This interactive presentation for Parents Only will show you how to set appropriate screen time limits for your children as well as how to empower children to make good choices about their own screen use.

Jefferson Math Night!

Please mark your calendar for Math Night at Jefferson! On May 2 from 6:00-7:30, we will have games, puzzles, art activities, and challenging math problems to solve. There will lots of math-cool activities for the whole family to enjoy! Please contact Rachel Harrington at or Rebecca Novak at if you would like to help with this event.

Hat Day is Friday!

The Helping Hands Club is organizing a hat day on Friday, May 3rd. Students may wear a hat to school, and if they have extra money, they can donate it to buy hats for cancer patients.

You are free to donate money (and wear a funky hat) too!

What I Am Reading this Week

Parent Volunteers and Field Trips

Just a reminder that any parents who would like to attend field trips with their child or volunteer in their child's classroom must complete a volunteer application prior to volunteering. Please click this LINK and apply today if you did not complete a volunteer application when you did Registar this summer.
