Jefferson Elementary School

Junior Achievement

Junior Achievement is back again this year! Junior Achievement (JA) is a program that empowers young people to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices. Students learn how to manage money, how to become career and work ready, and are empowered to explore their potential to become successful entrepreneurs.  The program will run on your child's lunch recess time for six weeks on Mondays (2nd & 5th grades), Wednesdays (3rd grade) and Fridays (1st & 4th grades) from January 28th through March 1st.  Participant sign up sheets will be coming home soon!


Junior Achievement needs parent volunteers!  All materials and curriculum are provided.  You can volunteer for as many sessions as you'd like.  There will be a quick volunteer orientation with the JA representative right after drop-off on Friday, January 18th at 8:20am.  The program will run for five weeks during lunch recess times as follows:
