The month of October is filled with a variety of activities. Our much-anticipated Spartan Shuffle will take place this week on Friday, October 2. Thank you to everyone who donated to this event, which is our PTO’s main fundraiser for the entire year.
Our UNDEFEATED(!) Volleyball & Soccer Teams will both play in the City Championship on Monday, October 5, beginning at 5pm. These games will be played at Harrison. Come on out to support our Spartans! Admission is $1 for 7th grade - adults.
Our “Jefferson’s Got Talent” Variety Show is scheduled for Thursday, October 8, at 7pm in the cafeteria. Our students have been working hard to create an exciting, talent-filled evening. All of the evening’s proceeds will be donated to “Feed My Starving Children Warsaw Mobilepack.” Admission is $1 per person or $5 for a family. Of course, you may also donate more towards this worthwhile cause, if you are able.
Speaking of FMSC, many of us are planning to volunteer to pack meals at “Feed My Starving Children Warsaw Mobilepack,” which will take place October 14-17 at the Gordon Rec Center, across the street from Jefferson. Find more details here: www.warsawmobilepack.com.
Also mark your calendars for Tuesday, October 27, for Jefferson's Fall Family Night from 5:30-7pm. Come enjoy snacks, games, and free books for students. We look forward to seeing our students and their families together for this great event.
Our Family Groups are planning for two meetings this month. Student leaders will be reading a favorite children’s book during one session. The following week, each Family Group will decorate a pumpkin to match a favorite character from their book. These will be on display during the Fall Family Night and will then be donated to Combined Community Services.
We will be sending more details home in the near future related to Parent/Teacher Conferences, coming up on October 20 and 21. And then we will all get some nice time off to reenergize during Fall Break on October 22 and 23.
Enjoy October! What a full, fun month!
