Attendance Awareness in February 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 individual students with perfect attendance and classrooms with the best overall attendance during the month of February. Please encourage your students to get great rest so they are at school on-time, everyday!

Parent-Teacher Conference Infomation Third Quarter parent/teacher conferences will be held on Tuesday, March 6th from 4:00–8:00 p.m. and Thursday, Thursday, March 8th from 12:00pm-8:00pm. School will be in session for all students on Tuesday, March 6th, however, there will be NO SCHOOL on Thursday, March 8th and NO SCHOOL on Friday, March 9th. Parent/Teacher Conference: Each conference with teachers will typically be limited to 20 minutes in order for all parents to have an opportunity to meet with their child’s teacher. If additional time is necessary, teachers will be willing to schedule another time to meet with parents. In the event that a waiting line has formed outside of a teacher’s classroom, please take this opportunity to visit another of your child’s teachers and to visit the Usborne Books. A sign will be posted on each teacher’s classroom door indicating when a parent conference is in session. Please respect other parents’ privacy and refrain from entering during this time. While Jefferson Intermediate students (3rd-6th) are welcome to attend and participate in the conference sessions, it is recommended that families arrange for alternate childcare for younger siblings and/or relatives who often find waiting, sitting and listening during conferences challenging. In the event that the designated time period for your child’s conference conflicts with your schedule, please contact your child’s teacher at school to let her know which time period will work for you. Our school’s Reading Collaborator, Sheri Christiansen and our Resource Teachers, Michelle Hanson and Cassie Bonar will participate in selected conferences with classroom teachers. These teachers may also be available for conferences on a drop-in basis either day. The school counselor and psychologist will be available. Additional appointments may be scheduled during regular weekly hours Specialist teachers are available for conferences as noted below, but will not be assigned specific times, unless noted.
