Tiger Read to Succeed

We had over 50 2nd and 3rd grade students meet their reading goal and receive “Read Like a Tiger” t-shirts. Between kids who reached their goal and those who didn’t, this senior project inspired 1000+ hours of extra reading over the Christmas Break! Because of snow days, it was decided to honor kids at the January 27th varsity basketball game. Students were invited to wear their t-shirts to get into last Friday night’s game for free as well.

Donuts For Dad's

Thank you for making Donuts for Dad's another Huge SUCCESS! We had close to 600 dads and family members who attended. We are very appreciative of your support!

Idaho Theater for Youth

Thanks to our PTO we will be hosting the Idaho Shakespeare Festival’s Theater for Youth. They will be performing Stuart Little. In addition, we will be hosting three afterschool acting workshops put on by the actors. Teachers are nominating one student from each classroom (25 total). Another 50 spots will be available to families a first-come basis. This was a huge hit last year and we look forward to being able to have an additional 50 student participate in this opportunity.

IRI Testing

Jefferson will start the IRI testing on Monday, February 6th. Parent's, it is very important for the students to have a good nights rest and nutritious food before testing. We appreciate your support.
