Welcome to Jefferson Elementary!
At Jefferson School there is a sense of family - a bond between children, parents, staff and community. It is through this connection that the Jefferson family holds high its mission of bridging the gap between the prekindergarten to fourth grade and the middle school as it provides for the achievement of all students and enables our citizens to become motivated as life long independent and group learners. We currently enroll 587 students.
The programs at Jefferson include strong academic curricula which are enhanced by art, physical/health education, DARE, vocal/instrumental music and computer science. In addition to a computer lab with twenty-seven IBM compatible units, there are networked units in each academic instructional area including resource centers, special education rooms and Academic Achievement classes. Access to the Internet is also available through these units.
We are proud of our uniqueness and importance in the molding of our young adults.
The activities at Jefferson include Parent Involvement Programs such as Family Science offered in the evenings for children and their parents; a School Improvement Initiative with staff, parent and community participation; a partnership with Vauxhall Library offering training and library cards enabling students to access resources at the Public Library; a Gifted and Talented Program; a schoolwide Recycling Program; Community Service Projects including Knights of Columbus Food Drive; UNICEF; Ethnic Pride Day, Participation in Township Environmental Clean-Up; Writers-In-School Project; Language Arts and Math Olympiads, Youth Week Spelling Bee; Student Literacy Journal and an active Student Council.
