Jefferson "Tiger News"


October 12, 2018

Dear Jefferson Families,

What a fantastic week! Thank you to everyone who was able to make it out to our Science Olympiad last night. It was a huge success because of all our volunteers! Thank you to Mrs. Vogel and Mrs. Scharfenberg for chairing the committee. Our next PTA meeting will be Tuesday, October 16th at 7:00pm. During the meeting, I will be sharing the Jefferson School Improvement Plan for this school year. I look forward to informing you of what our goals as a district and as a school are for the current school year.

This year we have added something new to our PBIS system as a school. Students receive PAWS tickets for showing great behavior and being respectful, responsible, and safe. Each week, we honor one student from each class and now each month we will draw one name per grade level to be our Monthly Mystery Winner. Congratulations to the following students who are our September winners: Lucas Planz, Jayce Connell, Justin Stokes, Brody Zimmer, Peyton Armstrong, and Elle Smith. These students received a Jefferson t-shirt and had their picture taken for our PBIS board.


Halloween Parade
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.

Parent Teacher Conferences
Conference sign-up will be online. If you have not registered (new families and kindergarten families) will receive a secure email from D205 that contains a letter and link for you to register and have a parent single sign-on (SSO) to our PowerSchool system. Everyone will be able to sign up for conferences beginning at 6:00am on November 5th. The window will be open to sign-up until November 9th at midnight. Conferences will be 20-minutes and will be on Monday, November 19th from 4:30-8:00pm and on Tuesday, November 20th from 10:00am-6:00pm. Please know that this time is designated for the teachers to confer and discuss students’ achievements. I hope that you honor this time and use it to meet with or speak with your child’s teacher. If you are not in town, please schedule a phone conference during these days.


PTA Reflections 
Does your son or daughter enjoy art, music and dance or have an interest in writing, producing films and taking photos? Then have them show off their artistic talents in this year's PTA Reflections contest. This year's theme "Heroes Around Me," calls for their unique interpretation through the arts. Click the following link for submission guidelines and an entry form.Deadline is Friday, November 2nd, 2018. There will be a container available for submissions at the Jefferson front desk. For questions, contact Deepa Thakar at


Jefferson’s First Trivia Night
Save the date! November 2nd is the first ever Jefferson Trivia Night. There will be prizes and a silent auction. Book your sitters now, as this is for adults only. There was a flyer sent home this week in students’ backpacks with more information. We look forward to a fun-filled evening.
