Jog-a-thon Donation Collections

The running is over, so now is the time to send in those Jogathon donations. Many families have sent them in already, and we really appreciate those who have done so.

Jogathon is the biggest fundraiser of the year at Jefferson Elementary, and helps fund things like the Jag Band, the upcoming 5th Grade Musical, Field Trips, various Jefferson Clubs, the Library and much more.

If you haven’t had a chance to collect and send in those pledges, take a few moments now to do so. Even a few dollars will help make a difference.

Thank you!

Your Jogathon Team
Rorie & Meagan

Weather Make Up Days Announced

Due to last week’s two cancellation days, the school year will be extended two days to make up the instructional time missed. March 15 will not be used as a make-up day as some of our elementary schools have already scheduled conferences. School will be in session on the following days:

  • June 14 will be a regular early release for elementary and middle schools, it will not be an early release for high schools.
  • June 17 and 18 will be used as make-up days. (June 7 High School Graduation remains the same)
  • June 18 will be the last day of school with extra-early release (2-hour early release) for all grades.

In the event of additional weather cancellation days this year, the superintendent will make a decision to utilize the June 19, 20, and 21 possible make-up days.

Helping Hands Food Drive

The Helping Hands Club is organizing and carrying out a food drive at Jefferson!

If you have some extra money, we would love it if you could donate some canned, non-perishable food or personal hygiene supplies. It will go to the Corvallis Welcome Center, who will hand it out to needy families.

Bring the food and/or personal hygiene supplies to Jefferson between March 5 and March 15.

Thanks for helping our community!
