T.J.'s Mission:
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!

Our Weekly High 5 – You did it, we appreciate it!

This week we'd like to give a high 5 to ALL the parents involved with making our Halloween celebrations a big success. Thank you to the room parents who planned fun parties, the parents who volunteered to help and a special thank you to all the parents that donated Halloween costumes for our TJ kids. Because of you, some very special children were able to have a fantastic Halloween. Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who came to TJ to watch the Halloween Parade. This is a fun tradition, and the kids love getting to show off their costumes. 

This week we’d like to give a high 5 to Sarah Fricke for doing such a great job coordinate and putting together our 2018-19 PTA Directory. This is a great resource for parents and thank you for all the work that went into getting this done.
