Art in the Classroom

We are still looking for volunteers for this fun program!

You do NOT need to know anything particular about art, as all the materials, lessons and project ideas are provided for you. 

Our goal is to provide an art history program that offers Jefferson School students a snapshot of prominent works of art by a wide range of famous artists. 

The kids really love this program, but we need to secure volunteers for each grade and classroom in order to make it a success!!

With gratitude, Your Jefferson School AIC co-chairpersons, 
Kristin Lester ( ) and 
Jenny Chismark ( )
please support our
Notes from Pomptonian

October is Farm to School Month. To celebrate, the cafeteria will be serving Honeycrisp Apples from Solebury Orchard and Pumpkins from Dagele Brothers Produce. Read more here.

October menus are available here . Please also visit Summit Public Schools - School Nutrition And Fitness for more information.
Box Tops

This year, the Box Tops program has started an electronic system that allows you to download their app and simply scan your receipt to earn Jefferson money - it's that easy!

However, if you still find cardboard Box Tops on your grocery store purchases, please feel free to cut them out and send them in as we are continuing to collect those, too. 

Each class in our school will have a running record for the amount of Box Tops collected, and at the end of the year the class with the most Box Tops will have a party so start collecting now.

Questions, feel free to contact our Box Tops committee chair person 
Justina Porras at  or the pto at
