“Jefferson School of Mine”

Jefferson school of mine
School of the blue and gold
We’re with you hour by hour
With spirit untold
So give a long cheer for Jefferson
We’re always back of you
Jefferson will fight to the last 
and never d-i-e

Have you ever wondered how many times you sang our school song and where and when it originated? We can thank a very accomplished Jeffersonian…
