Welcome to Thomas Jefferson Elementary School

At TJES, we strive to put "children first," and in doing so try to help students become confident and independent, creative, inquisitive, healthy, thoughtful and generous, trustworthy, and high achieving. We can do this best when the school staff and families work closely together to meet individual student needs. In this student handbook, we provide some details about the school that will give you information about school policies, procedures, and expectations. These basic guidelines help us unite in the shared task of teaching each child well and providing for his or her safety and well being.

The vision of Thomas Jefferson Elementary is to give children the opportunity to reach their potential and be successful life-long learners.

Our mission, in partnership with our families and community, is to educate our children in a way that encourages independence, responsibility and good citizenship in a safe, supportive environment.
