  • Mrs. Zimmerman Wins Big with Business Partner Kable Team Realty

    We would like thank our business partner, Kable Team Realty, for donating a $50 gift certificate for dinner to lucky winner, Mrs. Beth Zimmerman, kindergarten teacher at South Jefferson Elementary. Everyone at South Jefferson was excited to have this opportunity and we're sure Mrs. Zimmerman will enjoy her gift---maybe we're just a little jealous!  Thank you again, Kable Team Realty, for your generosity during Teacher Appreciation Week!

  • South Jefferson Staff Wishes to Thank All for an Awesome

    Teacher Appreciation WeeK

    The South Jefferson staff would like to thank everyone for their generous contributions of food, notes and well wishes during Teacher Appreciation Week.  Everything was delicious and made us feel very special and recognized.  In order for us to be at our very best, it's important for us to have a strong partnership with our families.  All of those little things throughout the year sure do add up and make those partnerships grow which only assists us in the important work that we are charged with every day: to provide your children with the very best that we can give, to educate them and to nurture them while they are here at South Jefferson Elementary.  Thank you for again for all that you do and a special shout out to our wonderful PTO Officers who ALWAYS make us feel appreciated.  Every day.

  • Cub Scout Pack #420 Beautifies South Jefferson

    If you notice how amazing our Parent Circle and Outdoor Classroom look lately, you definitely need to thank Cub Scout Pack #420, Mr. Greg Heflebower, Mr. Rob Poplar and Mrs. Lori Davis!   They came to school on a rainy Saturday morning and cleaned up those areas for all of us to enjoy.  We couldn't be more grateful for all of their support throughout the year, helping us to maintain our Nature Trail and assisting with the Outdoor Classroom and Parent Circle. These young men and their troop leaders truly exemplify what it means to be part of a community and their tireless work is always appreciated. South Jefferson is very proud to call them one of our community partners.

  • Our Annual Hoops for Heart Fundraising Campaign Is A Huge Success

    Because of the hard work of our Hoops for Heart Coordinators, Nurse Kelley Henry and Mr. Atkins, P E Teacher, and the generosity of our families and community, our annual Hoops for Heart campaign was an amazing success, once again!  We would like to thank everyone who participated and for your donations to such an important cause in all of our lives.  Our students were able to win gym equipment for their classrooms as well as earn "lunch with the teacher" privileges.  But....probably the most fun of all was the hot dog eating contest between Nurse Kelley and Mr. Atkins.  Students were randomly chosen to select condiments for the hot dogs that would be eaten:  onions, chocolate chips, caramel sauce, relish and even hot sauce!  Kudos to both of them for volunteering to do this and for actually eating the ENTIRE hot dog!  Superintendent, Dr. Gibson, was on hand to share in the fun and to also celebrate South Jefferson Elementary's accomplishments.

    A special thank you to business partners, Mrs. Barbara Scott of Summit Point Speedway and the Zanella family of Hillbrook Inn and Spa for their generous donations this year, which helped us to raise over $16,000 for the American Heart Association.  It's our hope that we will earn the title of "Top Fundraising School" in the state of WV again this year.  


     Ms. Heather Decker (Regional Director for the American Heart Association), Mr. Atkins (P.E. Teacher/Hoops Coordinator), the "Happy Heart" (Ms. Mahoney), Dr. Gibson (Superintendent of Jefferson County Schools), Nurse Kelley Henry (SJES Nurse/Hoops Coordinator) and Mr. Jenkins (Principal of South Jefferson Elementary).


    The bravest of them all: Mr. Atkins and Nurse Kelley, getting prepared to consume their "extra-special" hot dogs.  


    SJES Roadrunners, putting their "heart" into our annual Hoops for Heart campaign!
