Welcome to the Jefferson High School PTSA
Welcome new families and staff and all of our returning Demos!
Please consider becoming a member of the PTSA. Everyone in the Jefferson community is welcome. PTSA stands for Parent, Teacher, Student Association which doesn’t fully describe who we are. Alumni, grandparents, caregivers, SEI, Latin Network, anyone who is part of the Jefferson community is enthusiastically invited.
Here are just some of things that we do:
Run a weekly community food pantry
Fund grants for staff projects and student group/club projects
Provide scholarships for graduating seniors
Host a Senior Celebration to honor our graduates in the spring
Publish a monthly newsletter
Hold community events
Sell Jefferson gear (t-shirts, hoodies, etc)
Fundraise to support all of the things we do!
We are here for you. In addition to asking you what you can do for the PTSA and the school. Your PTSA is here to support you. Our newsletter, emails and meetings keep you informed. You can reach out to us if you are looking for information and can’t find it. You can meet other parents and community members at meetings and events. We often have guest speakers at our monthly meetings on topics that directly relate to our community, like the Center for Black Student Excellence or how Covid Impacts Teens and their families. The food pantry and clothing closet is here for anyone in need. The PTSA is YOUR community organization.
Lastly, we want to acknowledge and honor the diversity in our school community. As your PTSA, we are committed to breaking down barriers that our families and community members may experience that keep them from feeling welcome. We want everyone to feel welcomed, valued and included. That doesn’t happen without commitment and work. Together, we can do great things for the students of Jefferson High School and build a stronger community for everyone.
We love the Jefferson school community, the staff, the students, the families and alumni! Looking forward to a year of connection and lots of opportunity to support Jefferson!
Together We Can!
