Message from the Principal

    Welcome to Jefferson Elementary!  I am excited for the upcoming school year.  We will again be focusing on small group instruction in reading and math to continue to improve student achievement.  As well, we are adopting a new form of parent involvement called APTT (Academic Parent Teacher Teams) meetings.  We will have 4 APTT meetings this year.    If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at .
