Jefferson Elementary Announcements
An after-school book club has recently been started for 4th & 5th grade students attending Jefferson. The book club is being hosted by Mrs. Jung, 3rd grade teacher, and Mrs. Sajdak, 2nd grade teacher. This book club requires approximately 100 pages of independent reading, outside of school, per week. The students are divided into teams of three students. During the last two sessions the students will answer questions in a book battle to see which team can answer the most questions.
Attention Jefferson Families!
On Thursday, May 14 starting at 12:15, the students will be participating in Jogging for Jefferson, a 30-minute fun run to raise funds for playground equipment as well as promote health and fitness. The program will kick off at the school wide assembly on April 24. There will be a packet sent home with the students that day to explain the program in detail. We ask for your support in two ways.
1. Help your student to contact friends and family for pledges or donations toward their participation in the event.
2. Volunteer the day of the event. Lots of help is needed for things to run smoothly. The kids will love having you there cheering them on!
If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please contact Erin Bethancourt email@example.com, or Becky Brown firstname.lastname@example.org
