to the 2019-2020 School year! It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that I
write this message as your new principal. I am so excited to be able to start
the new school year with each and every one of you. The outstanding students, teachers, support
staff, and parent volunteers make Jefferson a special place. It is an
incredible honor to have been selected to serve at Jefferson as your
Jefferson Elementary has a long tradition of academic excellence. In 2018 Jefferson was named a California Distinguished School, and in 2019 Jefferson received the California Business Excellence in Education Award. We feel that our parent and community involvement is essential to the ongoing success at Jefferson. I welcome you to participate whenever possible. Please check with your child’s teacher, our office staff, or our Parent Club for information on how to stay involved in your child’s education. I believe that collaboration between parents, teachers, and community is the most effective way of getting students to achieve their potential.
Elementary, student safety is paramount.
Our staff is committed to providing a safe nurturing learning
environment where students feel a sense of belonging while they are challenged
academically. Our School is taking a step to strengthen our campus
safety program for students and faculty by introducing a new visitor
management system. The Raptor Visitor Management System will better allow
us to screen visitors and volunteers in our schools to promote security on our
campus and will require a simple change in our check-in processes when you
forward to getting to know every family at Jefferson. Please contact me if you
ever have a question or concern.
