PARKING LOT SAFETY
Thank you to all the drivers who take extra precautions when picking up or dropping off students in the parking lot. Please use the pickup and drop off area, so we do not block incoming and outgoing traffic. Last, please be sure the children are on the curb side of your vehicle, so they do not have to step into traffic. Thank you for your assistance.
Positive Behavior at Jefferson
Every year, Jefferson has a different schoolwide theme. This theme is incorporated into our monthly Character assemblies and celebrations. This year’s theme is Bobcats are all in this together. It is a theme stating that we will work together and support each other as we work through this difficult time.
Bobcats are in charge of their learning.
BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR GOLDEN TICKETS!
Golden Tickets are given to students when an adult notices them showing Bobcat expectations and following the school rules (being responsible, respectful and safe). At the end of each month 2 Golden Tickets are drawn from each class and those lucky winners get to sit at a special lunch table known as the Golden Table.
WHAT IS A SELF MANAGER?
Many students at Jefferson have shown that they ALWAYS show Bobcat expectations. These students can apply to be Self Managers. A Self Manager gets a special badge which means they do not need to use hall passes. There are also weekly celebrations for the Self Managers and many other privileges. Any student can be a Self Manager if they work hard at it and make good choices for themselves!
