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!
Welcome back to school TJ Families!
We know all the children are looking forward to the start of a new school year. We at the PTA are looking forward to all the fun programs that we will be sponsoring this year. Some of the events that will be brought to you this year are;
The Back to School Picnic, hope you enjoyed hot dogs, snow cones, and games,
The Halloween Party, with a costume contest, and crafts,
Creative Writing, which allows your child to write and publish their own book,
The GREAT (Great Reading Evident At TJ) Program, which give your K through 2 children a little boost in reading,
AIR (Adventures in Reading) which is a lunchtime reading club for grades 1 through 4,
Cultural Arts, which puts on 3 shows a year including the annual favorite The Wheel of Wisdom Game Show (like Jeopardy for kids),
Kindergym, with Mr Johnson’s help the kindergartners get to do special events in gym and have an award ceremony at the end,
And Sixth Grade Events, which helps 6th graders get T-shirts, a special memory book of their own and a picnic at the end of the year.
We are always looking for volunteers to help us with these wonderful children oriented programs. If you can work from home or come in to school 1 to 2 hours a week we would appreciate the donation of your time! Please check out the website weekly for volunteer opportunities around the school or at home
Hopefully we will see you at our next meeting on Wednesday September 17th. Next month we hear from the 2nd Grade Teachers and will talk more about our exciting new reading incentive program for all the students to participate in.
Here is to a sensational 2014-2015 school year at Thomas Jefferson!
