Box Tops

We collect Box Tops!

The JMS PTO collects Box Tops for Education to raise money for our school.

Have your student drop off your Box Tops in the Administrative Office any time.

It's quick, easy, and a great way to help!

Information for Parents

Parent involvement is encouraged and expected at Jefferson. Ways to get involve include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Check your student's agendas daily for assignments, projects, due dates and notes from teachers.
  • Read the monthly newsletter that is mailed to the address that is provided to the school. It contains valuable information; your input and reactions are encouraged. You can also access the most recent version from the JMS main page.
  • Call the school if you have questions and/or concerns about your child's work or issues that involve your child.
  • Attend parent workshops that are held throughout the year, even it just to hear from other parents about the issues important to middle school students.
  • Sign up to be involved in one or more of the activities that require parent input, involvement and time.

Here is a great resource if you are mystified by your student's ever-changing behavior: The Parents' Guide to Middle School.

Community School

Community Schools develop and strengthen partnerships between schools and the communities they serve.  A community school provides processes for student success.


Go to Community School for more info.


Don't forget to call in your absent students

It is your responsibility to notify the school when your student is absent. It's easy! Just call the attendance office at 260-2014 or 255-8691 before 9:30 on the day of the absence. After 2 days the absence automatically becomes unexcused.

If you know in advance that your child is going to be absent, have them ask their teacher for homework. If their absence is extended, more than 3 days, you may request homework from the office. Teachers typically make homework available after 24 hours.
