On Monday October 20th, the children took part in a KINDNESS ASSEMBLY where they listened to a reading of “HOW FULL IS YOUR BUCKET?” to further understand the importance of kindness and doing for others.

The Jefferson School Creative Writing Club, coordinated by Mrs. Johnson published written pieces from some of our third, fourth, and fifth grade students. The club met once a week since February and spent a great deal of time in developing, editing, and collaborating together to generate the finished piece they could be proud of. The love of writing was on display with the children and we hope you enjoy the first version of the Jefferson School Bear Tracks! Click the title to read more.
