Dear Jefferson Community,


On behalf of the 2018-2019 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.


Partner with us as we work to ensure that there will be many wonderful 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.
  • 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. 

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!


Warm Regards,


2018-2019 Jefferson PTA Board
