Many Jefferson students participated in our "Unwrap a Mystery Book" program held in the library throughout February. Students hid their favorite books they've read in bags for others to checkout, with only giving a few hints listed on the front of their bag. After students read their Mystery Book and completed a reflection sheet, their names were entered in a school-wide drawing for our grand prize. Congrats to our winner Ellis & our runner up Rhyanna! #jeffersoncusd1
