Welcome to Jefferson Elementary School!

JES Parents,

It is with great excitement and expectation that I welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year at Jefferson Elementary. We are honored to serve your precious children and promise to do our very best to provide each student with a safe and nurturing environment where they can thrive and reach their highest potential.

Aligned with the Jefferson City School System, our vision at JES is to provide high-quality education that offers every individual their own opportunities for success through sound curriculum and research-based practices. When teachers and families partner together to support student achievement with intention and consistency, children attend school more regularly, experience academic progress and are more motivated students.

We believe that this family-school partnership, along with a warm and joyful school environment, will foster a love for learning. Please look for opportunities to engage with our school in varied and new ways throughout the school year. Your child’s education is of the utmost importance to us. I am so humbled and honored to work alongside a talented and qualified staff for my second year as principal and look forward to an amazing school year. Thank you for partnering with us and trusting us with your child. 

Truly yours,

Chrissy Joiner
