A message from the Principals

On behalf of our entire staff at Thomas Jefferson, we extend a warm welcome to all students and families in our learning community.  Our school community is built on a foundation of shared values and a commitment to our students meeting their maximum potential.  

To achieve this, we are committed to promoting not only academic success but also positive behavioral outcomes. Our dedicated staff is here to guide and inspire our students, nurturing their intellectual curiosity and personal growth. Together, we will work towards creating an environment that encourages students to not only excel academically but also exhibit positive behaviors and develop essential life skills.

We believe that a positive and respectful learning environment is crucial for academic achievement and personal growth. Our school community thrives when each member contributes to creating an atmosphere of kindness, empathy, and responsibility. We encourage our families, teachers, and students to collaborate closely to ensure a successful academic journey, where positive behavioral success is celebrated and recognized.

Open communication is key, and your input is invaluable in shaping our school community. It is a priority that every individual feels a sense of belonging, achieves their academic goals, and contributes positively to the overall success of our community.

Thank you for your continued commitment to our shared vision and for being an integral part of our school family.

Mrs. Vicky Foster & Mr. John Knobbe
