On behalf of our Jefferson family impacted by a devastating house fire on December 22nd, I want to extend our sincere gratitude to each and every one of you. In the hours and days following this event, in the midst of your own holiday celebrations, so many of you reached out via phone call, email, text message, Facebook, and Twitter with the same question. What can we do to help? As a result, the family has been inundated with clothes, gift cards, Christmas presents, places to stay, offers to store items while they seek a permanent residence, and so much more. To say they have been humbled and overwhelmed by your extraordinary kindness, thoughtfulness, and seemingly endless generosity would be an understatement. From all of us at Jefferson Elementary School, thank you for your tremendous support of one of our own and all you do on a daily basis to care for one another. We’re all so incredibly fortunate to be part of this special community. Wishing you all the very best in 2018!
