Jefferson Elementary School Mission Statement
We are committed to assure learning experiences that will assist our students to achieve their greatest potential to adapt and adjust to a diverse and ever changing society. We celebrate the pursuit of lifelong learning and are committed to nurturing high self-esteem and respect for others. We believe that everyone can learn, become better thinkers and independent learners. An integral part of our learning process will have our school community learning how to ask questions, solve problems and make thoughtful decisions. Our goal is to maintain an active partnership involving students, teachers, parents, community and staff to develop a love of learning while embracing our diversity and unique talents in a safe, challenging, respectful and supportive environment.
Jefferson Avenue Elementary just finished up a wonderful week of reading celebrations. We were excited to have Right to Read Week back at Jefferson this year, and are already beginning to think about next year.
The week actually started on Friday, March 4th with a groovy kick off program put on by the staff at Jefferson. The staff did an amazing job putting together a short skit about working together to build a better community. The children enjoyed the program and were informed about the week of actives that were to follow.
