I would like to welcome you back to Jefferson for the 2017-2018 school year. I hope everyone had a relaxing summer with quality family time.
As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to insure that our children reach their potential. We believe that all of us – the school and the community – must work together in an extended family environment to insure success for all our students. We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible.
With that in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at Jefferson Elementary School. Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the PTO, special event participation, or member of one of our school communities, you are encouraged to be involved! Research on schools clearly demonstrates that parent participation in their child’s school coincides with a greater likelihood of academic success for their child!
I will continue to send out reminders in the monthly school newsletter throughout the school year. Please remember that my staff and I are here to serve you and your child. I am always available and I look forward in building a strong relationship with you and your child.
Thank you for sending your child to Jefferson and I am looking forward in providing your child with an excellent educational experience.
Dr. Kristen Taylor, Principal
