Dear Parents,

Welcome to the spring semester! We look forward to meeting the challenges and goals that 2017 present to our staff and students. As we begin the new semester, I would like to remind you of the following information. Report cards were distributed to all students Friday, January 6. If you need an additional copy of your child’s report card, please contact the main office.

Our academic honors brunch will be held Thursday, February 2. Students who qualify to receive a red, white, or blue academic incentive card from the fall semester will receive their cards and be recognized during this program. Invitations will be sent out to all qualifying students prior to the brunch. Parents are invited to attend the recognition program in the auditorium on February 2. We greatly appreciate all of the many sponsors in the Jefferson Community and the Jefferson Education Foundation who enthusiastically support our incentive program.

Interim progress reports will be posted on the parent portal Friday, February 3. Please be aware that student academic course grades and attendance information are available on the parent portal every day at all times.

Our next SAT Test Prep will begin on Tuesday, January 17 at 8:30 am – 11:00 am in the Arena Seminar Room. SAT Test Prep meets four days prior to each SAT Test for 2.5 hours each day in preparation of the test, which takes place on Saturdays. If your student is registered for the January 21 SAT, or is planning to take the SAT on another test date this school year, they need to see Dr. Corbett or Ms. Partain. to enroll in SAT Test Prep. There is no cost for participation and our data consistently shows that students score higher on the SAT if they have successfully completed this preparation opportunity.

FIRE sessions will begin on Monday, January 23 for the spring semester. Students have an opportunity to receive remediation or enrichment on a daily basis through the FIRE program.

If you are in need of additional information about any programs or policies at Jefferson High school please do not hesitate to contact me or a member of my staff.
