Good evening, Jefferson Families! We hope you and your children are having a wonderful school year! As you may know, we have many fun events coming up. We all know that the weeks ahead can be hectic, and that is why we want to share these now so that you can put them on your calendars. We hope you will be able to join us at each and every one! Additionally, we are ALWAYS in need of people to offer a bit of their time and/or to contribute items to make each of these events go smoothly.
1) BOOK FAIR (Tues. 12/3 – Sat. 12/7) – The Scholastic Book Fair is always an exciting time at Jefferson! Please consider signing up to help our students choose books of interest and make purchases at the register. Please click the link below and scroll down the list of time slots. (There will be a lot of scrolling!) You will see that there are LOTS of opportunities throughout the week. There are morning, afternoon, evening, and weekend time slots available. It’s easy and a lot of fun! Click here to sign up to help with the BOOK FAIR.
2) PENNY WARS (Tues. 12/3 – Sat. 12/7) – Penny Wars is always a much anticipated annual event at the school! It is lots of fun and takes place all week in the school lobby. Students (and parents) bring spare change and plan their strategy – each penny is a positive point for each student’s own class, BUT silver coins take points away from other classes, so plan your change drops wisely! The class with the highest value in change at the end of the week wins a pizza party!
(Paper money doesn’t count for or against your class’s total, but the class with the highest dollar amount of paper money will get a special prize – to be determined soon!)
Your role is to help students decide where to strategically place their coins to help their class win the Penny Wars! There is often a large crowd of kids around the jars in the morning, so your help with this event is crucial! Please see link below to find time slots where help is needed. These are weekday morning slots only. Click here to sign up to help with PENNY WARS.
Thank you in advance for offering your time and/or donations to help make these events fun and successful. You can also go to the Volunteer Opportunities page under the “Do Good!” tab on the website to find the links for these and other volunteer opportunities. If you have any questions about these items, please feel free to contact us at jeffersonPTCepsd@gmail.com and someone will respond to you as soon as possible. Thank you for all that you do to make Jefferson such a wonderful place for our families! We are all a part of the PTC!
