TJ Time Capsule Print E-mail
For the past 14 years, students and staff have wondered what is in the TJ Time Capsule as they passed through the Fine Arts Hallway.
Do you know what is inside?  Do you have any ideas?  We'll be asking students for their ideas soon.  Watch this space for their predictions.
We'll be opening the time capsule on April 13, 2015 at 9:45am in celebration of Thomas Jefferson's birthday!
What should be put back into the capsule for the next generation of TJ students?  Let your teacher know your ideas.

Jump Rope for Heart 2015 Print E-mail
Thursday, 26 March 2015 12:34


Every year, TJ participates in the American Heart Association's Jump Rope for Heart drive.

Students in all grades eagerly sought donors and earned rubber ducky rewards.  Over the past two weeks, students discovered new ways to jump rope: with partners, using stretchy bands and noodles and more. Thank you to the many parents who watched over the many fun and interesting stations set up by Mr. Greiner and Ms. Huber.  Students learned how to keep their hearts and bodies healthy by making good eating and exercising choices.  

At one of the "rest" stations, everyone filled a wall with their "Heart Hero" actions, as shown above.  

Thank you to the FCEPTA for supporting a teacher grant to the PE teachers for covers to protect the ipads which were used at another "rest" station.

Students raised over $17,000.
