Mr. Brad Smith

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

It is with great pride that I write this letter to you for the 2021-2022 school year.       

I am excited to be in my second year as the Principal of Jefferson Elementary and to have the opportunity, once again, to work with you as a partner to ensure your child's success in school--academically, emotionally, behaviorally, and socially. This year, we are welcoming Mr. Dan Jones to the Jefferson Team as our Assistant Principal. Mr. Jones, previously a classroom teacher for many years at Jefferson, brings his wealth of knowledge, passion, and enthusiasm to his new role.  

Although for the last couple of years, COVID has presented some challenges for Jefferson (and the world), I have been amazed by the way everyone has kept optimistic, adapted to the ongoing challenges, and ultimately turned what could have been very negative, into something positive. The education and support that the entire Jefferson staff offer students and families is always inspiring, creative, strong, consistent, and individualized. We focus on character education, implementation of the Common Core state standards and the use of data to drive instruction, along with the well-being of everyone in the Jefferson family. We will, as a team, continue to work hard to ensure that your child receives the best education possible. 

As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors (in person or virtually when we need to Zoom)-teachers, students and parents-are excited to be part of the Jefferson family!  This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.  My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop by, call, or email me at any time.  
I look forward to working with you as a team member for the 2021-2022 school year. 



Brad Smith
