Every parent and guardian is welcome to join the Jefferson Parents and Teachers!
Jefferson Parents and Teachers (JPAT) is Jefferson Elementary School’s Parent-Teacher Association (PTA). JPAT is a group of parents and families, teachers and staff, and friends of Jefferson dedicated to the support of our school. JPAT works to:
- provide financial support for educational enhancements that benefit all Jefferson students, including school supplies and discretionary spending for teachers
- build community by organizing a variety of events and activities
- promote clear communication between the school and the home
- recruit volunteers to assist in school and JPAT activities
JPAT appreciates your donations!
Community Building Activities
|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!|
|Dance of the Decades||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.|
|Fall and 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.|
