Our population of approximately 460 encompasses students of many diverse backgrounds and cultures in kindergarten through sixth grade. We strive to provide the kind of individual attention that encourages students both academically and socially and makes our large school seem like a smaller, more personal one. Thomas Jefferson's mission is to empower our students to be self-motivated, world-class learners who demonstrate respect, responsibility, and commitment to academic excellence. Our motto is One Terrific Journey, and staff, parents, and community supporters are all dedicated to making each child's journey at Thomas Jefferson truly terrific!

After pulling out to a fast lead, the Yellow team (Mahn, Martin & Scoog) was taken down with a last-minute surge by the Pink team (McGlade, Paciorek, Paraskevas & Schultz) with an average of 21.5 BoxTop$ per student. Congratulations to the Pink team and a huge thank you to every parent who helped us by trimming your BoxTop$ - we collected over 5,500! Keep clipping - our next collection will take place after winter break!!
