You can help by bringing in new or gently used coats, hats, scarves, mittens, boots and gloves to one of our drop off points located at WalMart, Ray's Apple Market, or any of the Fairbury Public School buildings.

FYI Center December/January Calendar On Friday December 21st we will hold Project Santa. So rather than being a teen night only, we will be open for 1st-12th grades from 1:45 (or when the busses arrive) until 4:30pm. We will be closed for programming during the holiday break of course. We will be open for Teen Night on January 4th, and then open for regular programming on Monday the 7th again. Monday January 21st is Martin Luther King Jr Day of Service, a BVCA holiday, so we will be closed for all programming that day.
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!
2nd Quarter Report Cards Report cards for 2nd Quarter will be mailed home Friday, January 4, 2019.
January PTA Meeting The next Fairbury PTA meeting is scheduled for Monday, January 21st. The PTA meeting will be held at Jefferson Intermediate School and is scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m. Complimentary childcare will be available during the meeting. Please plan to attend!
