Weekly Weber Update

February 19, 2018

Dear Jefferson Families,

I hope everyone is enjoying the extra day off this week. This Friday is already the end of the second trimester. Please come out to enjoy the Winter Carnival sponsored by the PTA this coming Saturday. It is a wonderful day of games, food and fun!

On February 23, the PTA will be hosting a Coffee with Mrs. Weber. This will be an opportunity for me to discuss our School Improvement Plan and share information with families about our district and school focus. Please join us after drop off for some coffee and socializing. The presentation will begin at 8:30am.

Just a gentle reminder to please not park or drop off students in the crosswalk area. I know that with the snow it can be difficult to find a place, but please use Poplar and Linden to park. We have also received some complaints about driveways being blocked, so it would be appreciated by our neighbors if we avoid those areas as well. Thank you for your cooperation and hopefully Spring will be here soon!
