Girls Basketball – Championship Story The final weeks of the girls’ basketball league were an exciting close to an excellent season. The Black Team finished out the season with a 5-1 record and the Red Team right behind at 4-2. The Blue Team ended on a good note as they lost their last game in a closely fought contest with the Red Team 8-7. Ella Taylor (Blue Team) had six of her team’s seven points. The Championship Game was played before a packed JES house and did not disappoint the crowd. The Red Team jumped out to a 4-0 lead and held it throughout the first half. Keshae Cardwell and Arianna Davis both had two points. The second half was a different story as the Black Team shut out the Red Team and scored eight unanswered points to win 8-4. Mariyah Banks took control for the Black Team as she scored four quick points to tie the game. Annie Porter and Adeline Richter scored the final four points. Congratulations on the big win! The game also featured fun student and teacher contests. The three-point shot contest had some close attempts but no winners. The Musical Chair activity had Katie Niemerg (4th), Brianna Gaston (5th), Emma Schmidt (6th), and Amy Plummer (para) competing for the Dunkin Gift Card. After three rounds Brianna Gaston edged out Amy Plummer for the victory. The afternoon was a great success. Thank you to everyone who attended and the players for a great season!

The holiday season is approaching quickly. Our students currently have an opportunity to give by donating to our Gift 4 Kids program. This program provides gifts to many students who would not otherwise receive one. This year we will be collecting donations of new toys, books, and clothing for students from pre-school age to 6th grade. Monetary donations will also be accepted, and items needed will be purchased with these donations. Please consider sending in a donation with your child to school (unwrapped). Classrooms will be collecting gifts until Wednesday December 7th. Thank you for helping assist families in need.

Last week in JES Science Club we learned about density. We tried to stack low density liquid on top of a higher density liquid. While it worked in a straw, we were unsuccessful to create a rainbow in a cup. We still had fun!

Veterans Day is commemorated each year in honor of all servicemembers; those who have served, those currently serving, and those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect the freedoms of our country. Each year, Jefferson students have an opportunity to reflect on this day through a variety of activities. Many students participated in a door decorating contest by bringing photos of loved ones who have served. Others participated by creating patriotic cards and signs to share their thanks for veterans in our community. Many students also visited the Veterans Day ceremony on Charleston’s Square and had the opportunity to hear our very own Mr. Mueller on the bugle and Mrs. Ehr and Mrs. Fraser sing “God Bless America.” We’re proud of our students for taking the initiative to participate in such a memorable day for so many in our community. They represented Jefferson, their families, and themselves very well today!

During the second contest Red was trailing 10-2 when it went on a 10-0 run to end the game. Below are the results and top scorers from each game.

Congratulations to our JES students who were chosen to serve on the Student Lighthouse Team for the 2022-2023 school year. They submitted a strong application, received a solid faculty/staff recommendation, and their ability to explain how you will make an impact on our school helped in this decision. The Student Lighthouse Team is a group of students representing each classroom in our school who synergize to have a positive impact on students, staff, families, and the community. #jeffersoncusd#1
