PTA fundraising efforts directly support the school by paying for additional items that might not be part of the school's original budget. We thereby help Principal Hutchinson and her staff to stretch district funds and give our children a great classroom experience that fosters creativity, academic excellence, respect, and intellectual curiosity.


Please consider making a donation to Jefferson School PTA to help us make the school the best place for our kids to learn and grow. Donations of any size are more than welcome; below is some indication of how we spend the funds we collect:


$50 supports gardening and indoor/outdoor beautification projects at Jefferson. 


$100 supports us in ensuring every student participates in events like Picture Day, Book Fair, class Field Trips, and 5th Grade Graduation events. 


$200 supports our efforts to keep Jefferson families informed through our new website and the platforms that support the technology advances for our school community.


$500 supports PTA funded teacher grants. 


$1,000 supports special education enhancement at Jefferson. 


$2,000 supports Cultural Arts Assemblies and allows the PTA to bring a diverse group of speakers, artists, authors, and musicians to Jefferson.
