Welcome Back Jefferson Jaguars
This past year we were able to graduate our ninth class at Jefferson High School and are very excited about the beginning of our tenth school year at JHS. As we begin our new year, we hope that you and your student will help JHS continue with its rich tradition of academic excellence and school pride for all to follow. An exceptional faculty and staff are looking forward to working with each of you and your students and are excited to establish and achieve your goals and aspirations for your child. Please take time to review the school handbook carefully that your student will be bringing home after the first day. It contains important information that can be helpful to your whole family. This handbook includes information that pertains to Jefferson High School student policies, as well as District 6 board policies.
I also want to remind you that our teachers, counselors, and administrators are available to provide assistance. Your questions or concerns are always welcome. As your student works through their years at JHS, I challenge every student to set goals and standards that will be above those set by most high school students. In accomplishing these exceptional goals, your child will make a “real difference” in our world and set the pace for developing a high school culture that will be second to none.
We would also like to invite any parent to get involved in our school and the many programs that we have available at Jefferson High. One way to be involved is to serve on our District Accountability Committee as well as the School Accountability Committee. These committees allow parents and community members to be informed and have a voice in changes to our schools programming and budgeting. If you are interested in becoming a member of either committee please contact me at 348-1609 to receive dates and times of meetings.
In closing, I want to wish each of you the very best as “The Tradition Continues” at Jefferson High School.Larry Green,Principal, Jefferson High School
District 6 Headlines
“When I first met Mark at back-to-school night, he didn’t make eye contact. School was clearly not an area of confidence for him. Over the last two quarters, we at Jefferson Jr. have had the privilege of watching Mark gain confidence and blossom as an individual. When we share positive stories about students during staff meetings, Mark’s name and humor come up weekly. This growth is recognized by his peers, too. Mark has a supportive social network in the classroom and a wide audience for his appropriate humorous comments. From an outside perspective, Mark finds intrinsic value in the productive struggle of learning. Mark should be very proud of what he is accomplishing; we at Jefferson Junior definitely are.” – Zachary Guillaume, Math Teacher
