The 2015-2016 Mark White Athlete of the Year Award goes to Johnathan Chan. This award is named after a former Jefferson student who was a phenomenal student athlete. The winner of this award is someone who not only has athletic success on the field of play but also succeeds within the walls of the classroom. Congrats, Johnathan!
Students in Jefferson’s Robotics class participated in the Annual LBUSD Robo Bowl Competition, which showcases the technical skills students are acquiring through participation in middle school STEM programs. JLA entered two teams in the competition – an 8th grade female team, and a 7th grade male team. Excitingly, both teams made it to the quarter finals. Go Jaguars!
Congrats to Ms. Sasaki (PE) on receiving the 2016 Extraordinary Teacher Award. This award recognizes and highlights the work and dedication that goes into being a teacher. We thank Ms. Sasaki for her dedication to all students. We are so lucky to have her here at JLA! Go Jaguars!
