Grammar School – ……Sept 27th
Parent-Teacher Conferences (High School & Middle School)

The upper campus will be holding parent-teacher conferences on the evening of September 12th from 3:30 – 7:00 pm.  The intent of these brief, 10-minute conferences is to provide parents and teachers with an opportunity to get to know one another and review student progress to date. IIf you are interested in scheduling a conference with an individual teacher, or an entire grade team, please call Mrs. Roberts for middle school conferences (ext 1108) or Mrs. Murphy for high school conferences (ext 1509) beginning Monday, September 9.  Parent-teacher conferences are not required.

School Clubs:  Please visit the school website to review and sign up for some of the extracurricular clubs that are sponsored at Thomas Jefferson.  Don’t miss out on the opportunity to join one of TJ’s exciting after school options!  The deadline to sign up is Monday, September 9th.


PowerSchool: PowerSchool is our primary method of providing students and parents with timely feedback on assignments. If you do not have an active PowerSchool account, please email Mrs. Earle at and ask her for a parent login.


As the number of bus riders has increased on both campuses, we regret to inform you that we are unable to accommodate students riding home with friends that are not assigned to the individual bus rosters.  We apologize for the inconvenience but please understand that circumstances do not allow for the transportation of students not assigned to a specific bus.

Additionally, we would like to remind bus rider families to make your $50 monthly donation to our transportation fund.  Your donations are our primary method of purchasing new buses and maintaining our existing fleet. We have recently purchased four additional buses to be shared between the two campuses. They are currently in the process of being serviced and inspected prior to being integrated into our fleet.  We thank you in advance for your support!

We are TJ Strong!
