Double your money for Jefferson!

Have you contributed to the Giving Campaign yet? A group of Jefferson families have just pledged to match donations up to $7,000. Now is the time to donate and double your money! Contributions support core school programming that make Jefferson a great place for our kids to learn, play and grow! We need your support today to make sure essential programs can continue for next year. Put a check made out to Jefferson PTA in the locked PTA box in the office, or donate online at http://jefferson.berkeleypta.org/.

Another way to look at it: What do you get for the price of a week of camp?

What do you get at Jefferson for the price of a week of summer camp? The Jefferson PTA spends $300 per child per year to make sure all of our kids are getting the great education they deserve. That means classroom grants for all those cool projects we saw at open house; field trips to Camp Arroyo, art museums, the symphony and more; PE instruction; Dave Nettell’s Cooperative Adventures; and vital services like English-language development and counseling.

GIVING CAMPAIGN – Thanks to those who have already donated to the Giving Campaign.  You can continue to donate online on the PTA website, http://jefferson.berkeleypta.org/

A’s game

The rained out Jefferson day at the ball on April 16 has been rescheduled for Saturday, Sept 10.  Everybody with a ticket needs to get a new one. We will be distributing tickets at drop off June 13-15 from 8:00-8:30. Bring your old ticket and we will exchange it.  If you can’t find you old tickets, no worries. Just come and let us know. If you can’t attend those dates please let Candace know (travelmoregroup@gmail.com) and we will work out other arrangements.  We will also offer refunds if you can no longer attend.  Any leftover tickets will be available for sale to the incoming Kindergarten class at the K/1 playdate.

5th Grade Promotion Ceremony

Marked your calendars for the 5th grade promotion ceremony.  It will take place on Thursday, June 15th from 8:45 to about 10:00, and then a brunch/celebration (hosted by the 4th grade parents) will take place on the yard afterward. You can pull siblings out of class for the ceremony, and there are no restrictions on how many family members can attend.  Please let me know if you have any questions (loribhess@aol.com) and make sure to pack some tissues! :)

Teacher Appreciation Lunch

Sign up to bring a dish to the teacher appreciation lunch to celebrate our amazing and hard-working teachers, this Friday.  You can bring a dish to drop-off or at 1:30 to the Library. http://www.SignUpGenius.com/go/4090F4FAAAB22A31-teacher
