Jefferson "Tiger News"


March 15, 2019

Dear Jefferson Families,

I hope you had a great week. Thank you for your patience with the flooding of the underpass early this week. I appreciate the parent help as well as patience to ensure everyone was able to get home safely. This is something I will make our building and grounds supervisor aware of and look to find some resolutions to this problem.  

This week we have a PTA meeting at 8:30am on Tuesday. Late Arrival is also this week on Wednesday. The school day begins at 9:45am on late arrivals. Morning kindergarten is from 9:45am-11:55am; afternoon kindergarten begins at 12:55pm.

As cold and flu season is here for a bit longer, please follow our guidelines for keeping students home when they are ill. We want to ensure that we keep our students safe and healthy. Please do not send students to school unless they are fever free without medicine for 24 hours.

Illinois Science Assessment
Students in fifth grade will take the Illinois Science Assessment on Tuesday of next week. This is a state required test that will be administered in student classrooms using their Chromebooks.

Illinois Assessment for Readiness
When we return from Spring break, students in grades 3-5 will be taking the Illinois Assessment for Readiness (formerly PARCC). This assessment measures students’ academic success in the areas of reading and math. It is a state mandated assessment and it is expected that all students participate. Your child’s teacher will inform you of the testing schedule in the upcoming weeks.

Orchestra Festival
Orchestra students will be participating in the district Orchestra Festival on Tuesday March 19th at York High School at 7:30pm. They will be doing a rehearsal field trip during the day on Tuesday. There will be no after school orchestra practice on Tuesday as well.

5th Grade Middle School Visits
Our fifth grade students will be going to visit their middle school in May. These visits are to help students get a feel of the middle school, tour the building and be able to ask some questions. There will also be Parent Information Nights in May as well as opportunities for students to visit in August; those dates will be shared soon. At Jefferson, we have students attending all three middle schools, so your child will attend the visit of the school they will be attending. Permission slips for the visits will be sent home via classroom teachers.
