Jefferson Scholar Program
The Jefferson Scholar Program is currently interviewing scholars interested in deepening their education. This Program allows scholars to work in groups or as individuals to study, research, discover, take notes, create a portfolio, explore, and learn. If your scholar is a self-starter and needs more of a challenge, this Program might be for them. There are informational packets in the office or you can contact Mrs. Mauer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our next Pizza Thursday will be December 13th! The price is $1.25 for a slice of pizza or 50 cents for a breadstick while supplies last.
