostics. More information is here, and there is also a parent video here.
When we started our "Send Thunder to Kenya" i-Ready challenge, we didn't know that a Jefferson family is hosting a college student from Kenya! In this video, Ian shares about his country -- including rhinos!
Jefferson Chargers: Earn miles to send Jefferson's mascot, Thunder, to Kenya to learn about rhinos by completing i-Ready reading and math lessons each week! Details are in the video.
The Elementary School Art Show took place as planned this year and was displayed at the CRC, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many people in the district were not able to view the lively, colorful art in the show. However, the wonderful work of our elementary school student artists can be viewed virtually here. Thank you all for supporting these amazing students.
Now, more than ever, schools are the heart of our community. Investing in our schools continues our focus on not only academics, but the well-being of every student in our district. The school board has recognized that need and decided to put the $317.4 million bond that was to run in April, on the August 4, 2020 ballot.

With the district-wide closure of Everett Public Schools, we have created a website that includes an initial set of materials intended to support students’ engagement in learning. The materials do not replace the experience of being in school but can help students maintain the learning that has taken place this school year. Click the headline to visit the page.
On April 6, Governor Inslee announced the closure of all school buildings in our state through the end of this school year. Please click the headline for more information.

Educators are constantly asking ourselves how we are doing in our quest to help students become their very best selves. Now, we want to know how you – our community of families – think we are doing. Jefferson, like all Everett Public Schools, is committed to continuous improvement. Each year, we seek your insight to help us create our School Improvement Plan. You are invited to take part in this year’s anonymous survey developed by the Center for Educational Effectiveness, a Bellevue-based research firm, for Everett Public Schools. A paper copy of the survey is coming home soon, or you can take the survey online at https://www.research.net/r/eps-parent. You may choose either method to respond. Although the survey is open through April 3, we are asking for paper copies to be returned by March 30. Your opinions are very valuable to us, since you are partners in the education of students.
