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!

Grade Level

​Hello TJ Families,

​Wow, can you believe it is February already?!

Adventures in Reading has started at lunchtime for first and second grades. This is a great book club program for the students. They read a book and then have a related game or craft to reinforce the story. Third and Fourth grades will start in March.

We are currently looking for some help in a couple of areas;

The Fun Fair has started planning and organizing for Friday March 13th. Please consider helping out beforehand or even that day; there are many at home opportunities too. 

Environmental Ed is still looking for someone to be in charge of encouraging recycling and environmentally responsible practices at our school, including Green Wednesdays and coordinating some Earth Week activities in April.  

A Book Fair chair is still needed to run the Spring Book Fair which helps raise funds for our LRC to get new books for our children to enjoy.  

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. 

The students will celebrate Valentine’s Day on February 13th. Parties will be after lunch time. Please contact your room parent for chances to come in help out and see your child.

Finally, we would like to invite everyone to come visit our PTA meetings. There is a lot going on the rest of the year. We would love a chance to show you everything the PTA helps with at TJ. Plus you get to help decide what takes place next year. The dates are all on Wednesday evenings starting at 7:15 are February 18, March 18, April 15, and May 20.
