Online Fundraising Support
Support Jefferson Elementary through these easy online ways to send money to your school!
Benefit is a digital gift card platform that funds the things that matter most through everyday transactions. Cards are purchased and delivered within seconds to the mobile app for immediate in-store redemption. Each purchase earns up to a 20% rebate that is sent to our school. You can raise money for our school with your everyday purchases!
Download the app on your smart phone. Register you credit card or checking account (takes about 2 days to register payment method). Because of credit card fees, checking accounts earn more for our school. Choose "Jefferson Elementary School in Carlsbad" as the organization to which you donate.
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organication. Sign up by visiting smile.amazon.com. Set up your account. Choose "Jefferson Elementary PTA, Carlsbad" as the charity.
Google Express delivers everyday items from your favorite stores, overnight. Which gives you more time for what really matters. Like making your kids’ schools the very best they can be. Use our school’s unique fundraising code (will be posted here soon) and Google Express will also donate $15 to Jefferson PTA.
Join our List of Jefferson Parent Volunteers!
Want to volunteer in your child's classroom, help with field trips or other school events? You'll need to register with the school to become a volunteer. Please check in with the front office to learn more about volunteer opportunities and requirements for the 2016-2017 school year.
When you are entering the drop off and pick-up zone of the school, please assist us with the following requests:
- Adhere to a minimum speed;
- Under no circumstances, leave any vehicle unattended in the pick-up and drop off lane;
- Pull your vehicle all the way forward, often times it may seem empty and okay to park but cars come in groups with the changing lights;
- Drop off and pick up your child at the curb only and not in the second lane;
- Please drop off before the 8:15 a.m. bell rings or before the assigned time for TK and Kinder; and,
- If you child is late, please go through the office.
All this is for the safety of each child here. Many cars stand higher than our children are tall. By being diligent with this each day, we will ensure that this process is safe and seamless.
Also, it is important when visiting our school to park in an unmarked parking space and sign in and sigh out in the office. All visitors must wear a visitor badge.
Finally, so that we can avoid any unnecessary interruption in the classroom, please be sure your child has the necessary items ready to start their day; for example, lunch, homework or extra water.
Thank you for your assistance.
