Hello Jefferson 5th Grade Families 


Welcome back to Jefferson! Though we know this year is different and we are uncertain of what events we are able to have this year, we are going to try our hardest to make this a great year for our kids! 5th grade is such a special time and we want to make their last year of elementary school full of fun before they head off to middle school! 

With the shift to virtual learning and the postponement/cancellation of many events, we have updated our page with the most important dates and events below listed with the most relevant events at the top and their descriptions underneath. Check back as we add events during the school year. 


If you have any questions, suggestions or ideas, please reach out to the 5th Grade team; Natasha Maguire, Anna Liza Montenegro and Jaclyn Spoerel at 5thgradeprojects@jefferson-pta.org

Yearbook Pictures Needed

We are gearing up to get started on our 5th grade yearbook and, because we can't hold the typical events for at least the next few months, we are counting on you to capture some great moments and send us photos, so we can create an amazing book of memories for our kids. 


Please send your photos to yearbook@jefferson-pta.org. When sending your photos, please tell us your child's name and their homeroom teacher. If there are other students in the photo, please include their full name as well.


Yearbook Consent for Publicity/Photo Release

We need your consent to publish photos of your child in the yearbook.  Click here to complete the Consent for Publicity/Photo Release.


Yearbook Volunteers Needed! 

Please contact Yearbook Chairs Nicole Sinclair and/or Beth Ceglio at yearbook@jefferson-pta.org if you are interested in volunteering for the positions below:

  1.  Photographer - (Pending a decision regarding the school format) photograph staff members (if needed), photograph 5th graders with teachers during events and/or in the classroom, take candid photos of students at any remaining events this school year, including the 5th grade class photo after t-shirts arrive in April.
  2.  Coordinator of Teacher & Principal Letters - Request letters from the principal/assistant principal and from each 5th grade teacher, and follow up to make sure their letters are submitted. These letters are from teachers to their classes and will be displayed in the yearbook.
  3.  Photo Organizer - as photos are submitted by 5th grade families, they will be saved onto a database. The photo organizer will organize photos by event or holiday (e.g. Halloween, dance party, etc.) and tag students.
  4.  Student Survey & Class Song - Coordinate class song with Music teacher and obtain a copy of school song, send student survey to teachers to disseminate to students, track students survey completion.
  5.  Project & Photo Assembly (multiple volunteers needed) - help select photos for the yearbook with all events and students represented.  Organization and knowledge of students’ names in school is helpful.   


 We look forward to a great year! Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
