  • JLINE Dance Crew Entertains SJES Roadrunners
       What do you get when you mix high energy hip hop dancing, singing, 500 elementary kids and a message about the negative effects of bullying???  Why, a fun-filled morning celebrating our students with NO interventions and creating awareness about self-respect, responsibility and goal setting, that's what!  When the JLine Dance Crew hit the stage, we knew we were in for a fun experience.  The SJES students certainly enjoyed themselves---we thank JLine and his Crew for a wonderful morning!  Also, congratulations to all of our students who were recognized for no interventions for the entire year!  Well done, guys!

  • Mrs. Allinger's 2nd Grade Class Welcomes New Arrivals
       It is with great excitement that we announce the arrival of baby chicks in Mrs. Allinger's 2nd grade classroom.  The sweet little ones arrived this morning and you can only imagine the excitement that ensued!  The eggs have been in the incubator and the class has anxiously anticipated the new chicks' arrival.  Maybe not Roadrunners in species, but definitely ones in spirit!

  • Be A "Hunger Hero" at South Jefferson Elementary!
       Thank you to all of our South Jefferson families who donated so much food and supplies to our Annual SJES Food Drive this year.  Jefferson County's Community Ministries is always so pleased with our donations and it comes at just the right time of the year for our fellow Jefferson County residents who are in need.  We filled half of a classroom with all of your donations!  A special thanks to Ms. Smallwood and Ms. Keller for organizing the drive, to Mr. Atkins, who agreed to give the class who collected the most food an extra session of P.E. and to Mr. Jenkins who transported the donation to Community Ministries.  Awesome! This is just another reason why this school is such an important and valuable part of the community.  Makes your heart feel good, right before Valentine's Day, doesn't it???

  • Two South Jefferson Educators Receive Teaching Arts Creatively Grants
       Congratulations to Mrs. Judy Chesley, Art Teacher at South Jefferson, and Mrs. Pam Shearer, Music Teacher at South Jefferson, for receiving Teaching Arts Creatively grants this year from the Jefferson Arts Council.  Both teachers applied for grants to support their creative arts' programs as well as supplement our yearlong study on the Arts at our school.   Mrs. Shearer and Mrs. Chesley were two of the nineteen grants of $500 awarded in our County.  The awards were given to the educators who "demonstrated leadership, creativity and a clear plan to provide valuable and diverse arts instruction to the students of our community" in support of the Jefferson Arts Council's mission and belief that "art is woven into every aspect of education and human life".  We couldn't agree more and are very proud of Mrs. Chesley and Mrs. Shearer.

  • NHES Presents "Kindness in the Classroom"
       A coordinated effort between our guidance counselor, Mrs. Cavanaugh, and Megan Flinn and Erika Nicholason from NHES (National Humane Education Society/Briggs ) brought the "Kindness Into the Classroom" program to South Jefferson Elementary.  The "Kindness Into the Classroom" program gives children information about the respectful ways to take care of pets.  The classes were so excited to meet "Maize", a puppy from Briggs, who was an absolute love bug with all of our students and staff.  We thank NHES and Mrs. Cavanaugh for bringing this wonderful program to our school. UPDATE:  NHES contacted us today, to let us know that Maize was adopted by a super nice family.  We are so happy for her!  :)
