About the Jefferson PTA

The Jefferson PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is entering our 96th year of leadership in supporting Jefferson students, teachers, and parents. The PTA budget for 2017-2018 is $219,800, which goes to support our children’s field trips, science and outdoor garden programs, technology, arts programs, noon monitors, and school supplies.


You will hear about the many ways the PTA supports these programs in the coming days and weeks. In the meantime, copies of a handout with key fundraising opportunities and events are on the bulletin board opposite the Main Office.

How the PTA Communicates

The PTA shares information via email to the Jefferson Parents' Yahoo group, through this Jefferson website, on the Jefferson facebook page, at our monthly PTA meetings, in the Wednesday Envelopes, and on the white board opposite the Main Office.

Treasurer's Report
The PTA presents a monthly Treasurer's report at our PTA meetings with a breakdown of expenditures and revenues. You can find copies of each month's report on the bulletin board opposite the Main Office and distributed at monthly PTA meetings.

Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteer signup lists are posted on the bulletin board opposite the Main Office.  There is definitely something for everyone, and the jobs are spread across the school year.  We will be setting up online signups soon!
