Sept. 28-Oct. 2, 2020

 

Today we celebrated our community of Rising Stars in our Recognition Celebration.  In the months of August and September, we focused on the life skill of Cooperation.  It has been amazing to see our community RISE together in such a powerful way.  

TJ STAR Recognition Celebration!

As we begin to prepare for the upcoming reopening of school, please note that no matter what program you have chosen you are a T.J. Star. All families will receive all T.J. communication and will be kept up to date on our happenings. 

We are carefully planning for our reopening in the Hybrid Model, please be on the lookout for information in regards to social distancing marking, arriving and departing from school, and much more.  We are excited to get started no matter what instructional model your family has chosen.  
We are T.J.!
We R.I.S.E. together!

Happy Friday Thomas Jefferson Stars!

Please look for the Phase III reopening survey from the District that will be emailed to you on Monday, September 14, 2020.  There will be two choices for instruction a yearlong commitment to either Distance Learning or the Hybrid Model.  Further information about each program will be forward to you also.



I know that this week has been a bit gloomy,  the smoke has kept us inside and it has been hard to see the light at the end of the week.  We made it because we are a wonderful community that rises together and brings light to one another. Thank you to our entire community for being a wonderful example of our life skill of the month: Cooperation.


 It has been great to see so many families at the breakfast/lunch pick up door.  If you did not know we are now serving lunch! Meals can be picked up anytime between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm.

Warm regards, 

Kirsten Acke
