Upcoming Events at Jeffries

Coin War taking place this WEEK!!!

Jeffries Student Council is doing an event to raise money for Convoy of Hope.

Teachers buckets will be under the televisions in the main hallway on tables. Student Council members and PTA parents will be present each morning to help students put money in the correct buckets. Silver coins and dollar bills count as positive money in your bucket and pennies count as negative money in your buckets. Each grade level will have a winner and they will receive a popsicle party. The overall winner for the whole school will receive a pizza party!

5th Annual Strike Tournament in P.E.

This week we will be having our 5th Annual Strike Tournament in PE. Our Strike Tournament takes place at the end of our Bowling Unit in PE each year. Each class will try to get as many strikes as they can in their PE classes this week. Students in grade kindergarten through 2nd will compete against each other and students in grades 3rd through 5th will compete against each other. The classes that get the most strikes in each division will win a golden bowling pin trophy for their class to keep and display in their classroom for the rest of the school year (they are displayed in my office window). The trophy will be presented at the next leadership assembly.

In other news: Grade cards for 3rd quarter were sent home this past Friday. Students have until Friday to get their grade card envelope signed and brought back to school. I don't need the grade card, just the signed envelope. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding your child's grades. Thank you!
