    Greetings from Jefferson Township Middle School,

    As principal of Jefferson Township Middle School, I take pride in the amazing programs and curriculum that we have to offer at JTMS.  Furthermore, I am most proud of the welcoming and positive school environment where our students are able to grow and thrive.  This past year, a committed team of stakeholders including representation from the students, staff, parents, Jefferson Township Police Department, and Administration came together to develop our beliefs, vision, and mission.  Each word in these statements was carefully crafted in order to clearly communicate our beliefs, vision, and mission and to build a solid foundation upon which to continue building a middle school program that is responsive to the needs of our students.

    I am looking forward to an exciting school year and to continuing our partnership with parents and the Jefferson Township community.

    Warmest Regards,

    Peggy Widgren, Principal

    Welcome Sylvester the Stone to the Falcon Family

    The students in the ASD class at JTMS recently adopted a class pet rock as a culminating activity for a thematic unit on pets.  The students as well as staff voted for the rock to be named Sylvester the Stone aka Sly Stone. Sly Stone is a perfect addition to the Falcon Family and has begun to teach the ASD students at JTMS valuable life skills about responsibility. The students care for Sly by changing his water bottle, feeding him his favorite food-beads and taking him in and out of his cage for daily exercise. The best part is, the students are tracking his “VIP Lifestyle” on a class Bulletin Board affixed with pictures as Sly Stone ventures home weekly with different students and staff members.  If you are at JTMS, please stop by room C-5 and give Sly Stone a warm welcome. 


    Mrs. Storm's class did a fun activity in Computer Science. The activity was to introduce students to building games that are challenging and involve providing positive emotions to the users. We played Massively Multiplayer Thumb Wrestling! (Don't worry, we used plenty of hand sanitizer.)
