Admin Corner

As we are entering the final week of the semester we are reminding our Bulldogs of the expectations we have here at Jefferson and how important it is to finish the semester strong in all of their classes. We have a busy week ahead as we near Winter break. Next week we have our Science Fair, our Holiday Dance, and the Boys Basketball playoffs. It will be a fun final week of the semester here at Jefferson.

Our boys' basketball season is coming to a close. Our Bulldogs finished the regular season with a record of 4-2 and earned the number 3 seed for the playoffs. We have our semi-final game on Monday (12/16) at Navarre against Navarre. If we win the Championship game will be on Wednesday evening. Come out and support our Bulldogs as we try to finish another season on top.

If you do not yet have PowerSchool access, you can contact our office and our secretaries are able to set you up with the information you need. If you ever have questions or concerns regarding your students' performance, please do not hesitate to reach out to their teachers
