Positive Shout Outs

Congratulations to our students that were chosen by their teachers for a positive shout out this week! We love to recognize these students for their kindness and positive PRIDE behaviors! We thank them for being leaders and role models at Thomas Jefferson! The students names were announced on the announcements on Friday and their name will be displayed on the bulletin board outside of the office on our shout out board.

Spotlight On Our Virtual Teachers at Jefferson

We are so thankful for all of our virtual teachers in the district. This week we would like to feature the teachers that are working out of Thomas Jefferson and teaching virtually every day.

These teachers are rockstars! They have worked hard to engage students virtually all year long. They have learned many new strategies and tools and we are thankful for all that they have done this school year. We have many virtual teachers that work throughout the district, but we are lucky to have these teachers in our building every day!
