Thomas Jefferson Elementary PTA

TJ -“One Terrific Journey” Our population of approximately 460 encompasses students of many diverse backgrounds and cultures in kindergarten through sixth grade.

We strive to provide the kind of individual attention that encourages students both academically and socially and makes our large school seem like a smaller, more personal one. Thomas Jefferson’s mission is to empower our students to be self-motivated, world-class learners who demonstrate respect, responsibility, and commitment to academic excellence. Our motto is “One Terrific Journey,” and staff

MEET THE TEACHER!!

*********
From Dr. Sasso:

Meet the Teacher is next week Tuesday, August 17 from 8:30-9:30. If you are a veteran parent you know the hour is pretty busy with everyone coming into the school with their supplies and introducing themselves to their child's teacher.

In order to make the hour a little less hectic, I'm asking families that have flexibility in their schedule to come at a designated time.

If your child's last name starts with the letter A-M, please try to come between 8:30-9:00.

If your child's last name starts with the letter N-Z, please try to come between 9:00-9:30.

Do not worry if you cannot change your schedule and are only able to make it to the school at the other time slot. I'm just trying to limit the congestion as much as possible.

Also, while walking in the school, please walk on the right side of the hallway and stairs. This will also make it easier for everyone to move around more efficiently.

Finally, it's important for all of us that everyone is wearing a mask while in the school building.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Sharing some great local info (this is not a PTA event)!

Willowcreek South Barrington is hosting a BackPack Bash!! They are collecting donations of school supplies and backpacks which will then be donated directly local families who would benefit from these gifts! The kids get to pick out their own stuff! How cool is that?!?

See the images for shopping list items, if you’re interested! Items can be dropped off at the Willowcreek Care Center between now and August 8. See the Blue image for info on how families in need can access these items!
