    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
