Jefferson Elementary has a very active Parent Teacher Association. Check back frequently as we'll be posting all sorts of information about what we do and ways for every parent to get involved throughout the year.
PTA UPDATES - November 2013
Dear Jefferson Families --
Hope you were able to join us for the Monster Mash Family Dance this past weekend! It was a great night! It was so much fun to see the children in their costumes, and dancing their little hearts out! A couple of us "older" Jaguars could be seen dancing too...=D. A very special thank you to all the folks that helped decorate, arrange food, sell tickets at the door, work the dance, and then helped clean up! You were an amazing team: Ilima Martinez, April Daliot, Lauren Auerbach, Stephanie Brown (aka "Stevie"), Andrea Santini, Brenda Serrano, Pam Nolte, Nannette Ferguson, Lauren Lewis, Tamara Moody, Alixe & Andy Fessler, Dana Rangel, Laurel Ferreira, Kate Alva, Shelley Thomas, Rae Merritt, Mary Krescanko, and Livia Faure-Gault. Thanks to Catalina and her team from El Puerto and to Flippin Pizzas -- all of our food sold to very happy (and satisfied) customers!
As we move into November, you'll notice the time flying even more quickly. Indeed, the holidays are upon us, and everyone's schedule seems to take a hit at home and a school. There just doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to accomplish everything! Here's a few events or dates to put on your calendar before they sneak up on you....
- November 11th -- Veteran's Day...NO SCHOOL
- November 25th - 29th -- Thanksgiving Holiday...NO SCHOOL ALL WEEK
- SOS Campaign Continues -- Please review the paperwork sent home with your student(s) and make a contribution to our SOS campaign. Every dollar we collect goes right back to giving the students of Jefferson the best classroom experience, most enriched programs, field trips, and after school activities we can offer. Art, Music, PE, World Languages, computer labs, time with the Story Queen, and more are all paid for by these donations. Please give what you can and return your contribution in the envelope provided. If you'd like to make monthly payments, need help with matching funds from your company, or want to send out information to family members to ask for their support, please let me know and I'll walk you through the process. We are happy to help make this as easy on you as possible. Thanks in advance for your support!
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. You can also contact any member of the Executive Board.
