"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."
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."
Elkhart Elementary School is a Title 1 School.
A special part of being an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program is the 5th Grade Exhibition. For the second year, every 5th grader is participating in a collaborative project to present during the week of May 5-9, 2014. The transdisciplinary theme of this Unit of Inquiry is "How We Express Ourselves." The central idea all students are using is: People can make a difference in their communities through action. The topics of the group projects are: graffiti, homelessness, animal cruelty, floods, children with cancer, air pollution, bullying, stealing, kidnapping, drinking and driving, the environment, climate change, recess, exercise, college, homelessness, library resources and pet care. They are all working with a mentor staff member to create actions that truly make a difference in our community.
