PTA President's Note - Thank you to our entire Jefferson Community for an awesome year! With your help we were able to provide a fun year at Jefferson. We started with the "Kindergarten Welcome to Jefferson Play-dates" and will end with our "5th Grade Congratulatory Send-off," but there were so many other events in between. Our amazing Winter Carnival raised approximately $40,000 and more importantly was a fun filled day for Jefferson students and their families. The Social Committee gave each grade an opportunit to socialize outside of school. Junior Achievement returned and was an incredible success. Because of you, we were able to provide Jefferson with Classroom libraries and provide more items for our Maker Space/STEM lab. The PTA cannot do this without you - your support and participation means the word to us and especially to the kids! Thank you for all you do.  


205 Master Facilities Plan - District 205 is creating a Master Facility Plan (MFP) that will focus on educational needs for students, including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), All Day Kindergarten, and Future Ready Learning. The plan will also address pressing maintenance and facility needs. The remaining meetings are:

  • Wednesday, May 23, 2018, 7 – 9 PM, Bryan Middle School
  • Wednesday, May 30, 2018, 7 – 9 PM, Sandburg Middle School

Each presentation will be the same in content; please mark your calendar for the date that best suits you and plan to join the conversation. Draft plans, budgets, and potential boundary adjustments will be presented. The presentations will be followed by small group discussions. All attendees will have the opportunity to provide additional feedback via an electronic exit survey. All are welcome!

The remaining school-specific informational sessions are also planned as follows:

  • Wednesday, May 23, Bryan 6:15 PM
  • Thursday, May 24, Emerson - 8:30 AM
  • Wednesday, May 30 Sandburg 6:15 PM

We strongly encourage all Jefferson parents to attend these meetings to hear the details of the options currently being presented and to provide feedback. 


Math Night - Thank you to everyone who attended Jefferson’s first Math Night! There was a great turnout and because it was so popular, Family Math Night will be back next year! Special thanks to Cathy Dykes, for suggesting Family Math Night and for all of her hard work and to all the volunteers who facilitated the stations.  


PTA Volunteer Opportunities - Thank you for your participation in the PTA this year! We look forward to another exciting year in the fall and remind you to be on the lookout for a PTA information, to be sent this summer. We hope you will choose to join the PTA again and encourage you to look at all the volunteer opportunities available and sign up! Please check our PTA website for detailed information.
