Jefferson County Schools extends our appreciation to Mr. Justin P. Brown, Sr. for his service as an interim member of the Jefferson County Board of Education. Earlier this year, Mr. Brown applied and was selected in a competitive application process to serve Jefferson County students at a critical time. His dedication, thoughtful decision-making, and calm, steady leadership have been greatly appreciated in helping move our school system forward.

Jefferson County School stands in solidarity with the families, children, educators, and communities in Uvalde, Texas, in the wake of the tragic events of May 24th, 2022. There are no words that can restore what has been taken, not only from those individuals but from all of us. Everyone at Jefferson Schools is here for the community as we support our children together. You can find a list of resources on speaking to children about this difficult topic following this link: https://bit.ly/39SwBoW. We will also have counseling staff available for any of our students or staff who need that support. Please join us as we continue our end-of-year student celebrations and honors while remaining mindful of the impacted communities and our solemn responsibility for the safety and wellbeing of our children.

At JCS, we believe in being good stewards of our planet Earth. So, this Earth Day we are proud to recognize Driswood Elementary School for being awarded a sustainable gardening grant! The project will allow each grade K-5 to create a garden bed and develop a growth plan that aligns with classroom curricula and demonstrates students' unique personalities. DES will receive assistance in building the beds from members of the Science National Honor Society at Jefferson High School. SNHS students are also busy working on the JHS courtyard and rain garden and preparing to sell trees from their native tree propagation program with Cacapon Institute. A big thank you to these JCS students for doing their part to help create a healthier, more sustainable planet!
