Principal's Greeting

Welcome to the Jefferson Elementary Webpage. I am pleased that you are interested in finding out information about our school. Jefferson Elementary School is filled with wonderful students, teachers, support staff, and offers many opportunities for children to find success.

We currently have approximately 550 students enrolled in Kindergarten through 6th grade. We are committed to providing students the highest quality education possible due to an outstanding staff. The instruction at Jefferson is designed to meet the individual needs of each student. We strive to challenge every student to reach his or her full potential in a safe, productive learning environment. Our environment is supported by a caring, professional staff and includes exceptional parental involvement and community partners accepting the responsibility to offer a quality education to all students. We are also committed in providing students and staff with the most up-to-date technology to enhance learning. Every teaching space has an interactive white board (Smartboard) LCD projector, digital presenter, and networked computers. In addition to a computer lab, we also have several mobile laptop computer labs. Students are using several computer programs to complement reading and math skills.

Communication between home and school is so important. We make attempts to keep you informed with school newsletters, class newsletters, automated phone message system, our school sign, and this school Website. Jefferson Elementary is fortunate to have a very active and involved P.T.A. which helps in a variety of ways. Their involvement and support is felt by our staff, families, and students. Please consider joining our PTA and become involved in your child’s education.

All of us firmly believe that it is critical for students, teachers, parents, and administrators to nurture and participate in an atmosphere of open communication. Visiting this webpage is an excellent way to keep in touch. Our goal is to provide the best education possible in a safe and caring learning environment. Please feel free to stop by and see the great things our students are doing!



I am so glad to be a part of the Jefferson School family and am looking forward to getting to know the students, families, and community. As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to insure that our children come to school ready to learn. We believe that all of us—the school and the community—must work together in an extended family environment to insure successes for all our students in a safe learning environment.

We will keep you informed of all that is taking place at school. Up-to-date information will be sent to you in Take-home Folders which will also include a monthly newsletter. It is also important that you keep your information up-to-date for us with things like new phone numbers, emergency contacts, and changes of address.

The school received the Silver Award for Excellence in Improvement for the second year in a row for which we are all proud. We, at Jefferson Elementary, will continue our commitment to working with all children and developing good relationships with them and their families. It's going to be a great year!
