Jefferson is home to the OCC Teacher of the Year!

Linda Kallas.JPG

Linda Kallas, our very own Art and Drama Teacher, was selected as the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce and OUSD's Teacher of the Year!  Believing that natural talent comes in a variety of shapes, forms, and sizes, Ms. Kallas has been creating artistic treasures with our Jefferson Falcons for the past 20 years.  With compassion and respect, Ms. Kallas enthusiastically and vigorously shares her passion for the arts with the students she embraces as her own.  Through her efforts, the Del Mar Fair has become a regular display venue for the many award-winning pieces she helps her students create each year.  Ms. Kallas always stresses tolerance and has a knack for developing a unique rapport and lasting bonds with her students.  On her own time, she volunteers at the Oceanside Museum of Art, implementing lessons for the children of Oceanside.  Congratulations, Ms. Kallas!!!

Jefferson Brag Board!

Jefferson has been doing great things!  Congratulations to our teachers and students!

Ms. Schlosser and her PE classes were selected as the West Coast winners of the "I AM A HERO" contest through Plymouth State University.  Students had to draw a picture of their hero and write why they chose that person as their hero.  Some students wrote, "My mom is a single mom who works 2 jobs and still cooks for me every night."  "My dad has been to Afghanistan 3 times."  "My father who tells me never give up because I can be whatever I want to be."  "Dr. Bunrasi because he tells me I can."  We are so proud of our Falcons!

Ms. Strathman received another fully funded project through DonorsChoose.org for a new project called "Junior Engineers"!  Congratulations!
