  • Good evening, Jefferson families, this is your Proud Principal, Sue Villarrubia. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and managed to stay warm. Thank you to our families that supported our JES PTO at CiCi's Pizza on Thursday evening.

    Please listen carefully to the following announcements -

    1. Cold weather is here. Please send a sweatshirt or sweater that your child can leave at school. The temperature varies throughout the building, and we want all students to be learning in a comfortable environment. We do not want our students keeping their winter coats on during instructional time.

    2. Tardies - After 7:30am students are marked tardy. Our car rider line gets busy between 7:20 and 7:30 but is almost totally empty between 7:10 and 7:20am. Please aim for earlier than later because being in the car rider line at 7:30am is not considered on time. If the sign goes out and staff come off the line, you must park and walk your child in so you can check them in on the computer.

    3. Birthdays - Please do not send cupcakes or sweet treats to school for classes. We follow the GCS healthy snack policy, and this includes birthdays. If you send in a treat for a child's birthday, the items must be pre-approved by your child's teacher and will be given out during lunch or recess. Teachers cannot use instructional time for this.

    4. Nightly Reading - Please strongly encourage your child to read each and every night for a minimum of 30 minutes. We are working hard to close gaps due to the Pandemic, but we really need your support in this area.

    This Week -

    Monday -
    Cosmic Bowling - students can wear white or neon colors that will glow in black light.

    Tuesday -
    FUN RUN PRIZE - Students who raised enough money during the Fun Run to earn lunch with a friend will be held in the media center on Tuesday.
    Fire Safety Program - 5th Grade (9:20 - 10:00am)
    4th Grade Virtual Field Trip

    11-23 thru 11-27

    School is closed for students for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

    Thank you for your continued support of the Jefferson Way with Purpose. Have a wonderful and restful holiday break and we will see you back at Jefferson on November 28th.

  • Good evening, Jefferson Families, this is your Proud Principal, Sue Villarrubia. I hope you are having a great weekend. Thank you to all of our families that supported our PTO Trunk or Treat! We are pleased to say that over 400 families attended.

    Remember, Monday is a teacher workday. School is closed for students. ACES is closed as well. Monday is also Halloween. Those who are going trick or treating, remember to be safe and we are also asking that you please not send candy to school with your child. It will make it challenging for our students to focus on instruction.

  • Good Evening Jefferson Families, this is your Proud Principal, Sue Villarrubia. I hope everyone had wonderful weekend and stayed safe through the storm. Thank you to everyone that was able to attend our General PTO meeting, EL Parent Night, or our Brown Bag Lunch & Learn last week. We appreciate your participation in all school activities.

    Please listen carefully to the following announcement - I was contacted by the apartment complex manager from across the street of school. If you are parking over there and walking your child to school, please know that they are going to begin towing unregistered cars that do not belong in their parking lot. Please make sure if you are on our walker list, it is the expectation that you are walking from your house and not parking nearby and walking up to the school to avoid the car rider line. We appreciate you following this procedure.
