Welcome to Jefferson Community School!

Jefferson is a vibrant community school located in the heart of the Uptown area of Minneapolis. Jefferson is a school where children are nurtured and encouraged, where creativity and kindness are cherished, and kids are held accountable and mentored to find their gifts and paths to success. Involvement by our families and our surrounding community greatly contribute to our learning environment.

Family Night: Cultural Celebration

Jefferson Families are invited to a special night celebrating the diverse cultures that make up Jefferson on Thursday, November 15th from 5:30-7pm!  Everyone is invited to bring a special food dish to share, homemade or bought. We are looking for families to host tables and talk with others about their country or culture.  You can display photos, maps, souvenirs, jewelry, and anything that helps tell others what is special about your country.  We are also looking for students to participate in the Cultural Fashion Show.  Return the form that was backpacked home or call Elizabeth Hale at 612.668.2749 to sign-up!
