Jefferson Elementary School, which was completely renovated, re-opened in 2003. The facility supports kindergarten through grade six classrooms, as well as outdoor fields for district and community recreation.

An important component of our success has been the strong relationships between students, staff and families. We will continue to focus on relationship development as we recruit more parents and community members for our school-wide enrichment clusters. Parents will have many opportunities to participate in the education of their children from enrichment clusters to STEM nights to parent nights to the Books and Beyond Reading Program to volunteering in the classroom. Students and staff will be given high levels of intentional support to meet the goal of “All students being successful learners.”
