Dear Falcon Family:

On behalf of the members of the Board of Education, administration, and staff, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome the Class of 2032, families who are new to Jefferson Township and welcome back all returning members of our Falcon family.

Every student deserves the best environment possible in which to learn.  Thanks to last year’s referendum being approved by our Township’s voters, the summer months have been very busy, as Phase 1 of the referendum projects began the day after school ended last year.  The scope of work included modernized science and technology labs, security upgrades, renovated Makerspaces, renovated Middle School locker rooms, and much more.  I invite you to visit our district’s website to view many pictures showing the progress taking place.

I strongly encourage you to attend the back-to-school night at your child’s school to hear all of the innovative programs that will be offered to your child in the upcoming school year.  This is a great time to get to know your child’s teacher(s) and learn about all of the exciting things your child will be learning throughout the school year.

Student achievement is the constant focus of the district.  The district is committed to providing an enriching curricula to all of our students and working to ensure that our students gain essential knowledge and skills for lifelong success. The Board of Education is committed to providing our teaching staff with continual professional development. Included in this year’s calendar are four early dismissal days for professional development. Please review the calendar for these dates as well as review the changes to unused snow days.

I welcome your comments, questions, and concerns at any time. I urge you to communicate with your child’s teacher, principal, and my administrative team when you have a concern. Together we will work to help assure that your child has a successful and enriching school year.
