Jefferson Elementary students can expect to have music instruction often - Pre K has music once a week for 30 minutes, K-3rd /twice a week for 30 minutes and 4th-5th/one hour a week. Each student is graded on content skills based on the Arkansas Frameworks for music. They will receive at least four letter grades per nine weeks which will be posted on ed-line.

JES loves music! Rules and procedures are established during the first couple of weeks of school. We practice CPR: Cooperate, Participate, and Respect!

Jefferson students are encouraged to have fun and enjoy PE! To achieve this, they are expected to participate to the best of their ability in our activities. Each month, students will receive a "Health at Home" calendar. JES encourages parents and siblings to complete the calendar activities together!

JES is focused on being fit. In addition to Physical Education classes, there is also a Patriot basketball team and spirit squad.
