Jefferson Elementary - Principal's Corner

Parents/Guardians of Jefferson Elementary School:

Spring is in the air at Jefferson and we’ve held many excellent events over the past month.  We celebrated National Read Across America Day by hosting volunteer readers who shared their favorite books with students.  Fourth and fifth grade students participated in the school’s spelling bee.  All those that participated did a fantastic job.  The following students will be representing Jefferson at the district’s spelling bee: Nathaniel Campos Pinheiro (4th grade, 1st place), Paula Loja Pardo (5th grade, 2nd place) and Christian Guardado Villegas (4th grade, 3rd place). I know these students will make Jefferson proud.  Kindergarten students were treated to a surprise visit by Bunny Coston and Bunny Velez.  They loved having the opportunity to take pictures and participate in an egg hunt. Our PTO held a successful popcorn fundraiser.  The following students were awarded prizes for the amount of popcorn they sold: Jamarcus Arnold (3rd grade, 1st place), Kelvin Ramirez (1st grade, 2nd place) and Michael Guardado (1st grade, 3rd place).  The PTO is always looking for more parental support-stay tuned for more information on meeting dates and future events.

Beginning April 20th all 4th grade students will be taking the PARCC assessment.  The students and their teachers have been diligently and strategically preparing for this assessment all year.  It is critical that students attend school every day and arrive on time.

Please notify the school immediately if there any changes to your phone number, address or a student’s medical records.  Please review and update all emergency contacts listed for students.  No student will be released to anyone who doesn’t provide the proper identification and is not listed on the emergency forms.

Congratulations to the following students for being chosen by their teachers as Student of the Month for March. Continue the excellent work!
