Welcome to Thomas Jefferson Middle School

Monday's Matter

This week Wednesday mattered as we started school this Wednesday.  The beginning of the school week is a great opportunity to increase daily attendance and increase student learning! Thomas Jefferson students know the beginning of the week matters as that is when the teachers set the tone for the week's activities. Our students understand the importance of showing up to school, on time, and prepared to learn. Let's encourage them to maintain the high standard of attendance. It would be great to see Attendance Champion flags flying proudly on your flagpoles again next week!  MONDAYS MATTER!!!
Remember, if they are not sick, get them here quick!!!

First Day of School


You will be amazed by how many activities and events we hold at Thomas Jefferson.  Located on the left-hand side you will see a link to "School Events Calendar". You can find important event and contact information on the calendar.  Please take advantage of this important resource.  Also, we would like to extend an open invitation to any and all events.  Be sure during school hours you check in with the office first.


It was great to see the students and parents come out today and find their way around campus.  A BIG WELCOME BACK!!! Teachers did a fine job of engaging students with icebreakers and getting students familiar with routines and procedures.  The students and staff did a wonderful job adjusting to the bell system failure.  Teachers were impressed by the student's sense of urgency to get to class.  Thursday should be just as impressive as today.
