METS College Fair!

Ever imagine you would attend a college fair at a Mets vs. Dodgers game at Citifield?!  On April 25th, students from Jefferson attended the 2nd annual Mets College Fair and got to watch a game — it was a beautiful day!


106 and Park!!!

In collaboration with BET and Entertainers for Education, 20 Jefferson students attended a live taping of 106 and Park last week!  The trip was made possible by the “I Will Graduate” campaign (see t-shirts below).  We got to see the “behind the scenes” of a TV show, meet the hosts, and have a lot of fun trying to be the loudest audience we could be.
