A Message From the Principal      

Dear Parents and Guardians,

All of us at JES want to make this a successful year for your child. Your active support and cooperation, combined with our best professional efforts will ensure academic success for your child.
We are proud of our staff and students and invite you to be involved at JES. Please visit our classrooms, school office, library and playground. There is a spirit of cooperation and progress at our school that we want to share with you.
The goal of our school is to provide each student with a challenging and rigorous curriculum appropriate to his/her academic level. We believe every child can achieve academic success. To this end, every child will be provided with quality instructional experiences which recognize, support and maintain high expectations for all students.
As your principal, you can expect that I will reach out to you and ask for your support, ideas, suggestions and involvement. I will encourage you to join our school family, where preparing children for the future is our number one priority. I pledge to do my level best to ensure that each child is challenged, nurtured, and provided with a safe and stimulating learning experience.
As we work together during the year, I invite you to stay in contact and let me know how you and your children are experiencing school. There will be many opportunities for contact with me, please don't hesitate or even think your comment or concern is unimportant. Through teamwork, open communication and a dedication to continuous improvement we can make this school a place children delight in and enjoy learning.
I look forward to working together as partners in learning.

Wendy Folsom, Jefferson Elementary School Principal
