The Halloween Parade, which is on October 31st, is a wonderful Jefferson tradition! Students should wear their costumes to school and bring a change of clothes with them. Please do not send your child to school with scary masks, plastic weapons or anything that would be inappropriate for elementary students. The students will be getting changed immediately following the parade, so please do not have them come in with sprayed hair or make-up that would be difficult to take off. The parade begins promptly at 8:30am and students will come out Door 1 and proceed down Poplar and turn right on Niagara and then right onto Linden Ave and return into school through Door 2. Please do not have dogs on the route, as we want to ensure all students feel safe.
Parents are invited to stay around to see our wonderful Jefferson teachers do a Halloween performance.
This is an event unique to Jefferson - an entire Thanksgiving meal is served to student and teachers by an army of PTA volunteers! Food is provided by York Food Services. This year's Thanksgiving Feast will be held on Thursday, November 17th, 2022.
Please contact Rebecca Harpster and Kerri Timmerwilke if you have any questions.
The Giving Tree is a wonderful Jefferson tradition that gives students a chance to help families in need during the holidays. Each student is encouraged to donate a gift card to help make the holidays special for each family.
After all the children have placed their donation, there is a special program given by all grades. This year's Giving Tree program will be in December 2022. For more information, please contact Megan Corrigan.
