Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s),
Welcome back Jefferson students and parents! It is great to see so many familiar and some new faces at our school. The 2013-2014 school year is going to be the best ever!
This year we have a new theme which coordinates with our AVID focus. The theme for this year is "Finding the Pathway to Success at Jefferson Elementary!" The theme promotes students college readiness skills thereby helping students find their pathway to success. Each classroom will adopt a college as their focus for study and/or their theme for the year.
I would encourage parents and guardians to be involved with your child by monitoring your child’s notebooks and backpacks daily for important homework or communication from your child’s teacher.
Keep updated about school with our new app for smart phones called School Connect. This is new to Ardmore City Schools and Jefferson so we will give you more information about this valuable tool as it become available. It will be exciting to have such immediate information at a fingertip access.
Our first school event is Meet and Greet. Bring school supplies and meet your child’s teacher on Monday, August 19th, from 5:30-7:00 pm. You will find more upcoming events listed on the front of this newsletter. I look forward to visiting with you this school year.
