Community-Building Activities

JPAT hosts community-building events and activities to provide Jefferson students, staff, and families the chance to gather for fun, entertainment, and socializing. All Jefferson families are welcome at all events, which include:

First Day of School Welcome
Adults are invited to meet in front of the school for coffee and snacks after the children have gone into the building.

Fall Potluck
Jefferson families come together for a potluck picnic supper during the first weeks of school. This event also kicks off the Direct Donation Drive.

Family Math Night
All Jefferson family members are welcome to come to this community event, where the focus is showing that math is fun!

Sock Hop
The sock hop is a fun night full of music, dancing, and having fun with friends.

Carnival
Be prepared for lots of carnival games, food, a book walk, cake walk, bouncy houses and slides, and prizes! This is a low-cost event that is fun for the whole family.

Multicultural Night 
This exciting evening event includes a potluck of ethnic dishes, performances of international-themed music and dance by Jefferson students and groups from outside the school, and a chance to learn about other cultures.

Spring Book Fair
The spring book fair is a buy-one-get-one-free book fair which we do to benefit our families, as opposed to a fundraiser like the book fair we host in the fall.

Site Beautification
JPAT volunteers work year-round to help keep school grounds looking healthy and beautiful.
