WELCOME to the Jefferson Parent-Teacher Association for 2014-2105.  For parents and guardians of students in every grade, the PTA offers a great opportunity to be involved in issues affecting your child's academic and social growth. We want to provide you with opportunities to engage with teachers, administrators and fellow parents.  We hope that you will become a member of the PTA and actively participate in the many programs we sponsor that directly benefit all children at Jefferson.  Research shows that parental involvement is one of the most critical factors affecting a child's success in school and we want to make sure all families feel welcomed and supported.
