Jefferson Elementary Groundbreaking!

It's official.....the Jefferson Elementary School replacement project is underway. The entire Jefferson student body emptied out to the north playfield Friday morning to watch the groundbreaking ceremony. And the students had some extra fun when they joined school board members, district administrators, and teachers in turning over some of the dirt with gold shovels.

"This is a very exciting day for our entire Jefferson family," said Principal Bobbi Buttars.

Design West Architects, Kennewick, is the architectural firm for the Jefferson replacement project. The new Jefferson will be 65,000 square feet in size and house 537 students.

Future Chef Emily Dustin!

Our very own Jefferson Elementary student Emily Dustin and her original recipe "Apple Sushi" have placed in the top five in the national Future Chef competition.

Mixed Bag Fundraiser

Our students are busy raising money with our mixed bag fundraiser from April 10th-April 21st. Orders can be placed through students directly or on-line. Proceeds help every grade level go on field trips each year. If you would like more information please see the flyer below. 


Community members are invited to the official groundbreaking for the new Jefferson Elementary School on Friday, April 14, 9:30 am, just north of the existing school (1525 Hunt Avenue). The site prep work is being done by Big D’s Construction. The new Jefferson will open in August 2018.
