I want to warmly welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year. As your new principal it is my sincere pleasure and honor to be at Jefferson Elementary School. I am looking forward to working with the dedicated parents and staff to provide the best educational programs for our students.

Jefferson Elementary has a rich history of academic and cultural excellence through the partnership between the school, parents and the Clinton community. During the past five months of starting my work with the Clinton community, I have found close working relationships and focus upon what is best for our children. I feel fortunate to be a part of the Jefferson team!

Parents, teachers, support staff, community and administration all have important roles to encourage our children to become active, life-long learners. It is my sincere desire to provide expanded opportunities for our students to acquire the skills to become healthy and productive citizens in our vastly changing society.

Through a close and collegial partnership with everyone associated with Jefferson Elementary, I am confident we can make our school the BEST place for our students to learn and grow. At Jefferson S.T.A.R.R.S. means “Students and Teachers are Respectful, Responsible and Safe.”

Please feel free to stop in and say hello, as my door is always open. I would like to wish you a relaxing and rejuvenating summer; as well as, a terrific upcoming school year. If there is anything I can assist you with, please feel free to let me know.


Theresa Zahs, Principal
