THE GREATEST JOG EVER?

OCTOBER 2, 2017

THE JAGUAR JOG: AN AMAZING FUNDRAISER AND FAMILY EVENT

This year's Jaguar Jog was one we won't soon forget. The PTO did amazing work promoting this event as an important fundraising effort for our school, and students and families responded by collecting the highest total ever earned in a Jefferson Jog fundraiser. In addition, amidst ideal weather conditions, students participated with tremendous energy and enthusiasm, numerous parents and relatives volunteered to assist at the event, and many others came to enjoy it all. In the grand finale, Mr. Johnson and PTO President, Mrs. Fitzloff, were "slimed" as a result of fundraising efforts far surpassing the original goal. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this fantastic fundraising phenomenon!

WHAT'S NEW?

The elevator project is 99% complete, with final inspections taking place this week! There is a small amount of blacktop to be added around the base of the structure, and when that is finished we'll have our entire blacktop area available for recess again. Thanks to everyone for your patience throughout this process.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS

Make it a routine to check Monday Folders at home every week. Lots of important information goes home in those folders each Monday. Many times there are papers that need to go home and come back to school with a parent signature.


- This week, be sure to check out the flyer with information regarding Bike / Walk to School Day on Wednesday, October 4, as well as the Book Fair / Family Literacy Night on Tuesday, October 10.


Also, remember that Tuesday, Oct. 10, is a scheduled Two-Hour Late Start Day. Please remember to sign-up if you plan to bring your child here at the "normal" start time.

If you sign-up for this, and your plans change, please notify the office. We want to be sure all students who signed up are safe and sound.
