Dear Jefferson Family,


It’s hard to believe that there are only 16 days of learning left before the 2016 summer break begins.  Before May 26th gets here, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved and get excited about what a great year we have had.  Below is a list of all the upcoming activities and events taking place at Jefferson Elementary during the month of May:


Kindergarten Program, 5/5

Muffins for Moms, 5/6

Super Kids Day, 5/13

Senior Day Assembly (morning), 5/16

Art Day, 5/18

Shakespeare Club Performance (evening), 5/19

Volunteer Reception, 5/25

Last Day of School, 5/26


A special thank you to the Jefferson PTA for their leadership throughout the Jeffy Challenge.  This year’s Jeffy Challenge fundraiser was an overwhelming success.  At this point, and money still continues to come in, we have already out raised last year’s total, bringing in a whopping $32,293.  This type of community response wouldn’t have been possible without families who are committed to making their school a better place.  Thanks again to our PTA for helping us to make a difference in our school and greater community.

Dear Jefferson Family,
February is going to be a fun-filled month, full of a number of school related activities.  We 
recently celebrated our 100th day of school. Friendship parties and our first round of state 
assessment (5th grade only) are right around the corner, and we are fresh into our annual 
HEARTS 2016 Challenge.  If you are looking for a way to get involved in your child’s school, 
February should present you with a number of great opportunities.  Below is a list of all the 
upcoming activities and events taking place at Jefferson Elementary during the month of 
 HEARTS Challenge Begins, 2/1
 Coffee with the Principal, 2/5
 Friendship Parties, 2/12
 President’s Day – No School, 2/15
 PTA Skate Night, 2/18
 State Writing Assessment (5th Grade), 2/24
 Jump Rope for Hearts, 2/26
As I stated above, this month we began our HEARTS Challenge.  During the month of February 
and the first couple of weeks in March, we challenge our students to earn more HEARTS than 
they do on average in a given week.  This year we have challenged the student body to 
collectively earn 300 HEARTS stickers during this challenge window.  In the event that our 
students rise up and meet this challenge, a morning celebration activity will take place the 
Thursday before their spring break vacation begins.  We would love your support throughout 
this month in pumping up your child to join in this positive school-wide opportunity.
We’re going to have a busy and exciting February here at Jefferson Elementary.  As always, my 
door is always open; don’t hesitate to get in touch, and thank you for the opportunity to 
learn/work with your children.
Dominic Baron
