If you grew up to become an avid reader, your school librarian likely helped you sustain that passion. National School Librarian Day allows people to celebrate and acknowledge their hard work. Thank you, Jenni Lloyd, ES Librarian, and Michael Spangler, MS/HS Librarian, for all you do for the students and staff of Jefferson West. TIGER ROAR!!

Radium Girls
Plan on coming to the High School on Saturday, 3/23, for our Theatre Troup’s production of "Radium Girls" written by D. W. Gregory. Curtain is at 7pm. Synopsis – In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage - until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court. Radium Girls is a fast-moving, highly theatrical ensemble piece. Called a "powerful" and "engrossing" drama by critics, Radium Girls offers a wry, unflinching look at the peculiarly American obsessions with health, wealth, and the commercialization of science.
