School Song

White and Blue, White and Blue,
They’re our colors it is true
We’re the Jaguars from Jefferson School.

In our work, in our play,
We are glad that we can say,
We are valued at Jefferson School.
We are proud of you,
Our colors are white and blue,
Our school is the very best by far (Rah Rah)
And whenever we go –
You will always know,
We’re the Jaguars from Jefferson School.

Yes, the Jaguars from Jefferson School.
