Dear Jefferson Community,


On behalf of the 2021-2022 Jefferson PTA Board, we would like to extend a warm welcome to all new and returning families!


The Jefferson PTA strives to bring our school community together to share thoughts, ideas, and provide information and resources through weekly newsletters, family programs, parent meetings, and community-building events. We also work hard to bring cultural arts programming to Jefferson through visiting musicians, storytellers, and STEAM-related experiences.


We know that this school year will be different than those in the past, but our goal is to keep you informed and be a resource for information. We hope that you will join us on this journey! 


Partner with us as we work to brainstorm and provide activities throughout the school year:

  • REGISTER at for access to information about Jefferson Elementary School, the school calendar & directory, and important links to the South Orange Maplewood District website. *Please note* that registering is different than becoming a PTA member, you do NOT have to be a PTA member to register...though we hope you will!
  • Consider volunteering by reviewing our Volunteer Opportunities Form to see the many ways you can get involved.
  • Become a Member while visiting our site. Create or renew your membership to the Jefferson PTA. Your support of the PTA is vital so that we may continue to support our teachers and staff with engaging speakers, exciting field trips, and the artist/author-in-residence programs, just to name a few. Remember you must renew your membership every year! 

We are incredibly proud of our students and hope that you will join us as we work to share the South Orange and Maplewood spirit celebrating community, art, culture, diversity and all that makes Jefferson Elementary such an exciting place to learn!


All the Best,


2021-2022 Jefferson PTA Board


Erika Malgieri | President
