Dear Jefferson Community,

On behalf of the 2017-2018 Jefferson PTA Board, I 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 eblasts, the Jefferson Journal, 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.  As we work to ensure that there will be many wonderful activities throughout the school year,  we hope that you will consider volunteering for one or more of these fun events.  Click here to see the many ways you can get involved.

Click here today to create or renew your membership to the Jefferson PTA and sign-up for our weekly newsletter to stay in the know. 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.    

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