    Welcome to the Jefferson Middle School website!

    We hope that this site can be used as another line of communication between the school and the community, especially the families of our students.  


    Dear Students and Families:

    Welcome to Jefferson Middle School!

    My name is Dr. Jonathan B. Penuliar, and I am excited to be back serving in my second year as the principal here at Jefferson. I learned very much about the rich history of our community and school last year. And this year, I look forward to continuing to work with our amazing staff to build a solid academic foundation for the next generation of Jefferson Falcons. 

    We have several focus areas this year, and our priority will be placed on student success and creating supportive learning environments. With respect to student success, we will be working hard to advance academic growth and proficiency so that ALL students leave our school ready for success in high school. Included in this work will be creating inclusive, equitable and affirming teaching, learning, and work environments where ALL people feel safe, connected, and valued. 

    When students are at school they have the best chance of success. Thus, we will be working extra hard to provide support in student attendance. We look forward to seeing our students everyday from the fall to the spring, and we will be providing extra incentives for students who make it to school consistently. 

    The future will bring challenges we have yet to see and our school is ready to provide our students with an education that will prepare them for leading the charge forward. Through high expectations in academics, athletics, and building community, we look forward to leading the way. Our team is here for you, to offer support, work in collaboration, and to help your scholar navigate their middle school journey.

    Welcome once again. We have a great year ahead. 


    Dr. Penuliar
