Congratulations to Jefferson's Teacher of the Year!
Michelle Bennett, 3rd Grade
Letter from Our Principal
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 February:
- 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.
