Get Involved

Our goal is to bring together our students, staff, families, and community members to help strengthen our community and classrooms. Our families and partnership is an integral part of the success at Jefferson. We encourage you to become involved in our PTA (Parent-Teacher Association) and VIE (Volunteers in Education). We welcome volunteers to read to students or participate in school activities or events. Your participation, support, and input are valued and are so essential to our continued success. We are excited about our work together this year.

What is Volunteers in Education?
The Volunteers in Education (ViE) program was created in 1977 and serves to enrich education in the Rochester Public Schools by making the time, talents, and expertise of parents/guardians, community members, and community businesses available to students and staff.

Rochester Public Schools encourages parents, guardians, grandparents, and community members to share their time, talents and knowledge with our students. Volunteers in our schools enrich the educational programs and strengthen our school relationships with families, businesses, and the community as a whole. The education of our students takes a community effort.
