Welcome to the Thomas Jefferson Elementary School PTA page. Our goal for the TJES-PTA is to put children first! We do this by bringing teachers, families, and community together while raising money, so that our school can offer state of the art technology and resources for our children to grow and learn. With your support, we can continue to make TJES academically challenging and socially rewarding. Our school is a community based on vibrant parent involvement. Whether it is your time, knowledge, or resources, your contribution makes a difference! TJES has something for everyone, so we personally invite you to become an involved member of our community!
