I can hardly believe that there are only 8 days of school left of this academic year!  It is such a busy time of year filled with signature events that fill our hearts with pride and create fond school memories that will be cherished for a lifetime.  The last days are PACKED with activity.  We will be celebrating our Stars who have PERFECT attendance, our Citizenship Character Awards, Field Day, Fifth grade and Kindergarten promotion and of course learning and fun! 
Let's make the last 8 days count!

This survey is being conducted to collect information from parents about school effectiveness and parent satisfaction. Please complete one survey per child attending Thomas Jefferson. This helps us address grade level concerns or recognize grade level strengths. Please respond to each statement based on your overall experience with our school. A composite of the surveys will be shared with the School Site Council, but individual responses will be kept confidential. In preparation for this survey, we encourage you to ask your children about their experiences at school.

You can find the Parent Survey HERE.  Thank you for taking the time to fill it out. Please print out the confirmation screen or take a screenshot and return your confirmation image to your child's teacher and your student will get 5 Starbucks!



We are looking for parents to join our School Site Council for the 2018-19 school year.  As a member of the Site Council, you commit to serving for two years.  We will meet 4-5 times during the school year to review the School Site Plan (goals and spending), the Safety Plan, and we will develop the Parent Survey for the school year and review the data.  This is a great opportunity to get involved with the school. 

Please e-mail Kirsten Acke at kthomas-acke@rcsdk8.org if you are interested.  Thank you!
