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.

September 11th Principal’s Message

Dear Elkhart Families:

Carnival is on Thursday night from 5-7 p.m.  Hope to see you all there.

Please make sure you are checking that your student is doing their homework each night.  Practicing at home with reading and math is necessary for your student to be successful.

Sincerely,

Ron Schumacher
