Jefferson Academy PTO NEEDS YOU! Are you a parent who would like to be a part of an important team? Then the JA PTO Executive Board needs you!!! Send us your name, contact information, a brief bio telling us what difference you’d like to make in the lives of our students to: [email protected]! All interested candidate information is needed on or before 4/30/2020! Thank you!
JA Families, Mark your calendars for our next PTO meeting on Wednesday March 18th! During this meeting we will have members of the Amidon-Bowen PTO speaking about relationship building with Jefferson Academy...Important Principal Updates... Our PTO chatting it up about their roles to interested parents to prepare for the upcoming PTO elections and more!!! If you're interested in being a part of a team that desires to support and build their school community: YOU SHOULD BE THERE!!! Hope you'll join us!!!! Homework/Reading Table sections will be set up for the students during the meeting! JA PTO Carletta *********************************************************************** What's the role of a PTO? That role is to help transform your school from a pile of bricks with books inside into a community where the kids know that they're not alone. How you send that message—what you work on this year, what you work on next year, how you make the school a better place—is up to you and your membership. There's no better cause. Join us!!!
Good morning everyone... It's time... Time to talk about it with our young ladies! Talk about what you might ask? Come on, look around unless you're completely oblivious to what is happening in our world. Kids are dying more and more, kids are failing and dropping out of school. Kids are becoming parents early on in this life. Kids are contracting diseases that they can not rid themselves of. Kids are not communicating with adults: they are learning from the streets which is not a "Good" idea. As a people we should want Success for our youth; not failure. As a people we should want them to live in a world where they understand what is right and wrong without judgement. We need to let them know they matter. If you know of a young lady between the ages of 11-15 that needs encouragement. That would benefit from this event, please... send her my way. Let her parents know, I am here to help. They can call me directly, email me... whatever they need to do. I spoke to a parent yesterday who's daughter is attending and she is coming from Achievement Prep. I don't care what school they attend, I am here for them. Share my flier... and let them know to contact me to RSVP. Otherwise they will not be able to gain entry to the program (rule #1). Thanks in advance! - Carletta
