Letter from the Center Administrator





My name is Yvonne Meza, Jefferson Head Start Center Adminstrator; the center staff and I are looking forward to working with you and your children this new school year. We will strive to continue to provide an exciting and rewarding educational program for each and every child.

In the past weeks, I have had the opportunity to meet our new students and get to know some of their families. The enthusiasm and the diversity of culture of the new members of our community truly inspire me, just as our current staff and students have done in my past year at Jefferson.

The AVANCE program year offers a wealth of educational resources and opportunities for participation, I hope to see many of you taking advantage of everything our program has in store for you,, which you will have first hand information at during our monthly parent meetings and Special Events.

Welcome, this will be the best year at AVANCE – JEFFERSON Head start center!

Yvonne Meza | Center Administrator | Jefferson Head Start
