May/June 2015

Principal's Corner

As we wind down the end of the school year, I wanted to thank all of our parents and guardians for their support during the 2015-2016 school year. We are so proud of all of our Jefferson students for their hard work.


Please note that we have many celebrations and activities ahead in May. Jefferson students know to follow all of our rules including safety, respect, and responsibility.


We hope you will be able to join us for the fun and festivities as we wind down this wonderful year. Check out our web page and calendar: https://jefferson.boiseschools.org/

PTA Corner

The PTA is already in the process of planning for next year and would love input from the Jefferson parents.

Please take the time to complete this short survey available at this link.

Information from this survey will be shared with the Jefferson Administration to help plan and coordinate PTA activities for next year.

Summer Learning

It is important we continue to make learning happen in the summer. Summer school is available for students who qualify. If you have a question about whether or not your student qualifies, please call the office at 854-5260.


For students who do not, the public library has a great summer reading program that is FREE for all children. Please consider signing up for continued summer reading and great prizes!

THANK YOU TEACHERS AND STAFF FOR MAKING JEFFERSON A WONDERFUL PLACE TO WORK!

Borah Basketball Summer Camp

Borah High School has the opportunity to offer a June Basketball Camp and wants to spread the word to Jefferson students since one day they too will be part of the Borah Lions team.

Counselor's Corner

As summer comes around, please remember the following tips from our Friends at the Love and Logic Institute.


When our bucket is empty, we have nothing to give. Try to be patient, encourage your kids, be relaxed and be enthusiastic role models.


Focus on what you can control. We have control over the types of limits we set and how we respond when our limits are tested.


Set Limits to avoid becoming a doormat.

"I do the extra things around here when I feel respected.

"I listen when your voice is calm like mine."

"I will when I don't hear complaining or arguing."


Provide discipline when it is convenient for you.

Take care of yourself by solving discipline issues when you have the time, energy, and support that you need.
