Principal's Message

  • Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year here at Jefferson School. It is AMAZING to be back and working together with all of our students. We are so proud of our relationship with our learning community and are thankful for the opportunity to work with our students each day.

    Please look at the school year as a marathon and not a sprint. We are laser focused on small, incremental improvements in our foundational skills in each subject area. Our theme this year is “BETTER THAN YESTERDAY”.   We continue to work towards daily improvements and understand that tomorrow is another opportunity to continue on the path of improvement.  Another area of high importance is the social, emotional well being of our children.  Through daily activities working on the development of the whole child, we are looking to strengthen students' confidence and develop strong skills to continue to grow socially and emotionally.

    Our academic program aligns with the NJSLS to help prepare our children for a strong transition as they gradually move into the MS. With a distinct focus on developing and strengthening foundational skills in all subject areas, we push everyday for maximum effort to improve everyday. Marathons take a long time to complete. Treat the school year just like that and let's enjoy the journey towards improvement.

    Finally, as a strong community school, we are thrilled to have such incredible parent support to help raise funds, coordinate fun activities, and to partner with to enhance our children's educational experience. Be sure to join the JSPA to have a say in, participate in, and enjoy the quality experiences at Jefferson School. Year after year we promote a simple phrase that we try to live out as educators, students, and parents, WORK HARD AND BE KIND.
