Weekly Weber Update

August 17, 2018

Dear Jefferson Families,

What a wonderful first week of school! We were very busy this week and it was so nice to see the students excited to be back. Classrooms were busy organizing, getting to know each other and developing their learning environments.

Our fifth grade student ambassadors did a fantastic job Thursday evening at New Family Night! These students gave tours of Jefferson to our new families and it was a great success!

Thank you to the PTA for a fantastic welcome back breakfast and first PTA meeting. We had a fabulous turnout and I appreciate everyone’s commitment to our school and students.
