In conjunction with a program educating the students, I am asking parents and caregivers to assist the school in creating a safe walking environment for our students.

  • Remember, Moffett Street is a two-way street.  At no time are you permitted to drive on the wrong side of the road, especially over the Cross Walk.
  • Please keep the cross walk clear particularly during the busy dismissal time.
  • When stopping for students using the Cross Walk, please allow space so that students are able to watch for moving vehicles in both directions.
  • If you see that a vehicle may be endangering a student, please use your horn to alert them.  While it may be loud, it is more important to make the driver aware and alert the pedestrians to danger.

Remember, child safety should always come first.  Please don’t put your child or your neighbor’s child in an unsafe situation for convenience sake.

~ Dr. James Walsh, Principal

Parents, if you drop off or pick up on Moffett Street,

Thank you JMS students for a super 2013-14 school year. Best of luck to our eighth graders at the high school. We will see the rest of you on September 2! Have a fantastic summer!

Save the date! Mark your calendars for the sixth grade orientation on Friday, August 22. We will have two sessions: 9:00 AM or 1:30 PM. All sixth graders and new students to Jefferson are invited to attend one of the sessions. In addition to meeting some of the staff at JMS, you will be able to walk your schedule, try a locker, put money on your lunch account, order a gym uniform, and join PTA.

If you cannot attend that day, you may visit the school anytime this summer. Once the schedules are completed and posted to Dashboard, you can come and walk the building and check out your rooms. We will also be posting a video of the orientation presentations to our website for anyone who missed it.
The Mt. Lebanon Summer Enrichment Program and the Parkway West Career and Technology Center have some wonderful opportunities for middle schoolers to participate in hands-on activities this summer.

7th and 8th Grade Volleyball: Tryouts will take place from 3:30-5:00 on Tuesday and Wednesday August 26-27. Please have all forms completed online and paperwork to the nurse by August 21st.
