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.

Jefferson School Receives Distinguished School & Honor Roll Awards

California Distinguished School is an award given by the California State Board of Education to public schools within the state that best represent exemplary and quality educational programs. Approximately five percent of California schools are awarded this honor each year following a selection process. 

The program was established in 1985 and alternates each year between elementary (even years) and secondary (odd years) schools. The schools are recognized as distinguished for four years, and after that the recognition may be renewed.


Dear Students and Families:

On behalf of the Jefferson Elementary Community, I want to congratulate you and your children! Our school was recently recognized as a 2017 - 2018 Educational Results Partnership (ERP) Honor Roll School for our high achievement and student success! The Honor Roll program, sponsored by the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE), is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and districts that are improving student outcomes. Jefferson Elementary School is one of 1,798 public schools in California to be recognized.


The 2017 - 2018 ERP Honor Roll utilizes public school student achievement data to identify successful schools and districts. Our school stands above others in the state because of our demonstrated ability to get students to grade level achievement and beyond.


Schools that receive the ERP Honor Roll distinction have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations. 


Here are a few important facts about the ERP Honor Roll:


  • It’s the only award given in collaboration with business leaders
  • It establishes a higher bar of performance than any other award
  • It is conducted by Educational Results Partnership, a nonprofit organization that maintains the nation’s largest database on student achievement


We did not apply for this award. Our results led them to us! Because of our accomplishment, we will be featured on the ERP Honor Roll website and a banner has been designed for us to hang proudly at our school.


We are thankful for the hard work of our students and teachers here at Jefferson Elementary School. This recognition is a testament to the sustained focus on academic results and commitment to student success that our school and parent community have shown over the years. 



Again, congratulations and let’s keep up the great work!


 Mr. Godin
