Welcome to Thomas Jefferson Elementary School! My name is Lisette Tello and I am very excited to be working with you and your child. This will be the start of my second year working as a Kindergarten teacher. Prior to joining the Jefferson Jaguars, I was a Pre-K teacher for six years. I have obtained a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education from New Jersey City University. Be assured that I will do my best to make this school year an enjoyable time for your child, as well as a great learning experience.
I'm available to meet with parents and guardians to discuss student's progress or concerns. Please call the parent liaison at (201)348-5960 ext. 3111 to schedule an appointment.
Classroom Procedures and Policies:
Our class will have a folder system which will be our best way of communication. You should check it daily to see if there are any letters or papers that need to be returned to school. For any money or check being sent in the folder, please send it in an envelope with your child's name and amount.
Homework-Assessment, Test and Quizzes
Homework will be assigned Monday through Thursday. I will advise you in advance for any unit test or quiz that will be given to your child so you can review the material at home.
Thursday: Gym and music
