Welcome to Jefferson Elementary School

Witches, goblins and ghosts, oh my! Jefferson families enjoyed a spooktacularly good time at the PTO's Halloween Party on Friday, October 23rd. Our brave students dared to enter the Haunted Hallway (most survived). Kids competed in Eyeball Races, bowled for ghosts, pinned the spider on the weband played many other fun games. Delicious homemade baked goods kept the Treat Walk running all night. Thank you, bakers! And thank you to the wonderful volunteers who cheerfully donated their time. Parents, we appreciate your support and hope to see you again next year.

Happy Halloween!

Jefferson PTO held a Penny War, Labels for Education, and Coke Rewards competition January 26 – January 30, 2015.  Jefferson Elementary teachers and staff volunteered to take part in this event where the losing teacher would get pied at a general assembly Friday, February 13, 2015.

The students really enjoyed contributing and predicting which teacher would get a pie in the face.  In the end, Mrs. Klawitter, Ms. Schwantes, and Ms. Strieff were our lucky participants.  This event earned approximately $240.

Special thank you the staff that volunteered and PTO members, Becky Kikkert and Amanda Benzing for managing this event.
