Jefferson Elementary School
Welcome to Jefferson Elementary School!
At Jefferson we are helping our students develop a GROWTH MINDSET. We want to inspire our students to believe that hard work can pay off. Instead of saying things like “I can’t do that” or “I don’t know that,” we would rather they say, “I can’t do that YET” or “I can learn it with hard work.” The brain is a muscle that grows with exercise! We want students to know, and truly believe, that they are capable of anything if they are willing to put forth the required effort. We also want them to know that mistakes are opportunities to learn and grow. Mistakes do not make us failures, they make us smarter!
