Jefferson School is a busy learning institution every day. Our 310 students in grades K - 5 grow academically with the help of 54 staff members. Everyone in the building is proud of earning the 2013-2014 School of Promise Academic Recognition Award from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. We have all worked diligently to keep that "promise going" as we were also honored to receive this award in 2009-2010 and 2010-2011. Being a SAGE school allows us to keep class sizes to 18 students to 1 teacher in grades K - 3.
Jefferson School is a very busy place: at 7:30 am, local adult PALs (tutors) begin morning tutoring with students; at 8:00 am, a warm breakfast is provided to students; at 8:30 am, school begins and at 3:07, school ends. Jefferson Junction (our after school program) begins at 3:15 pm with a nutritious snack before almost half of our students participate in recreational, tutorial, acceleration or remediation opportunities. Jefferson Junction ends at 4:45 pm. Jefferson School continues to be busy in the evenings with Cub Scouts, PTO meetings, Good News Club, evening classes for parents (nutritional, computer education, financial), community basketball programs, and monthly Community Meals!
Stop by and visit us at Jefferson School, where every morning the students are reminded by me to "Have a Great Day of Learning at Jefferson School."
