Jefferson Curriculum/Programs

Jefferson Elementary

Character Counts

The district's character education program - Character Counts! - includes six character qualities taught and reinforced during the year. Each site develops its own program around these character qualities.

Gifted and Talented Program

Children who are identified as “gifted and talented” may participate in additional academic studies, having demonstrated potential abilities of high performance capability and needing differentiated or accelerated education or services.

Extended Day Program

The Union Extended Day Program (EDP) was created to provide safe, alternative educational child care, enhancing the child’s extended day for students enrolled in kindergarten through seventh grade.


The Reflections program offers students the opportunity to create works of art for fun and recognition. Students in preschool through grade 12 are encouraged to create and submit works of art in six areas:  dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography, and the visual arts (which includes art forms such as drawing, painting, print making, and collage).


Students, through their art class, may participate in an annual fine arts festival showcasing the creative works and talents of elementary and secondary students.


Union Intramural Sports provides Union students opportunities to participate in athletics at a recreational level in flag football, basketball, and volleyball.
