Jefferson Middle School Endowment Fund
The income from the school endowment fund provides Jefferson Middle School the opportunity for school-based grants to support creative and innovative projects in our school.
For the 2017-18 school year this funded the following projects:
- A student-led club focused on raising mental health awareness, educating the school community, supporting students, promoting services and supports, developing and creating advocates and leaders, and creating a greater dialogue for mental health and wellness. The club is open to any student. Training and support for club leaders are provided by NAMI Wisconsin. Funds helped purchase an iPad for video, photos and to document and share information about the club; t-shirts, awareness wristbands; training manuals’ licenses for role play games; and snacks for after-school club time.
- Purchasing a set of 25 classroom ukuleles for 6th, 7th and 8th-grade general music students. Music teachers will use these instruments with the nearly 60 students to promote creativity and innovation in music classes. Jefferson music teachers believe this is a unique approach to helping engage students in general music classes.
