Jefferson PTA Newsletter


May 28, 2019

PTA expense re-imbursements - Do you still have PTA expenses to be reimbursed? Deadline to  submit to Kelly Perry is Wednesday, May 29th. Expense reimbursements can be dropped in Kelly's mailbox or the school office - please write attention PTA treasurer on the envelope if dropping at Jefferson.

Missed out on the 5th Grade Photo Art at the Tiger Fest? - We had such a great response at the Tiger Fest that we wanted to offer everyone the chance to purchase this amazing photograph that every single one of the 5th graders helped to create! Every Fifth Grade Student had a photo taken at school and these photos were edited to create this very special photo keepsake.  Every student in the 5th grade is in one photo, along with their signature! Each color photo is 16x24, mounted on styrene. It is sturdy enough to hang on the wall, or suitable for framing.

If you would like to order, please send a check in an envelope to the PTA (you can send it with your student or drop it off at the office). Make your check for $50 to: Jefferson PTA.  Please add:  5th GRADE PHOTO in the MEMO section. If you have any questions please email Ioana Fernandez at

Order School Supplies for Next Year - Save yourself the hassle of buying school supplies and pre-order everything today at:  Boxes will be delivered to school the week before classes start.  Prices are comparable to what you would pay in store and the PTA gets a portion of every sale!  Order now through June 15, 2019.

Great Donation Days - In the coming weeks, students will be cleaning out their desks and classrooms and coming home with leftover school supplies.  The Jefferson PTA will be collecting gently used school supplies for donation to local schools in need and to SCARCE (School & Community Assistance for Recycling and Composting Education).  Supplies can be deposited into boxes in the school office foyer.  Collection boxes will be out beginning Wednesday, May 22.
