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 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!

October 8th Principal’s Message

ALL STUDENTS:

Dear Elkhart Families,

Please make sure that we are driving and walking safely before and after school.  Also, please obey all No Parking signs and other street signs.  Remember, all of this is for the safety of our students.  The seconds that are saved by not using crosswalks, parking in the wrong areas, and driving unsafely is not worth the risk of hurting a student.

Sincerely,

Ron Schumacher, Principal
