Jefferson PTA

The Jefferson PTA serves to promote the welfare of the children in the school, at home and in the community, and to enhance the relationship between parents and teachers.

Teacher support is a priority for the PTA, and we encourage you to come to PTA meetings so that you can participate in the discussion of how to best accomplish this goal.

Please join and be a part of an organization whose primary goal is to make Jefferson School and Fox River Academy better for all of our children. 

The PTA budget is approved on an annual basis, and copies are available from the PTA officers.

PTA Sponsored Programs & Activities

City Council Delegate

A council delegate at the Appleton PTA Council represents each elementary school PTA in the Appleton Area School District. The goals of the Appleton PTA Council are "to support and inform the local units" on current issues, "develop additional avenues of communication with the school board and the district, be aware of ongoing legislative issues and also make the public more aware of PTA."


School assembly programs, reading incentive awards, classroom activities fees, etc., are the results of the PTA's fundraising efforts. Fundraising enables us to better serve all students. School-wide participation in the fundraiser is encouraged but never required. Last year Jefferson students participated in Knowledge-A-Thon for their major fundraiser.

Kindergarten Roundup

This is a great opportunity to give next year’s incoming kindergartners a chance to become familiar with Jefferson. The kids will join a kindergarten class for an activity, and parents may take a tour of the building. We’ll conclude the visit with a snack for all! Sign up sheets will be in Kindergarten registration packet sent home the last week in January.

Reading Incentive Programs

Jefferson School's Reading Incentive Program is a new, voluntary individualized reading incentive program available for all Jefferson students. The Jefferson PTA sponsors this program for the purpose of encouraging independent reading for enjoyment. Ongoing information will be sent home throughout the school year to encourage your child to participate in these incentives. Our PTA will be coming up with other fun ways to encourage your children to read, so please provide all the encouragement you can at home!
