Each teacher has 2 pages dedicated to just their class, and the book is filled with a ton more pictures of all the fun our kids have at school!

This seemed to work really well last year!! Books will be $16 from now through February 15, 2019. So make sure you get your books ordered by this date because after February 15th the books will increase in price!! Any books ordered after February 15th will be $25 apiece. We have also tried to make it easier for you to order your books this year! We have an online ordering option! Go to www.schoolannual.com Click on “Buy your students yearbook” Enter the school book you wish to order ie. Central Elementary Fairbury or Jefferson Intermediate Fairbury.

Attendance Did you know that student absences have a negative impact on student learning? Research has shown that student absences, at all grade levels, results in lower levels of learning, poor grades and a lower chance of the student graduating high school. We want ALL of our students at Jefferson Intermediate to be at school everyday! To raise awareness of the importance of ALL students being in school, our school counselor and school psychologist, Mrs. Lucking and Dr. Timmons, are recognizing students with perfect attendance and classrooms with the best overall attendance each month starting in September. Please encourage your students to get great rest so they are at school on-time, everyday!
