Moore Elementary is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. High standards for quality education are assured by membership in NCA. This accreditation is based on the school’s commitment to excellence and quality programs.
Marshall T. Moore Elementary opened in the fall of 2000. It was named for one of the district's first Board members who were instrumental in consolidating four small, rural districts into what is now Union. The school was built on land which was originally part of the Moore farm.
This is a combination class of first and second grade students. The students remain with the same teacher for two years. Students receive instruction based on their personal academic level regardless of age or grade. The teacher builds a strong sense of community among the students, while allowing the second year students to be leaders to the younger students. We currently offer four multiage classrooms.
First/Second Grade Looping
This same-grade configuration allows for students to remain with the teacher for both their first and second grade years. This continuity allows for continued academic progress and a greater connection between the student, classmates, and families. We currently offer two first grade and two second grade looping classrooms.
This very popular group is an after-school program which meets once a week. With guidance and supervision, the students are challenged to run/walk to meet their individual goals. Students are encouraged to participate in weekend runs. Parents are welcome to participate. Pre-K and kindergarten students must be in attendance with a parent.
This exemplary music program, complete with movement, song, and instruments, is offered to our fourth and fifth grade students. Students perform for a wide variety of events. Students meet weekly before or after school.
During this after-school program students will create a work of art suitable for framing or display. Several elements of art are introduced and taught during this program. This is a special program the students look forward to each year.
Open to grades third through fifth. Students meet before school and share information with their classmates. The student council plans school, service and community projects.
Fifth graders assist parents, teachers, and students before and after school at our entrance, exit and hallways. These student leaders are recommended to these positions by the classroom teachers. A new group is selected for first and second semester.
Moore students produce a news broadcast every morning. The studio is located in the media center, and the broadcast is shown via classroom TV monitors throughout the building. KMOR goes “on air” 8:25-8:30 Monday-Thursday and 9:00-9:05 Friday mornings. Our studio provides leadership skills and technology training to 16 fifth graders who apply and are selected to be crew members (camera technicians or teleprompt technicians). It also provides a leadership opportunity to all fifth and fourth grade students, who volunteer to be news anchors, two per day during the school year.
Moore students identified as gifted/talented are provided an instructional program which supports, enriches and differentiates the regular educational curricula. The teacher, Dr. Evelyn Roberts, is a certified enrichment specialist. In 2012, she received certification as a gifted and talented enrichment from the Oklahoma State Department of Education.
Union students at the elementary school level use the outstanding Everyday Mathematics curriculum. In addition, fifth grade students may participate in sixth grade Accelerated Math, a computerized information system which individualizes practice and testing. There are 76 objectives in the Accelerated Math library of sixth grade math skills. Students who master the 60 qualify to take a final examination in the spring. If a student is successful on that end-of-year test, parents will be offered the opportunity to enroll him or her in the “PreAlgebra” math class at the beginning of the sixth grade school year. Accelerated Math is facilitated by Dr. Evelyn Roberts, with support from fifth grade teachers.
Moore offers an English Language Learner curriculum to those students for whom English is not a primary language. Students participate in small group instruction that focuses on the English language.
Character Counts is a district-wide program from kindergarten through high school for students and staff. It gives us a common language and encourages outstanding character traits. A new character trait is introduced each month. The six traits that are emphasized are Respect, Responsibility, Caring, Trustworthiness, Fairness and Citizenship.
