The French Club is designed to enhance the classroom experience by promoting culture: food tasting, movies, games, video clips, etc. The main calendar events are: National French Week (1st week in November), holidays’ celebrations in winter and spring and representation at the school’s international fair in February. The Club is open to all interested in the French Culture without the requirement of taking French classes. All French students are required to be members of the French Club.

Students create a 28-page full-color literary and arts magazine in the spring called Magna Artifex, that showcases creative student work including poetry and creative writing in English, French and Latin and Spanish, and artwork such as photography, sculpture, pottery, paintings, and drawings.
Students in grades 9-12 work diligently throughout the year to produce the Cavalcade, Thomas Jefferson’s annual yearbook. Using the latest technology available, including Adobe Photoshop, InDesign and other current applications, the students complete all phases of the publication process: planning, photo shoots, digital photo editing, composition, copy editing and proofreading. Our staff of Upper School students also assists in selling the books, contacting and working with potential advertisers and coordinating efforts with the publishing company. Beginning in 2007, the book was 100 percent digitally produced and in full color.
