5 Keys to Success at Jefferson!

At Jefferson School, we believe that every child in every classroom can and will achieve success. One way we can ensure academic success is to continue the learning at home. Research shows that practice is important for anyone to achieve success! Education is no different. We would like the learning that is taking place in the classroom to continue at home through practice.

Following the 5 Keys to Success is a wonderful way for our families to help and support their children at home.

1. Completing Homework.
2. Practicing High Frequency Words.
3. Read their Library Leveled Book.
4. Log into Lexia. (it’s free!)
