Activities

Jefferson Elementary School staff know that children learn in many ways. School activities encourage fun while learning and promotes important social skills. Some of the excitement Jefferson has to offer includes:

- Athletics:  Various sports are available after school throughout the school year.  These include boys and girls basketball, soccer, volleyball and flag football.  Watch for more information in our student's take home folder. 

- Band:  
In 5th grade students are given an opportunity to try out the various instruments and then choose if they'd like to join band.

- D.A.R.E.:  Students in 5th Grade (Fall) participate in the Drug Abuse Resistance Education program which is taught by an officer from the Manitowoc Police Department.  The 10 week program teaches students how to resist pressures which may influence them to experiment with alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.  The program also assists students in problem solving, being good citizens, and making smart decisions.  At the conclusion of the program, students receive a certificate at a D.A.R.E. Graduation Ceremony.  

 
- Grandparents Day:  One of the most enjoyable and exciting days of spring is when students can showcase their school to their grandparents by inviting them to spend the morning with them at school.  This creates special memories that will last a lifetime. 

- Griffin Go-Getters:  Griffin Go-Getters is a service organization for 5th graders.  This student-led organization provides members with opportunities to perform service, build character and develop leadership skills.  They work together to help others in the community, state, country and world.  

- Orchestra:  5th graders can choose to become instrumentalists by opting to join orchestra.

- Positive Behavior Invention Support Program (PBIS):  This program rewards students with Griffin Gold tickets that they can turn in for prizes when they are acknowledged  for being kind, respectful, responsible and safe.

- UnitedOne Credit Union:  Jefferson students have the opportunity to learn about the importance of saving money by using our Jefferson UnitedOne Credit Union.  This credit union is open every Thursday morning before school.
