Thanks for Visiting the TJ PTA Website!

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!

Currently we spend $475 on these services and it would be wonderful if we could save that money and put it towards programs for our students instead! Contact Sarah Winter (sarahwintertj@comcast.net) or Amy (aetnyre@gmail.com) for more information.
