Welcome to Jefferson Elementary School!


JES Parents,

It is an honor to serve you and your children at Jefferson Elementary School for the 2024-25 school year. We welcome your student/s with open arms and promise to provide a warm and nurturing environment where they can thrive academically and socially.

As with all Jefferson City Schools, we believe in being intentional and consistent in providing high-quality instruction and high expectations to continue our system’s tradition of excellence. I am proud of our highly qualified teachers and staff, who are committed to providing strong instruction with sound curricula that focuses on developing solid math skills and a rich reading foundation. 

We believe that family-school partnerships  working together in a safe and warm school environment  provide maximum opportunities for success and a love for learning.

We value your role in your child's education and invite you to join us by participating in parent conferences, communicating with teachers, attending special events, supporting learning at home through regular attendance and homework, and reinforcing behavior expectations. Thank you for your support and commitment to your child’s education.

I am humbled to work alongside you this year to make the 2024-25 school year the best one yet!
