Turkey Your Principal….and the Winner is?

Fairbury Jr-Sr High School had the most food donated for the “Turkey Your Principal Food Drive”, which was sponsored by Mrs. Hamel and FCCLA.


From Mr. Molloy:
“Who would have known so many lessons could be shared with students simply by wearing a turkey costume?  Some important lessons I hope students learn today are:


(1) The importance of commitment and follow-through.
(2) Unique situations can either be rewarding or negative.  It is your approach that determines the outcome.
(3) It is ok to laugh at yourself.

Relationships matter and I certainly hope students have enjoyed seeing me in a turkey costume for the majority of the day! #jeffpride”

Congratulations to Fairbury Jr. Sr. High School for the largest donation of food for the Turkey Your Principal food drive!

First Time Ever – Reading Rally!

Just what is Reading Rally you ask?! Reading Classic was a literacy event sponsored by the Nebraska State Reading Association. Sadly, last year the Reading Classic competition came to an end.

Under the guidance of Annette Weise from ESU 5, the local ESU 5 Schools have started Reading Rally. Reading Rally will have two different divisions – Grades 3-4 and Grades 5-6. Reading Rally’s goal is to promote a love of reading. Schools within the ESU 5 area have formed lists of books for the two divisions. These lists have been offered to students at Jefferson Intermediate.

There are many wonderful books. The ESU 5 Schools selected Golden Sower, Newberrys, Caldecotts, and other award-winning books for the Reading Rally lists.

Students that make the team will meet weekly for meetings as provided in the schedule below. At practice, students bring questions that they have written about the books they have read. We practice these questions; along with other questions about the books on the lists. Practices are a time to talk about the books we are reading and to practice for the real competition.

The competition will be held on April 17 at ESU 5. We are still working on the times. There will only be one competition with ESU 5 Schools this year.

Grades 3-4
Grades 5-6

The first meeting will be Tuesday, November 29, 2022, at the Jefferson Intermediate Library. The meeting will begin at 3:25 and end at 4:00. We will review the expectations of being part of this team. Student/Parent Contracts will be given and must be returned by December 6, 2022. Ready Rally practice question forms will be available for students.

I look forward to working with Jefferson Intermediate’s students in our first year with Reading Rally!
