Dear Jefferson Families,
Pending Board approval on Monday, March 22nd, I’m pleased to announce that Mrs. Michele James will join our Jefferson family as our interim principal for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year beginning Monday, March 29th.
Mrs. James currently serves the East Penn School District as our Supervisor of Elementary Curriculum & Instruction, a position in which she already collaborates with our Jefferson staff on a regular basis. Mrs. James has been a proud East Penn resident for nearly three decades. She is the mom of two Emmaus High School graduates and has worked in the district in various teaching and administrative capacities for 26 years. Previously, Mrs. James spent time as the interim principal at Wescosville Elementary School. Please join me in welcoming Mrs. James to our Jefferson family!
My last official day at Jefferson will be Monday, March 29th. Between now and then, Mrs. James and I will be working closely together to ensure a transition for our students, staff, and families that is smooth and seamless. Meanwhile, if the potential for students to return to school five days a week becomes a reality, I plan to be present in the building to greet your children upon their return.
I very much appreciate you allowing me to be part of your family’s Jefferson journey these past five years. I wish you all the best and look forward to seeing you and your families again down the road.
