Incoming 6th Grade Parent Night

This is a meeting tailored for parents of incoming 6th graders. It is an open-ended forum regarding transition from the elementary school to the middle school. This will be an informational session with questions and answers regarding class schedule placement, testing issues, and other transitional concerns. We look forward to meeting you in the Jefferson Library, April 15th 6:00 P.M. – 7:00 P.M.

Important! Smarter Balanced Field Testing Coming Soon

This spring schools in twenty-two states will participate in a field test of the Smarter Balanced Assessment. Jefferson is one of the schools participating in the trail run of this test before it is required and scored in all schools statewide in the spring of 2015. Our school’s field testing will take place between the dates of April 28 and June 6. There are several advantages to participating in this trial run of the test; one of the biggest is having one year of testing under our belt the tests are required and scored next year. To learn more about the Smarter Balanced Assessment field test and what it will mean for our school and our students, click on the link to read a letter from JMS Principal Michael Cimino, Centennial Elementary Principal Alice Drummer (Centennial is also participating in the field test) and Superintendent Dick Cvitanich.


Smarter Balanced Assessments

Read the March 7th letter sent home regarding the new Smarter Balanced Assessments. Jefferson is one of two Olympia School District schools participating in the field test of this new assessment relating to Common Core State Standards.
