    Abigail Snyder and Joe Stimmel have advanced to the Congressional Art Awards Semi-finals representing WV’s 2nd District.   We are extremely proud of them! Only one student from each of the three WV districts is selected each year. The winner’s  art will be on display at the nation’s Capital for a year and he, or she, will be invited to Washington D.C. for a reception.  In addition, Jefferson had two winners in the Martinsburg Journal Design-An-Ad competition, Emma Damm and Sarah Miscus.   Emma Damm earned 1st place honors and Sarah Miscus took 2nd place in their respective age groups. Finally, Jefferson had several students  showcase their work in the County Art Show at the Charles Town Fire Hall Gallery.

    As the weather warms, we would like to remind everyone that there is a dress code at Jefferson High School to which we expect all students will adhere.  Details can be found here:
    Students in violation of the dress code will be given an opportunity to contact a parent or guardian for a change in attire. Those who cannot make a change will spend the day in MIP.  Please help us to keep our focus on learning.
