February 2016 Newsletter Article

The words we speak are incredibly powerful. Used the right way, words can bring smiles to our faces, give us a sense of purpose and warmth, and bring encouragement to one another. Used incorrectly, words can cause tears, disappointment, and be crushing to our hopes and dreams. Thankfully at Jefferson Elementary School we focus on displaying respect, being responsible, and acting safely each and every day. This past week the school has participated in “The Great Kindness Challenge.” We encouraged everyone to perform as many kind deeds as possible with our words and actions.

We are now in the heart of winter. The evenings are chilly, and we find ourselves often stuck inside. This is a perfect time to cuddle up with a good book. I would challenge everyone to find at least 20-30 minutes a night to make reading a priority. Create the right atmosphere by putting down the devices and turning off the television. If time allows, model your own excitement for reading by reading with your child or reading a good book of your own. Take some time to talk to your child about what s/he is reading. If you’d like more suggestions about reading with your child[ren], check out “Fun Ways to Read with Your Child.”

Thank you for your continued support. It takes a team effort to help our children grow, and you are a critical component. It is an honor and privilege to be a part of this amazing school community!

Jefferson Delivers Winter Joy to Grace Village

Twenty-four students from three Family Groups represented all of Jefferson Elementary by delivering snowmen door decorations to neighboring Grace Village Retirement Community. The snowmen were constructed during an all-school Family Group activity prior to Christmas Break.

The Grace Village residents are always pleased to see our Jefferson Spartans and love receiving the handmade gifts. Students are led through the various dining areas and are instructed to give a decoration to each resident. What happens beyond this is truly beautiful: confident children, sharing smiles, hugs, and brief conversations with folks who sincerely appreciate the interactions.
