Hello Thomas Jefferson Parents,

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter to you as the Principal of Thomas Jefferson Middle School. I am excited and honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition both in and out of the classroom. 

 We encourage all students to experience our school culture, we have many opportunities for students to get involved with TJ activities.  The focus on a culture that provides students with academic and social resources. Students will be prepared not only to achieve here at TJ yet set the foundation for high school. 

At TJ we believe that it is important for our students to be connected to the school through positive relationships and a strong sense of community.  I believe that every student can learn and be successful if provided the right support and opportunities.  Our teachers and staff are committed to providing all students with an appropriate and challenging educational experience in a respectful environment that fosters learning and growth.

A crucial part of success for students is attendance.  As a parent or guardian it is imperative we maintain the attitude of “Every Day Counts” for students to be in school and ready to learn each day.  At TJ, we will assist in helping parents and families understand the importance of instructional time and school attendance.   

We take the time to strategically plan, forge positive relationships, celebrate our achievements, and continue to build in creating a great experience for all students.  

Patriots RISE to meet all expectations.

Respect ~ Integrity ~ Safety ~ Excellence
