Happy Summer!

What a year it has been! We cannot believe that we are approaching the last few days of school. Our last day of school for students is Wednesday, May 26th. It has been a difficult yet wonderful school year. We have all grown in so many ways! We would like to thank all of the parents, students, and staff for all the support and hard work this year. We hope that you have a relaxing and enjoyable summer and are able to spend time with family and friends!

Farewell to our Fabulous Fifth Grade Class

We want to wish all of our 5th grade Jaguars a wonderful summer! We are so proud of the students that you are and we know that you will represent us well when you move on to the middle school. We hope that when you leave us, you remember all that you have learned while you were at Jefferson. You will certainly be missed by all! Good luck!

Miss Jacque Our Family Liaison

Miss Jacque has worked to help many students and families this school year. She recognizes special needs that students might have outside of academics and works with students in multiple settings. She might take a lunch group or go into a classroom or just simply check in on students to see how they are. We are lucky to have her in our building several days a week.
