School buses and minibuses transporting students must go directly to Parking Lot #36 on Mountain Avenue. Please park in the back of the lot away from Mountain Avenue.

2017 Private Vehicle Parking
Parking Permits will not be issued to parents and family members. Free street parking is limited. Metered parking lots are available.

The State of Jefferson Scavenger Hunt questions were constructed with the intent that all answers could be found in a middle school, branch library and/or the Internet. The teams are encouraged to use people resources (teachers, parents, community members) to get tips and leads if they come to an impasse or did not know how to proceed.
The goals of the State of Jefferson Middle School Scavenger Hunt are: 

  • Students will increase knowledge of how to locate information.
  • Students will learn teamwork and organization in an academic arena.
  • Students construct a persuasive argument with supporting evidence.
  • Students will learn the importance of precision.
  • Students will have fun with academics.
