Hello Jefferson Parents,

Do you have more buttons than you could ever use? Please consider donating some of them this season. We are off to a great start in the Art Room this fall and I would greatly appreciate your contribution to some potential seasonal crafts that could decorate homes for years to come! Thank you.

Holiday Basket Application

The Portage County Holiday Basket Project provides food and/or gifts for low income and working poor families who would be unable to provide a holiday meal or gifts for themselves and their children.

House Number Visibility

SPAPSD Families,

If your child is riding the school bus, we would appreciate your help in ensuring that your house or fire number is visible on your mailbox or house. Please check your mailbox/house for number visibility and that these are not blocked by low-hanging branches or shrubs.

Number visibility will specifically help relief drivers to do their job more effectively by ensuring that pickup locations are clearly marked as we head into winter months with limited daylight during AM/PM routes.

Thank you for your assistance!
