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 that "Every student shapes a successful future." 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!

August 21st Principal’s Message

Dear Elkhart Families:

Please make sure that you drive safely and follow traffic laws.  There have been several violations of this, which puts our students at risk.  Also, please do not block the driveways of the homes around our school.  I have had positive relationships with our neighbors; please respect their property.

Also, Back to School Night is on Thursday, August 25th from 5:00-6:30 p.m.

August 14th Principal’s Message

Every Kid Can
Dear Elkhart Families:
Wow! This was the smoothest beginning of the school year that I have ever seen. It was great to see everyone return.
I am very proud of our students and families. It was evident that many of you made sure your student read this summer; our testing results came back strong. Keep it up! Make sure your child reads a minimum of 20 minutes a night all year long.
Back to School night will be August 25th. I look forward to seeing you there.
Ron Schumacher
