  • Good evening, Jefferson Families, this is your Proud Principal, Sue Villarrubia. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We have a SUPER busy week this week. Please listen carefully to the following announcements. Also, don’t forget to check out the JES Community Newsletter for more information. You can find it on the GCS App, Jefferson Facebook, and Twitter as well as through Remind! If you are not connected, please join anytime.

    Announcements -
    TIGER KIM AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAM – The cutoff for registration into the afterschool classes is 10:30am on Monday. The class begins tomorrow, Monday, February 6th immediately following dismissal and end at 3:05pm. Please come to the back parking lot to pick up. You must park and walk up to the gym door to sign your child out each day.

    CANDY GRAMS - Candy Grams will be on sale all week for $1.00.

    ATTENDANCE – Please make every effort for your child to be at school, on time, all day! Attendance = Learning. Currently, we have 158 students that fall in the category of chronically absent, with our highest percentage in kindergarten!

    Car Riders - Please remain in your car, until the staff come off the line in the morning. Staff stay on the line until 7:30am. Students are tardy beginning at 7:30am. Please do not pull out of the line to have your child arrive on time. Car riders should aim to arrive at school between 7:00 and 7:15a.m to avoid any chance of students being marked tardy. It creates safety issues in the parking lot.

    This week –
    2nd Graders will participate in Learn to Swim at the Greensboro Aquatic Center

    Monday thru Thursday -
    TIGER KIM Afterschool Program 2: 10 – 3:05pm

  • Good evening Jefferson families, this is your Proud Principal, Sue Villarrubia. I hope everyone had a great weekend.

    If you are a car rider, please listen carefully to a few reminders. We have several new students that have joined our car rider line. Please remember to have your child ready to exit the car, seated on the sidewalk side of the car with their backpack on when you pull up to the adult on duty. This helps speed up the process significantly. Please pull all the way up to the car in front of you. Our goal is to open 7 car doors at a time and then get the next 7 cars pulled up and unloaded. In the afternoon, the cone numbers are for the staff and students. Please just pull all the way up and follow the directions of the staff. Thank you for your support which will increase the speed and efficiency of our car rider line.

    In the morning, when the staff come off the line at 7:30am, you need to park and check your child in. Students are tardy after 7:30am. Our car rider line is almost empty between 7:10-7:18 each day. You will have a quick drop off if you aim for this time. Do not aim for 7:25am or you may be stuck in the line when the tardy bell rings.
