PTO Fundraising is so Important!

Please support Jefferson students by participating in our fundraisers throughout the year. Our fundraising provides incentives for our students and staff in our efforts to promote positive behavior and morale here at our school. We have a PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support) system in place that our students love and special activities at selected grade levels. Let us know if you can assist us during the year with the various fundraising efforts.

Welcome to Jefferson School


Jefferson students save up enough Eagle vouchers to participate in "Lunch Reservations." Great job, Eagles!

Our role as educators is to empower every child with a solid educational foundation, serving as a key to open the doors of opportunity and future possibilities.

This program sets the foundation for a love of the arts that will be sustained throughout our students’ lives.
