Help Jog-a-Thon Reach Its Goal

Jogathon, our biggest fundraiser of the year for Jefferson and JPAT, is nearing its goal of $15,000. We are currently at $13,967, so only a little over $1,000 short of our goal! These donations help fund the school band, field trips, and over 15 different clubs at Jefferson Elementary.

Thank you so much to those of you who have already given so generously. If you haven't had a chance to do so, please take the time to donate what you can to help us reach our goal. We truly appreciate it.

Kids Heart Challenge

Our school and PE program is proud to partner with the American Heart Association for the Kids Heart Challenge!

We’re excited to continue jumping rope and learning how to have healthy hearts and how to help others, just like the Heart Heroes! Funds raised through Kids Heart Challenge help kids with special hearts, just like Finn:

Because of the snow days early in the program, we will extend the donation deadline from March 22nd to April 5th.

Thank you for supporting our school event and the American Heart Association! If you have questions about the program please contact Mr. Phillips by email or person.
