    Welcome to Thomas Jefferson Middle School's News and Information Page:
     Where Attitude, Attendance and Achievement are our goals!
     
      
    Today is Friday November 17th and it is a BLUE DAY.
     
    Good Morning Thomas Jefferson: A straight "A" School where Attitude, Attendance and Achievement are our goals.
    Did you know... Attendance is a critical factor in any child's school success? Children should attend school every day, except in cases of illness or emergency. It is impossible to replace the learning that happens on any school day with make-up work. Regular attendance and promptness are good habits that are expected and appreciated at all levels of schooling and in the workplace. This year, make school a priority. Commit to excellence in attendance. Your future depends on it. 
     
    Thanksgiving Break will be Wednesday, Nov. 22nd through Friday, Nov. 24th (school will be dismissed). 
     
    Be sure to check LOST & FOUND for missing items. All items not claimed by Friday, December 1st, will be donated to charity.
     
    The STEAM afterschool program and the Boys & Girls Club Teen Center will be closed on Early Release Days.
