"MJRs" (MARTHA JEFFERSON RANDOLPH) - The MJRs were organized in 1932 to serve the school. Martha Jefferson Randolph was the eldest daughter of Thomas Jefferson. Because her father was a widow when he was elected President, she served as First Lady during his administration. She also gave birth to the first child born in the White House.
MJRs is a social club serving the school. During the year is the initiation of new members, service work in the school, culminating with a mother/daughter luncheon at the end of the school year. The main purpose of the club is expressed in its motto - "Lasting friendship through sisterhood."
