Yellow Jackets Period

General Information

  • Yellow Jackets Period (or “YJP”) is a branch of the Arlington Tiered System of Support (ATSS) at Thomas Jefferson Middle School.
  • YJP generally meets Tuesday-Friday from 8:03am-8:33am. This schedule sometimes changes due to special school events.
  • During each YJP Rotation, students will be assigned to a teacher to receive help in a subject, participate in extension/enrichment activities, or to learn something new in order to support every student’s personal learning needs.
  • All YJP Rotations are connected to either the APS Curriculum or the IB MYP Curriculum.
  • The YJP Rotations for 2019-2020 are as follows:
    • Rotation 1: September 24, 2019-November 1, 2019
