A message from our principal
I want to welcome you to the school year. Here at Jefferson we are embracing the theme of Be the Change that we began last year. What does that mean for our J-Hawk students? It means that they are the ones in control of their paths. We have been through an unprecedented time over the last few years, and although it has been difficult, it also has taught us that we can do great things. Likewise, it has provided us with a unique opportunity to re-envision our places here at Jefferson. We at Jefferson believe that now is the time to become an even more exciting and purposeful school, and get all students moving towards their destiny. But we can’t do that alone; we need a few things from you. We need to know how to get you pointed in the right direction, so let us know your dreams. We also need to know what obstacles you see in front of you. That way we can work with you to overcome them. Together we can make great things happen.
It’s Great to be a J-Hawk! #JeffBleedBlue! #westsidebestside! These are some of the most popular chants and sayings you will hear this year as we welcome everyone back to the building. How can you make it even better? By taking a step further and getting (more) involved, trying new things, to Be the Change in getting J-Hawks to come together and live those sayings. Now is the time!
