Support Jefferson Elementary! 

Help your child be as successful at school as possible. When parents are involved in their child's school kids get better grades, have better behavior, and their confidence increases because they feel supported at home.

At Jefferson there are many opportunities for parents to be a part of the school. Volunteer in a classroom, read to a child, pass out water at the jog-a-thon, or join a school committee.
