Please Pre-Register Today

Dear Jefferson School Parent,

It’s hard to believe that we are approaching the end of the 2013-2014 school year. While we are wrapping up this year, we’ve already begun planning for the 2014-2015 school year.

One of the first steps in preparing for next school year is the online pre-registration process. Warsaw Community Schools has opened online pre-registration as of Monday, April 21, 2014. We are requesting that you log into PowerSchool and complete the online pre-registration for each of your WCS students. Pre-registration will need to be completed by Friday, May 30, 2014.

Final registration will take place in each building on the following dates:
July 30, 2014
July 31, 2014
August 1, 2014

The purpose of pre-registering will allow the district to better plan for next year. Pre-registration will also SAVE YOU TIME at final registration. Families that have not pre-registered will have to go through that process in the buildings before moving into the final registration lines.

If you are in need of assistance in completing the online pre-registration, we are here to help. Please contact Dana Stogsdill at 267-7361 with any questions you may have. If you do not plan to return to Jefferson School, please contact our office at the number above.

Thank you in advance for helping us prepare for the 2014-2015 school year.

David Robertson

P.S. You should have received your username/password information in the mail. If you did not or have misplaced it, please call the office at 267-7361.


Honor an Educator

Are you looking for a special and meaningful gift for an educator to show your appreciation for his/her work in the classroom, on the field or court, or at after-school activities? For more information, check out "Honor an Educator" HERE. Submissions are due April 23rd, 2014, for presentation during the week of May 5th, which is Teacher Appreciation Week.


The Jefferson PTO Needs You!

Jefferson’s Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) is a vital part of what we do at Jefferson. Each year our PTO puts on events that either raise funds for our students or provide families with a chance to “have fun” together. The funds they raise each year are critical to providing quality educational programs, as well as providing supplemental supplies for teachers. We are currently recruiting for next year’s PTO board. If you are interested in being a part of this dynamic team, please contact our current president, Melanie Shipley.

Thanks for your consideration.


April Newsletter Article

As we start the month of April, it’s nice to have a week of Spring Break to take time to rest, relax, and recharge. Your students have worked very hard so far this year, and they deserve a break! Thanks also for all you’ve done to make this year a success to this point.

As we look to finish out the last quarter of school, I’m reminded of how important student attendance is. The truth is, every day of school matters! Even though we had a very inconsistent schedule this winter with all the snow days, each of the remaining days is critical to our school’s success. Additionally, it’s been a tough cold-and-flu season, and it’s my hope that with some warmer weather we can return to a more consistent schedule for all of our students.

Because we understand that each remaining day of school is so important, in April we will be starting a Classroom Attendance Contest. In the months of April and May the classroom with the highest attendance rate will win a class party. I will work with the teacher to decide if we do pizza, popcorn or ice cream. It’ll be my way of saying thanks to those students for bringing their best every day! You can help by encouraging your student to be at school every day, only keeping them home if they have a fever or are vomiting, by making sure that a sick student does see a doctor if needed, and by being considerate about when you take family vacations.

As always, the successful education of our students is a team effort. Thanks so much for ensuring that our kids get the best!


Change Changes Lives

Next week we will begin our annual fundraiser for Riley Hospital for Children. We will be working together as a school to raise $550 (or more) to enrich the lives of other children who need medical attention at Indiana’s own hospital that’s just for kids. Collection buckets will be located in the gym lobby each morning before school. Students may bring in change or dollars in any denomination to support this effort. Let’s show Riley Hospital for Children that Jefferson cares by supporting “Change Changes Lives.”

If we reach our goal, we will celebrate as a school. Stay tuned!
