SJE Celebrates Fire Safety Week!
Firefighters from Middleway Fire Company came out to educate our students on fire safety and prevention. Students were able to check out all of the different equipment they use, as well as the fire truck. We would like to thank the Middleway Fire Department for taking the time to come out and teach our students these valuable, life saving lessons! We appreciate all that you do!

WV School Climate Survey
Calling all South Jefferson Families! We need your help!
We have included log in instructions for the Annual School Climate Survey. This survey, given to all schools in West Virginia, is your personal opinion and is very important information for our school. The data collected is reviewed by the Superintendent and taken into account when we need to make changes to our programs or the overall daily operation of our school.
Once again, your opinion is very important and we need your help. This is your opportunity to have a voice! All information collected from both our parents and students is completely anonymous.
Last year, out of 500 parents/guardians, we only had 12 parent survey responses. Certainly we can do better than 12 responses this year. Our goal is to have the HIGHEST percentage of parent participation in the County.
Parent /Guardian Survey instructions:
Thank you so much for your time and we appreciate your help in keeping our school a positive and safe place for our students, our families and the surrounding community. Let’s have the most parent participation in Jefferson County Schools!
Volunteers Needed for Career Day
We are looking for volunteers that would like to come in for a day and speak to multiple classes about your career. We plan to have career day during National Education Week on Thursday, November 16th. We would like to have volunteers rotate around to classes during two different sessions, one in the morning from 9:30-11:00 and then again from 1:30-3:00. Each volunteer would speak with about 6 different classes during each session for about 15 minutes each. We encourage you to share what some of your job responsibilities are and also what training or schooling you needed for your career. If you are interested and available to volunteer your time for the students of South Jefferson on November 16th, please send a note to your child’s teacher or email Mrs. Sturba (email@example.com) by October 31st.

Positive Principal Referral
We are so proud of Colton Shillingburg for receiving the first Positive Principal Referral of the year! At recess, Colton noticed a classmate sitting alone on the bench. Colton went over to the child to see if they were okay and then invited the child to play with him. Way to be a good friend, Colton!
First Grade Fun!
Ms. Sigley's class had a great time learning all about Johnny Appleseed this past week. At the end of the week they made applesauce and then wrote a "How to Make Applesauce" book. This was one tasty lesson!
