Jefferson held its annual Spelling Bee on Wednesday, January 10th, and dozens of BRAVE 5th and 6th grade spellers took the stage, spelling words through multiple rounds. ​ In the end, it came down to just two Spartans. The 2024 Bee winner is Bridget B. (5th grade) along with runner-up Will G. (6th grade). Both students will represent Jefferson at the Warsaw Elementary Spelling Bee on January 30th at Lakeview Middle School. ​ Congratulations to ALL participants! Jefferson has many GREAT and COURAGEOUS spellers! ​ Photo: Mrs. Jennifer Long (Bee emcee), Will G., Bridget B., Mr. Josh Wall (Jefferson principal).

Happy 2024, Spartans!
It has been a busy season for learning and showing what we know! Recently Ms. Smith's and Mr. Longenberger's 3rd grade classes presented their City Architects Showcase to other classes, their families, and the community. What went into this culmination of study? Ms. Smith stated, "Students researched careers that went with their specific buildings that were important for a sustainable city. They did an informative paper on their career also. They made a 3D printing on TinkerCad of their building, as well as a LEGO representation of the inside of their building. We used blueprints to show area and perimeter of each room." Great job, 3rd grade! #ExperienceWCS

Two of our favorites helped serve lunch today. Mrs. Snow taught Kindergarten at Jefferson for 10 years, and Mr. McClintock, who retired in May, is still basically a regular around here. (We're not complaining.) ​ #ExperienceWCS

Occasionally the stars align, and four, former, successive Jefferson principals all end up at the same event (6th Grade Green Energy Expo), AND someone remembers to take a picture! Pictured are Mr. Josh Wall (2020–present), Mr. Kyle Carter (2014–2020), Mr. David Robertson (2012–2014), and Mr. Denny Duncan (circa 1994–2012). Mr. Carter and Mr. Robertson both had sons presenting in the Green Energy Expo, and Mr. Duncan had a GRANDson presenting. How fun is that?! Jefferson's roots run deep. #ExperienceWCS #WCSmission

Fab Four
Jefferson's recent 6th Grade Green Energy Expo was the culmination of work done through a Project-Based Learning unit on Green Energy. The unit was designed to correlate with Jefferson's pillars for STEM. It incorporated the informational writing standard. The students explored various Green Energy jobs and chose one to research further. They then had to write a 7-paragraph paper telling about the career. The second component to this unit was the presentation. Students were partnered with others who had a similar job. They had to create a 5-minute presentation that combined a visual and verbal component to address their individual careers, how they work together, and how they can be beneficial to our community. Classes, parents, and community partners were invited to come see the presentations on Thursday afternoon, December 14th. Information provided by Mrs. Jennifer Long, 6th-grade teacher. #ExperienceWCS #WCSmission

We are sad to report that the book fair, both online and in-person, have concluded for this year. Even though the online fair said it would be open through today, Dec. 9, the company reported that this date discrepancy was a "time-zone bug" and something they are working on. We hope that everyone found a reading treasure or two. Your support means the world to our Jefferson Library. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
