Jefferson’s Robotic class participated in the Annual LBUSD Robo Bowl Competition on May 5, 2018. This competition showcases the technical skills students are acquiring through middle school STEM programs. Participating students designed, constructed and programed robots which were entered in the competition. The team entered two robots and were successful in completing the first round of the competitive process. Congrats to our students and their instructor, Mr. Curry on a job well done! Additionally, appreciation is expressed to Southern California Edison and the Orange County (CA) Chapter of The Links, Inc. for their program support.

Breast Cancer Awareness

Pink Day

Every year, the students and staff of JLA show their support for Breast Cancer Awareness by wearing pink. We call this Pink Day


During Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October and throughout the year—people wear pink to honor survivors, remember those lost to the disease, and to support the progress we are making together to defeat breast cancer.

State law requires all public schools to create a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about your child's school, which includes:

  • School Description and Mission
  • School Programs and Instructional Materials
  • Opportunities for Parent Involvement
  • Test Results
  • Safety Plan
  • Facilities

We invite you to view the School Accountability Report Card (SARC) for your child's school.  You can find your school's SARC here.
