December 4-15, 2017 - Hour of Code

Hour of Code
Jefferson students can do computer coding!  Hour of Code originally started as an hour-long intro to computer programming, designed to show students that everyone can code and to expose them to the field of computer science.  The Hour of Code officially happened around the globe during the first week in December, but Jefferson librarian Sarah Cahuas extended the event to two weeks so that every student, from kindergarten through 5th grade, could participate.  A Jefferson parent spoke to some of the students about his career in computer science and said that there are currently more computer programming jobs than people to fill them, a need that is expected to grow in the coming years.


To try some of the Hour of Code games Jefferson students played, visit code.org or kodable.com.   

Now Through December 18, 2017 - Sock Drive

Sock Drive
Jefferson Student Government is sponsoring a sock drive!  Please bring in new socks, any size.  The goal is 1,200 pairs of socks.  All socks will be donated to St. Anthony Foundation's Free Clothing Program.  Socks Rock!

Inclusive Schools WEek
Superintendent Dr. Vincent Matthews says, "At SFUSD we are committed to the practice of inclusive education, which means students are full and accepted members of their school communities and classrooms. . . . The success of every student

November 8, 2017 - Jefferson Family Math Night

Math Night Estimation Jar
At this year's Jefferson Family Math Night, second and third graders and their families had a blast doing math puzzles and games
with the intriguing names of
Poison, Digit Place, Tangrams, Double Compare, Race for a Dollar, Origami Raptor, Close to 100, and Addition Tic Tac Toe 

as well as estimating the number of crayons, cubes, and cotton balls
in the Estimation Jars!

Many thanks to Jefferson teachers Kim Probst and Laura Alonso for organizing this phenomenal event and to the many Jefferson teachers who spent their evening overseeing so many fun and popular stations.

The very talented Shirley Yee in the Main Office decorated these fantastic Halloween pumpkins featuring Uncle Fester, Cousin Itt, Pugsley, Wednesday, Gomez, and Thing from The Addams Family.  Jefferson students will guess the weight of their grade's pumpkin,
and the student who comes closest in each grade wins the pumpkin!
Jefferson celebrates Halloween every year with an
all-school Halloween Costume Parade.

October 23, 2017 - Authors Day

Authors Day 2017
A generous group of children's book authors visited every Jefferson classroom for Authors Day.  Author-illustrator Julie Downing (fifth from right) founded Authors Day 19 years ago when she was a Jefferson parent.  The authors read to or drew for the students and explained the process of writing and illustrating a book.  We are grateful to all of the authors who gave their time and shared their experiences.  We know that many students
were excited and inspired by Authors Day!

October 7-8, 2017 - Hardly Strictly Parking

Hardly Strictly Parking at Jefferson
Park at Jefferson for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass!
We're one of the few pay lots close to the festival, our parking lot is completely fenced in, we monitor the entrance and exit from opening to closing, you can park and lock your car - and won't it be nice to just drive away at the end of the day and not have to deal with the crowds!

Enter the parking lot through the 18th Avenue gate between Irving and Judah.  We're open Saturday, October 7, and Sunday, October 8, from 9:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The price is $35 cash per car per day.
You don't have to pay a cent for festival admission.
Why not spend that money on some really high-quality parking!

Final closing is 8:30 p.m. daily.
Unclaimed cars will be towed at the owner's expense.
Or driven home by untrained but eager elementary school students.

October 4, 2017 - Walk & Roll to School Day

Wednesday, October 4, is Walk & Roll to School Day,
when students in more than 40 countries and in thousands of schools across America all walk to school, bringing attention to safer and more accessible streets and sidewalks, outdoor fun, pedestrian safety,
physical activity, and respect for the environment.

Jefferson is a proud participant in Walk & Roll to School Day 2017!

Walk   Roll to School Day
Jefferson students who walk or roll to school on October 4 may stop by the Middle Yard or the Kindergarten Yard before school starts to pick up some goodies to celebrate their participation in this global event.

Now Let's Walk & Roll!
