     Hi TJ Family!

    I hope you have enjoyed your weekend. Yesterday the district held a virtual School Choice Expo, and hopefully those of you who were interested in viewing middle school booths were able to access them. In case you missed the live event, there is a banner on the front page of Thomas Jefferson's website that says: "Missed the live event? You can still find the right school for your child." Underneath there is a link that says: "Browse expo until February 28th." Clicking that link will show the shortcuts to viewing every school's booth. Please also take a moment to view Thomas Jefferson's booth and direct your friends to view it as well.

    Parents should remember that to access a magnet application you must have a Focus account. Students in our magnet program have continuity to the following gifted and talented middle schools: James Weldon Johnson, Julia Landon, and Darnell-Cookman. In order to receive program continuity, neighborhood students must apply to our magnet program by 4th grade. All neighborhood students who apply to our magnet by 4th grade will be accepted into our magnet program. The deadline to submit a magnet application is February 28th.

    Lastly, please note that this is a five-day week that will be followed by a three-day weekend. Schools are closed Monday, January 18th, for the Martin Luther King Holiday.

    Have a wonderful week!

    Mrs. Turner
