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!

*All meetings start at 7:15pm in the Multipurpose Room

Our Weekly High 5 You did it, we appreciate it!
This week we would like to give a big High 5 to everyone who helped make this year’s fun fair a huge success! We love the fun fair and without so many helping it just wouldn't be possible. Thank you to those who donated raffle basket items and baked goods, those who sold tickets and worked the prize redemption table, those who scooped ice cream and served food, those who decorated and helped clean up. The list goes on and on! Parents, students, teachers and staff we appreciate each of you! Thank you to those who came to participate as well. A special thank you goes to Jen Wessberg for all her creative basket making! The biggest thank you goes to Jessica Wienke our Fun Fair chair - it's a lot of work and you did a fantastic job!!
We also want to thank those of you who participated in the bike to school event and those who helped organize the bikes and stickers as the kids arrived on wheels at school. The fun continued with the lunchtime Earth Day craft - Thank you to those who came in to help! A big High 5 goes to our Environmental Ed Chair Patricia Bell - Thank you for all your creativity!
