For the safety and health of our students, the playground is now closed before and after school. There has been an increased number of unsupervised students on the playground at these times and the faculty and staff are not available for supervision during these hours. We ask that students leave campus immediately after school unless they are participating in a school sponsored after school event. Also, as posted on signs around campus, there is to be no riding of scooters, skateboards, hoverboards or bikes while on campus. Thank you for your cooperation.

Over 75 Volunteers Beautify Jefferson Elementary

Aloha Everyone,

This past Saturday, over 76 volunteers from First Hawaiian Bank, Hawaii 3Rs, Doubletree - Hilton, Alana Waikiki Beach Hotel, and members of our JES TEAM spent in their morning in helping to beautify our campus. You may have noticed the freshly painted parking lots (that right .. . both parking lots were painted). First Hawaiian Bank painted all of hte parking stalls and curbs. They even had enough paint to repaint our hopscotch area with our school colors . . blue and yellow! Doubletree - Hilton Alana Waikiki Beach Hotel, Hawaii3Rs, and members of our TEAM (Joyce Felipe, Suzanne Williams, Celia Viernes (and her family), along with 2 of my children) laid wood chips around the base of our trees and constructed a total of 10 raised planter beds. All projects were completed within a 3.5 hour timespan. We all worked as a TEAM to accomplish all of the days tasks.
