T.J.'s Mission:
Our population of approximately 580 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!

Hello TJ Families!!

We hope that everyone is enjoying a fabulous summer! We can’t believe that the 2014-2015 school year is just a few weeks away – though summer vacation is full of fun and relaxation, starting the new school year is pretty exciting too!

With that in mind, there are a few dates that we want to make sure everyone gets on their calendars:

Thursday, August 14: TJ Day at Seascape (11:30 am – 3 pm for $5 entry, but stay all day!)

Thursday, August 21: Kindergarten and New Student Tours (6-7:30 pm) 

Friday, August 22: Meet the Teachers (1:30-2:30 pm)  

Monday, August 25 – FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL (1ST-6TH grade) 


Tuesday, August 26 – New Kindergarten Parent Meet and Greet (7:55 am)

Tuesday, August 26 – First PTA Meeting! – 7:15 pm, Multipurpose Room

Thursday, August 28 – Parent Orientation (6:00 – 7:40 pm) 

Friday, August 29 – Back to School Picnic (3:30 – 5:30 pm) 

Finally, we are still looking for Room Reps for all grade levels as well as Committee Chairs! If you’re interested in getting more involved with TJ, both of these are great ways! Click on the Weekly Eminder tab on this website where you can get more information on both of these opportunities, as well as more details on all of the events coming up in the Activity Calendar.

It is going to be another stellar year at TJ – we can’t wait to work with all of you and get started! As always, feel free to contact us with any questions.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!
