The initial, somewhat lofty, financial goal for Israel's new wheelchair was to raise $6,000.00, one cup of coffee (or tea or hot chocolate) at a time. Instead, everyone who came and drank and donated at Jefferson's Happy Beans Coffee blew the top off the cardboard thermometer with a total of...$8,283.00!!! But it gets even better! Combined with donations given at Lake City Bank and through a GoFundMe account, the GRAND TOTAL for this fundraiser comes to $14,040!!! This means a new wheelchair and a bike and finances toward medical expenses! Do we live in an amazing community or what?! Thank you to EVERYONE who donated time and/or money to this amazing project for an awesome kid. Good things happen when we come together to support each other. #ExperienceWCS #WCSmission

Jefferson held its annual Spelling Bee on Wednesday, January 10th, and dozens of BRAVE 5th and 6th grade spellers took the stage, spelling words through multiple rounds. ​ In the end, it came down to just two Spartans. The 2024 Bee winner is Bridget B. (5th grade) along with runner-up Will G. (6th grade). Both students will represent Jefferson at the Warsaw Elementary Spelling Bee on January 30th at Lakeview Middle School. ​ Congratulations to ALL participants! Jefferson has many GREAT and COURAGEOUS spellers! ​ Photo: Mrs. Jennifer Long (Bee emcee), Will G., Bridget B., Mr. Josh Wall (Jefferson principal).

Happy 2024, Spartans!
It has been a busy season for learning and showing what we know! Recently Ms. Smith's and Mr. Longenberger's 3rd grade classes presented their City Architects Showcase to other classes, their families, and the community. What went into this culmination of study? Ms. Smith stated, "Students researched careers that went with their specific buildings that were important for a sustainable city. They did an informative paper on their career also. They made a 3D printing on TinkerCad of their building, as well as a LEGO representation of the inside of their building. We used blueprints to show area and perimeter of each room." Great job, 3rd grade! #ExperienceWCS

Two of our favorites helped serve lunch today. Mrs. Snow taught Kindergarten at Jefferson for 10 years, and Mr. McClintock, who retired in May, is still basically a regular around here. (We're not complaining.) ​ #ExperienceWCS

Occasionally the stars align, and four, former, successive Jefferson principals all end up at the same event (6th Grade Green Energy Expo), AND someone remembers to take a picture! Pictured are Mr. Josh Wall (2020–present), Mr. Kyle Carter (2014–2020), Mr. David Robertson (2012–2014), and Mr. Denny Duncan (circa 1994–2012). Mr. Carter and Mr. Robertson both had sons presenting in the Green Energy Expo, and Mr. Duncan had a GRANDson presenting. How fun is that?! Jefferson's roots run deep. #ExperienceWCS #WCSmission
