All was quiet at Jefferson Elementary yesterday afternoon. Classrooms were crisp and fresh with the newness of the beginning of the school year. By the time you read this, teachers and students will be filling the building with great anticipation about the new school year. Students will be greeted with open arms by smiling teachers. The smell of fresh crayons and new books will will fill the air, and the quiet hum of computers and white boards is a prelude to a new year of learning. A new curriculum is being rolled out and we think you will like it.
To all the parents of Kindergarteners who are having their first day of school. Be happy for your child as s/he begins the school adventure. Volunteer every chance you get. The more you give the more you will feel connected. And please DO NOT SPEED in the school zone. First and foremost, you want to keep the students safe. And......the fine is $438; not exactly pocket change. Equally important.... stop for those stopped school busses. Welcome back everyone!
