Patriots, it’s time for the Book Fair! During your LA classes over the next two days, you’ll be coming to preview the spring offerings, some of which you saw in the flyers passed out last week. You’ll be able make purchases during the school day today as well as during conferences.
As you shop, be on the lookout for new titles by some big authors like Neal Shusterman, Marie Lu, Marissa Meyer and Veronica Roth. You’ll also find 16 out of the 20 titles from the 2018 Rebecca Caudill list!
Today is the LAST DAY for students to complete documentation for the 2017 Rebecca Caudill program. Contracts/Reviews must be submitted to your LA teacher or Mrs. Sherry by the end of the day today. Students whose paperwork reflects that they have read and responded to at least three of this year’s nominees will receive an email to their district account with a link to online voting which must be completed by 3 pm on Tuesday, February 28th.
Congratulations to the 12 students who correctly identified the LA blocks in their grade with the highest percentage of eligible Caudill voters. For the sixth grade, that’s Ms. McNamara’s 7/9 block with a school-high and pretty amazing 95.5%. For seventh grade, Ms. Palubicki’s 6/8 block was tops with 68% of the class qualified to vote for the 2017 winner. You’ll be receiving Patriot Pay from your LA teacher.

Naperville North is running a camp for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders interested in playing football. This camp is a 7 on 7 no tackle camp. Players will work on passing, catching and defending the pass. If you are a student hoping to get better at football so you can play here at Jefferson next year, at North next year, or anywhere else, this would be a great camp for you. The camp takes place inside in Naperville North’s Fieldhouse on Sundays nights from 7:00 to 8:30. If interested, you can register on line at napervillenorth.8to18.com/dashboard/catalog. If you have any questions ask either Mr. Rester or Mr. Bil.
Congratulations to the 7th grade AA team as they beat Madison 29-20.
The 7A Patriots traveled to Madison and beat the Warhawks 27 to 4. We look forward to taking on the undefeated Kennedy Eagles tonight.
The 8A girls got off to a sluggish start last night against Madison, dropping only one bucket in the first quarter. But the ladies quickly recovered, going on an 18 point scoring drive in the 2nd and 3rd quarters. Final score: Madison – 10, Jefferson – 22.
The 8AA basketball team dominated Madison last night as they won by a final score of 35-3. With their tough defense, the Patriots held Madison to one made basket for the entire game. Eight different girls scored for Jefferson making it a great team effort. Great game 8AA!
