Jill Putnam

Welcome to Jefferson Kindergarten!

My name is Jill Putnam and this is my 4th year teaching at Jefferson.  I grew up in Bozeman and taught in that area, before taking some time off to raise my two sons.  I am proud and excited to be a part of Jefferson Elementary School.

Mrs. Putnam and Mrs. Thisselle’s Kindergarten classrooms will be having a grade level Christmas Party on Friday, Dec. 22! We have broken the party into 2 parts and are looking for families to come help at one or both of the party times. At 12:15-1:40 the classes will be doing holiday activities in the 2 classrooms such as Christmas Bingo, making candy cane reindeer, coloring etc.  We will then be continuing the party at 2:20-3:00. Students will be frosting graham crackers in Mrs. Putnam’s room and then watching a holiday movie and having popcorn in Mrs. Thisselle’s room. Again, all families are welcome to come!
