Thanks for Visiting the TJ PTA Website!
It's your home for all of the events and activities for both TJ's School and PTA.
Check it out and let us know if you have any suggestions - we'd love to hear from you at TJPTA@live.com.
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 know everyone is looking forward to Spring Break at the end of the month, but there are still lots of fun activities going on at TJ this month.
Saturday, March 7th is our Parent’s Social Night at First Place from 8 to 10pm. Please invite your friends and neighbors whether they are TJ alums or up and coming TJ parents to join us. The cost is $20 to school by March 6th or $25 at the door. This gets you whichever drinks you choose (well drinks, beer, wine, or soda). There will be several raffle items including a Blackhawk’s Winter Classic Jersey, golf clubs, sports equipment, Yoga sessions, and gift certificates to local businesses. We would love to see you there! Cheers!
The Annual Fun Fair is Friday March 13th from 5 to 8pm. Come play games. Bid on raffle prizes including a prime spot on grandparent’s weekend, or an activity with your teachers or Mr Sasso. Don’t forget to try your luck at the Cake Walk sponsored by the TJ teachers. There will be a photo booth again this year; come take pictures with your favorite teachers and friends. Don’t forget to warm up your singing voice, and practice your superstar pose. We will have Karaoke for all those who love the spotlight. If you are able to volunteer to help out either baking at home or that evening check out our eminder page for information.
Earth week is coming up in April, we could still use some help organizing our Bike-to-School Day, and a small recycling program during school that week.
As always don't forget if you take any pictures of school events the yearbook committee would like to look at them for publishing in the yearbook at the end of the year.
Please join us for our PTA meeting at 7:15 on Wednesday, March 18. We would love to see you there.
