Parent Association

Parents and family members play an essential role in TJ’s success.


Serve and Support TJ

When you enroll your child at Thomas Jefferson, you automatically become a member of our TJ Parent Association (PA). This friendly and enthusiastic community of TJ family members shares your values and interests, including making education a top priority. Getting involved in PA is a great way to meet and socialize with other TJ families — and to contribute to enhancing the TJ community.

For more information about the TJ Parent Association, send an e-mail message to [email protected] or call TJ at (417) 781-5124.

Our Goal

In our efforts to enhance the quality of a TJ education, the TJ Parent Association provides service and support to faculty, parents, students, and school trustees. We open communication and facilitate understanding among all elements of the school community. We promote the school, bolster its efforts, and strive to improve the quality of experience at TJ.

Get Involved

In addition to the TJ Parent Association, TJ offers many ways for you to get involved — from the TJ Athletic Boosters to volunteering to make our Annual Giving Campaign a success.
