  • Iv'e been to Jefferson and I had the time of my life. They have great teachers, and evrybody is nice. Unfortuneatly my 4th grade teacher died last year. From her and all of the other teachers I have succeded into becoming an A+ student at my new school Valerius. From them I am in readig TAG, math TAG, and band. I really liked it there, but I moved and had to tranfer. I loved it there and I hope you do to.
