They will wait in the office (on the bench outside the office) and read or work on other work provided by the teacher.

When you register early, we learn sooner how many students we will have and which grades may need 3 classes. The sooner we know, the better the teaching candidates we can interview for the position. So, the sooner you register the better, please!

6th Grade Parent Night at Jefferson April 19th
With your child’s sixth grade school year quickly coming to an end, Mr. Warnke and his administrative team invites you to the 6th Grade Parent Night at Jefferson Junior High. He and his administrative team will be holding this event on Thursday, April 19th from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm in the Jefferson LRC. Mark your calendars!
During the presentation, the team will cover what a typical day looks like for a 7th grader at Jefferson Junior High, exploratory/elective offerings, daily procedures, athletics/activities/intramurals offered, and what you can expect as parents as your child transitions to Jefferson. The team will also give plenty of time for parents to ask any question that they may have in regards to Jefferson Junior High School.
On Friday, April 20th, our sixth graders will be visiting Jefferson, for their Step Up Day. They will be receiving a very similar presentation and receiving a tour of the building, which will be led by 8th grade students and staff.
Jefferson's administrative team looks forward to meeting you all and creating a memorable experience for soon to be 7th graders! Do not hesitate to contact Mr. Warnke, or any of the administrative team at Jefferson, if you have any questions. Reminders will be sent closer to the event.
Meadowview Fun Fair is April 20th!
And don't forget to bring your donations for our Savers Fundraiser! The truck will be here all day!
DID YOU KNOW??
- Did you know outside supervision by teachers starts at 8:00 am?
- Did you know students are brought into the building, to their lockers, and then into their classrooms at 8:05 am?
- Did you know we say the Pledge of Allegiance and announcements at 8:15 am and instruction starts at 8:20 am?
- Did you know our buses are typically here at between 8:00 and 8:05? If you are dropping off your child, please remember to move up as far as you can so we can have as many students get out of their vehicles as possible. Do you have to drive your child? Could you walk instead? Think about it! Especially with the weather getting nicer and nicer!
- Did you know we have one person outside at recess for every classroom? (That's the same amount of adults in typical classrooms!)
- Did you know we have 7 teachers who work during their lunch in the lunchroom? I am often in there as well! When teachers are in the lunchroom, they can use the same language they use in the classroom. And they know students!
You can help us with school safety!
While waiting for your child after school, or waiting for your child to enter the building in the morning, you may want to remember this phrase:
See Something, Hear Something, Say Something!
If you see something suspicious, say something to a teacher, me, or call 911.
If you hear something suspicious, say something to a teacher, me, or call 911.
Calling 911 is not just for emergencies in Woodridge anymore! If you see a suspicious car in our parking lot, or parked near the school, call 911 and tell the police about it!
