Thank You Jason Lee PTA for our Pavillion!

Constructed over Spring Break.
Tables to be installed soon.

The Pavilion project is the culminating efforts of eight years of Jason Lee PTA saving money to create some shade at Jason Lee. Gale-Rew donated their time and man hours, Pre-Mix Concrete donated all of the concrete, and MetalFab gave us a significant discount on the metal used to build the pavilion (and built the structure).

PTA will be hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday, April 23rd at 5:30pm. You are invited to celebrate with us. Our BOGO Scholastic Book Fair and music concerts will also be happening at Jason Lee that evening until 7pm.


5th grade students have been given the challenge of getting to know their presidents. These four ambitious students can recite presidents for all 44 terms. Can you?
