PTA Information


P.T.O. is a very vital and active part of Jefferson School. Officers, committee heads, staff, and parents meet monthly to make decisions relating to our school. Approximately two P.T.O. unit meetings are held each year beginning with the annual all school Open House in the fall. Please plan to attend. Children at Jefferson need you!

Box Tops for Education

This year the Jefferson P.T.O. is collecting Box Tops for Education for Jefferson Elementary.  Box Tops is an easy way to earn cash for our school through everyday activities - at no additional cost to you.  Just Clip Box Tops from hundreds of participating products. Box Tops are worth 10¢ each when our school redeems them from Box Tops for Education.  A collection box is located in front of the library.


Don and Millie's Night

This year the Jefferson P.T.O is going to Partner with Don and Millie's on 4430 Farnam, for Family Nights. We will be doing this every third Thursday of each month. The first Family Night will be October 20th. Twenty percent of the proceeds will be donated back to the school. As the first Family Night gets closer, reminders will be posted, and flyers will go home with students. Mark your calendars! To Go orders count as well! Thanks!
