DECEMBER ALREADY?

Dec. 1, 2017

MCEDUCATORS' NIGHT

Many Jefferson families and staff members supported the latest PTO fundraiser by having a meal at a local McDonalds on the evening of November 27. Jefferson school received 35% of the sales between the hours of 5:00 - 7:00 P.M., and there was a great turnout. Free smiles were a big part of the evening, as demonstrated in the picture gallery below. Thanks to all the parents and staff who volunteered to work the event, and to all the families who used this fundraising opportunity to take a night off from cooking. THANK YOU!!

FALL CONFERENCES COMPLETE

Thanks to all the families who were able to visit us during Fall Conferences. Research shows that parents who build quality relationships with the school, and communicate frequently with teachers, positively impact the academic achievement of their kids. If you weren't able to attend conferences, it's not too late to schedule a time to meet with us. We are always willing to take time to meet with parents to share the wonderful things happening at Jefferson School.

Also, a HUGE thank you to the PTO and all the parents who donated their time and culinary skills to provide meals for our staff during conferences. This kind gesture is GREATLY appreciated. It truly is something that keeps us going through long conference days and nights.

THOUGHT EXCHANGE SEEKS SCHOOL CALENDAR FEEDBACK

On November 27 all Jefferson families for whom we have an accurate email address and/or phone number received a message from the principal about the next ISD77 ThoughtExchange engagement. On November 28 they received a link to the survey. If you haven't done so already, please take a few minutes to provide us with feedback regarding the school calendar. We very much appreciate hearing from the families we serve as we strive for ways to continuously improve.
