THANK YOU TO HOSPITALITY COMMITTEE FOR DINNER LAST NIGHT  We would like to thank Joan Vierra and the Hospitality committee for their work in providing dinner last night for the faculty and staff during Parent-Teacher Conferences.  Your support and delicious dinner was greatly appreciated! If you donated or prepared a dish, thank you!

TRICK OR TREAT STREET IS OCTOBER 29TH AT 6:30PM  Our student organizations are gearing up for our 4th Annual Trick or Treat Street!  All elementary-aged children and younger are invited to join in the experience. We will have carnival style games, activities, and spooky experiences for all to enjoy.  

DONATION OPPORTUNITY:  TREATS/BAKED GOODS FOR THE CAKE WALK  Every year, our community shows off their talent for baking or buying the best treats for the cake walk during Trick or Treat Street.  Once again, we need your help to make this event spectacular! Please sign up using the link to provide a treat! TRICK OR TREAT STREET CAKE WALK SIGN UP

DONATION OPPORTUNITY:  CANDY NEEDED FOR TRICK OR TREAT STREET  Due to the generous support of both PTO and Boosters, we are able to provide candy and prizes for our guests.  However, to make this event truly special and extravagant, we need your help! It takes A LOT of candy for the evening.  When you are shopping, please consider picking up a large bag of candy to be given to our guests. If you do, please send it to the office with your student marked “Trick or Treat Street”.  We promise...we will save it for the least some. :)

THOUGHT OF THE WEEK:  HOW CAN WE HELP?  At Jefferson Academy, we are fortunate to be a part of a community that values education and learning.  Our faculty, staff, and administration work each day to ensure that our students are provided opportunities to reach and exceed their potential.  In a lot of cases, our students reach far beyond what they thought themselves capable of. This learning process can be stressful to our families because growing is not always comfortable or easy.  It takes every adult working together in partnership with the child to ensure their success and achievement. Sometimes, we lose sight of the partnership and support we need to provide one another as adults.  So, we would like to know how we can help support you with your child. Would you please complete the following survey? I promise, it is only four questions. How Can We Help?

Have a great week, Jags!
