THOMAS JEFFERSON HIGH SCHOOL
The Thomas Jefferson Alumni Association (TJHSAA) was formed in 2005 as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization.
The Mission of the Thomas Jefferson Alumni Association is to unify the alumni and the community to drive educational excellence at TJ by providing resources and services that make a real difference in the lives of students, teachers and our alumni.
We believe we have the best Alumni Association in DISD because our Alumni have demonstrated a heart for TJ students by giving their time, expertise and financial resources to help TJ kids. Our Alumni are grateful for the experience they had at TJ and want to give back to help the current students succeed.
TJ students have had tremendous success the last few years despite the tornado that demolished the school in ’20 and the Covid shut down in ’21. They are positive, motivated and looking forward to returning to their new state of the art school in early 2023. It will be second to none in DISD!
TJ students today, in many ways are just like our Alumni were when they attended TJ. They want to learn, make friends, have fun and prepare themselves for a great future.
Thomas Jefferson students today are also different in some important ways. They are less affluent in general, often need language support, many are from other places and don’t have full family units in place for support. Soccer is their favorite sport and many of them hold jobs outside of school. They face more challenges at home, getting to school and feeling comfortable in the school environment.
Our Alumni Association understands this and is constantly looking for ways to make a difference in the lives of TJ students
Since its inception the TJHSAA has provided a variety of support to TJ students and Teachers including:
WE NEED YOU!
The needs are great but the kids are worth it and we believe we are making a difference.
PLEASE CONSIDER JOINING THE TJHS ALUMNI ASSOCIATION. WE NEED YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT, A LITTLE TIME, YOUR EXPERTISE AND MOST IMPORTANTLY YOUR HEART.
