Welcome to Elkhart Elementary!

Mission Statement
"Elkhart Elementary fosters respectful, lifelong learners who use inquiry , critical thinking, and problem solving skills to be socially responsible individuals who positively impact our world."

Front of School

Elkhart Elementary School supports the District's vision to "Graduate every student with the choice to attend college without remediation." To achieve that end, our vision is to prepare students for success in middle school. We will achieve this by ensuring that every student can perform, at least, grade level proficiency in reading, writing and mathematics by fifth grade."

Energy use reduction practices at Elkhart are demonstrated by the polar bear---if he’s happy we’re reducing our energy use! If he’s sad, then we need to step up!

Principal’s Message April 16, 2015

Dear Elkhart Families:

Please remember that there is no school on Monday, April 20th because of teacher training.

Our new drop off system at the front of the building is working well.  Please continue to cooperate with staff at drop off and pick up times.

As we get to the end of the year, behavior problems tend to rise.  Please make sure that you speak to your child about being respectful to each other and all adults in the building.  We still have lots of learning to accomplish.  Disrespectful behavior takes time from everyone’s education.

Also, cell phones, electronic devices and cash are not to be out during the school day.  If you allow your child to bring these items, it is at your own risk.  We will not use staff to look for lost or stolen items.
