All Lost and Found to be Donated Tuesday 11/20

Thank you for searching through Lost and Found during conferences but it is time for us to donate the huge piles of jackets and sweatshirts we have remaining to Vina Moses. You have until Tuesday 11/20 to find that lost item and then everything is headed to donation.

Thank you.


Fundraiser for Paradise, California

The Jefferson Helping Hands Club is collecting money donations to send to California families affected by the recent fires.

Jefferson has a personal connection to Paradise, CA as it is the hometown of our librarian Kathryn Melivn. Mrs. Melvin has traveled twice to Chico, CA to take care of her evacuated family and to provide support to other members of her hometown community. All money collected will purchase grocery store gift cards to distribute directly to families in Paradise by Mrs. Melvin. There is a donation jar in the front office. Anything helps!

If you have any questions, please contact Megan McQueen.

Direct Donation Drive Continues!

Hello, Jaguars!

Fall is flying by! Let's take moment to think about all the amazing things that happen at our school. Through support from JPAT, Jefferson is able to offer some wonderful educational enhancements, like JAG Band, the 5th grade musical, Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB), and over 16 clubs. Our contributions to JPAT help make that awesomeness happen. The Direct Donation Drive (DDD) is one of JPAT’s largest fundraisers. As of October 31, we’ve received just over $3,100 in donations, so we still have a ways to go to reach our goal!

Can you help us reach our goal of $10,000?

  • To make a credit card contribution, visit the Jefferson website at Select FUNDRAISERS from the JPAT drop-down menu and then click “Donate” to give securely through PayPal.

  • Check donations should be made out to “JPAT” and placed in the secure white mailbox just inside the school doors.

Thank you, Jaguars!

-Laura and Gabi, DDD Co-Chairs
