PTA Email Listservs -- Subscribe Here!

The Jefferson PTA sponsors two e-mail lists ("listservs"). The first, "TJMS", is the main way the PTA will communicate and we urge everyone to sign up ASAP. This email will be used to provide information on activities and issues and will be used for announcements from Jefferson staff or the PTA. To join this group, send a blank e-mail to tjms-subscribe@yahoogroups.com or click here:

The second e-mail list, "Jefferson Chat", is a lively forum for informal, interactive communications among PTA members and other friends of Jefferson. Topics or issues that affect some or all of the Jefferson families are appropriate. Compliments or concerns, questions or comments about school activities or things happening in our neighborhoods... all are appropriate.
