Principal's Message

  • Dear Jefferson Families,

         I wish the best of luck to the new fifth graders that will be attending Lincoln Roosevelt School in the fall. I know that Jefferson School has best prepared you for your educational journey! Please keep us updated in your future successes and visit us often.

          Thank you for your patience and understanding during the last few months of this school year. I would like to take a moment to formally introduce myself to the Jefferson School community. I am Melissa Cosgrove and I have been recently appointed as Jefferson School’s next principal for this coming school year. I have been lucky enough to service the school district as a supervisor of curriculum for the past two years. It has given me the opportunity to get to know the students, staff and parents in the Roxbury Public School District. I have covered Jefferson School at times and I am excited to make Jefferson my home for next school year.

         Jefferson School will have an “Open House” on August 27th from 10am – 2pm. I look forward to meeting everyone and getting to know the students of Jefferson School! From what I have already seen, they are simply amazing people that have already impressed me in many different ways. I can’t wait to experience a full school year with you all.

         Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns. Our summer hours are 9:00 am – 3:00pm. We will be closed the week of July 20th. The best way to reach me is via email at or by phone at 973-584-8955. Have a fun and safe summer! 

    Melissa Cosgrove
