Earth Day Activities
Hello Jefferson families! The Green Team will be facilitating an Earth Day celebration on Friday, April 21st, with eco-friendly yard activities during morning and afternoon recesses (see below for more details). We are collecting USED CDs (old CDs that you no longer listen to, scratched/broken, or any kind of used CD that you no longer want) for a upcycled CD art project and are placing a collection box outside the school office. We are also seeking PARENT/GUARDIAN VOLUNTEERS to help out with the yard activities – please contact Lori Hess at email@example.com if you are able to help out. We need parent/guardian help at two slots: 9:25 to 10:20 and 11:25 to 12:40 on Friday 4/21.
Here are some more details about Jefferson’s Earth Day celebration:

Incoming TK student?
Hi Jefferson families,
Do you have an incoming TK student? Let’s get in touch! Curious to know who is going to what campus and how Jefferson families can support each other.
I have heard from last year’s families that you can request bus service from Jefferson, but need to start asking around now.
Email me and I will put together a group for us: email@example.com
