On behalf of the entire faculty and staff at Elcan-King Elementary School, we welcome you and your family to the 2016-2017 school year. We are committed to a great year and look forward to the partnerships between the school, parents, students, and the community.
Each year we strive to provide the best instruction for your child through proud traditions as we "Climb to Great Heights" at Elcan King Elementary (EKE). Providing opportunities and challenges that result in rewarding experiences is our focus at EKE. We will work daily to identify and incorporate teaching strategies that reinforce your child’s learning style and create challenging learning opportunities. Differentiated instruction will give your child the opportunity to reach his/her fullest potential. Core academic subjects remain a priority, as well as providing a learning program that builds each year to reach local and state standards.
As we begin a new year, please know that this is your school and we welcome and encourage your involvement. Find a way to get "Plugged In." We encourage you to become a trained volunteer, schedule parent-teacher conferences, attend workshops throughout the year, attend PTO meetings, and check your child’s work daily. The “Cougar Cable” will provide you continuous feedback regarding both academic and behavior progress for your child. Access to the parent portal will provide you information regarding your child’s current classroom performance and attendance. Your involvement here at Elcan-King will only enhance your child’s educational experience. We look forward to seeing you throughout the 2016-2017 school year. Please call if we can offer any assistance. Together through teamwork, community building, and a commitment to do our best, we are determined that this will be a great year! Start your "Climb to Great Heights" the "Bearcat Way".
