Jaguars Prowl the World

Thursday, April 18

6:30 - 8:00 pm

This year marks our second annual Jaguars Prowl the World event designed by our Jefferson Equity Team and staff.

Every student will have a project on display because each grade level has a project they are completing during the school days leading up to this event. ALL FAMILIES ARE WELCOME at the event. Please join us to see your child's classwork and all of the projects our Jaguars have assembled.

The purpose for this evening is to showcase our school community, celebrate what makes us different and similar, and better understand how we are connected to each other and the rest of the world.
