A Message from Ms. Buchanan

Dear Patriot Families,

March has definitely been a month that started out with beautiful weather and with the longer days it has been a lot of fun for students to be outside. I am hoping that families have been able to get out and enjoy it as well. I know that in my family, bike tires were pumped up and spring cleaning has begun. Something about sunny days and a warm breeze brings out our energy. 

Looking ahead to this month we are looking forward to having Opera for the Young at Jefferson and K-5 mash-up families. We also have our PTO movie night on Friday, March 13. Also, if you can believe it, the end of third quarter is on March 20! Where did the year go?!?

I am looking forward to seeing everyone when they return from spring break and hearing stories of relaxation with family and friends.

With Patriot Pride,
Rhonda Buchanan
Jefferson Elementary Principal

Important Reminders

As the weather turns Colder and the winter wind whips briskly, we wanted to remind families to please send their children to school with the appropriate cold weather clothing.  WARM winter adidas_Men's_WINTER STORY_OT-TECH GORE-TEX HOODED JACKET_E… | Flickr, Gloves - Free illustrations on Pixabay& Free vector graphic: Cap, Cloth, Clothing, Education - Free Image ...  are needed now that temperatures are falling.  Unfortunately, the school does not have enough of these items to hand them out to students who come without the necessary clothing.

Looking for something fun to do on early release days? Join your neighbors at First English for “Early Out Wednesday”. In March we will celebrate St. Patrick's day with Toy Story 4 and some special snacks and St. Patrick's day games.

As soon as school ends, students may enter First English through the marked 10th Ave parking lot door. Once participating, students must stay inside until either a parent picks them up or the program concludes promptly at 4:00. Contact Kay at 231-9890 or with any questions. Hope to see you there!
