The National Jr. Art Honor Society with the leadership of Ms. DiGioia-Laird created a mosaic mural. The mosaic has cork, stone, glass and ceramic tile. The completion of this artistic piece represents the pride our students have at Thomas Jefferson Middle School. The mural brightens our entrance hallway.
The Chuck2 project was inspired by Photorealist artist, Chuck Close and the imagery of Chuck Taylor sneakers. Ms. Bovadikov’s 136 art students in Gr. 6-8 chose two ½” square pieces from a photo to create in graphite. Students shaded each piece using a spectrum of values.The goal of this cooperative art project was to demonstrate that great things happen when we work together.
We are pleased to unveil our newly renovated Foods and Consumer Science Room. Our 8th graders will be very pleased to use the new FCS room with all new applicances, countertops, furniture, and cabinets. Thank you to the Edison BOE for giving TJMS a wonderful experience for our students.
Thomas Jefferson Middle School is proud to announce that we will be offering the AVID elective in the 8th grade for the 2014 - 2015 school year. AVID's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.
