Happy Friday Thomas Jefferson Families!!!! 

My apologies for not updating the Blog last week, it was a super busy week filled with FUN!  Thank you so much for coming out to StarStruck!  What a show and thanks for being such an amazing audience!  There is nothing better than watching our STARS shine.  It is a pleasure to watch them SHINE in the classroom and on the stage!  If you are still interested in purchasing a DVD of the show please stop by the office!



Thank you so much for those who were able to make it to Denim and Diamonds!  It was a HUGE success with over $5000 raised for our stars!


 As we end our school year we have MUCH to do and we are going to continue to provide quality instruction while having FUN!

Have a wonderful weekend!

CAASPP UPDATE - Testing HAS BEGUN!



Thomas Jefferson students in grades 3-5 will be taking the statewide achievement test (CAASPP) during the months of April and May. This test is given each year to gather data on the growth and achievement of our students in Language Arts, Math, and Science in grade 5. It is also a great opportunity to discover areas of strength and growth in our instructional practices school-wide. This year, all students will be testing in the morning and we will have grade levels testing on a staggered schedule throughout the month. Thank you for making sure your child is at school and on time each day and for encouraging them to do their best and show what they know! 

SPRING BREAK IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!
APRIL 15-19, 2019 SCHOOL WILL NOT BE IN SESSION.
APRIL 22, 2019 IS A PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT DAY AND THEIR WILL BE NO SCHOOL.

Happy Spring!

We have a VERY busy STAR-filled week ahead of us!  We have StarStruck, Spring Pictures and,  Awards Assemblies, not to mention a fire drill that will be thrown into the mix!  Our Stars have been working very hard practicing their dances and are READY to perform!  The dances have been created so that each Star shines and it is important that they stay for BOTH performances.  We appreciate your flexibility!  If you have not purchased tickets for this Star Studded Event ticket are available in the office during office hours, 7:30 am - 4:00 pm; TICKETS WILL NOT BE SOLD AT THE DOOR.

STUDENT SAFETY: Please remember that the loop is for drop off and pick up.  Please ensure that there is a fluid movement of traffic and that you are pulling up to the front if the loop to pick up your child.  Please do not ask your child to walk to the end of the loop for pick up and then pull out to to the flow of traffic.  This creates a safety issue with people who are crossing the parking lots.  The staff has been instructed to hold students at the front of the loop for their safety and for the safety of pedestrians.  Thank you for looking out for the safety of ALL of our Stars.

Bike and Scooters:  Please remind your Star that if they are riding their bike or scooter to school that they must wear a helmet and that they need to WALK their bike while on campus.  

Thank you for your collaboration and dedication to our TJ community!

💙,
Mrs. Acke
