Jefferson Bruins PTA

Welcome to the Jefferson Bruins PTA Website!

Fostering community, diversity, and inclusion to bring the home, teacher and school relationship together utilizing enriching activities and programming for the students of Jefferson Elementary

Global Reading Challenge Volunteers Needed

Global Reading Challenge is underway. We are excited to have 10 teams for Jefferson Elementary for 3rd through 5th grades! We will start having Jefferson’s competitions February 14th and will need parent volunteers to judge contests at Jefferson to determine our top team. Volunteers do not need to have read the books because there will be an answer key for the volunteers. Volunteers help with timing the contests, adding the scores and supporting the teams. There are also opportunities to help hand out prizes to the kids. Volunteers only need the time to help out and a volunteer form filled out at the main office. Please sign up at   

Library Volunteers Needed

Our wonderful librarian, Mrs. Iverson, could really use some help in the library. She has had volunteers in the past but doesn't have any yet this year. Could that be you? This will be an on-going need so if you can volunteer regularly do let us know via this sign-up genius:
