Direct Donation Drive Continues!

Hello, Jaguars!

Fall is flying by! Let's take moment to think about all the amazing things that happen at our school. Through support from JPAT, Jefferson is able to offer some wonderful educational enhancements, like JAG Band, the 5th grade musical, Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB), and over 16 clubs. Our contributions to JPAT help make that awesomeness happen. The Direct Donation Drive (DDD) is one of JPAT’s largest fundraisers. As of October 31, we’ve received just over $3,100 in donations, so we still have a ways to go to reach our goal!

Can you help us reach our goal of $10,000?

  • To make a credit card contribution, visit the Jefferson website at Select FUNDRAISERS from the JPAT drop-down menu and then click “Donate” to give securely through PayPal.

  • Check donations should be made out to “JPAT” and placed in the secure white mailbox just inside the school doors.

Thank you, Jaguars!

-Laura and Gabi, DDD Co-Chairs
