On behalf of the entire faculty and staff at Elcan-King Elementary School (EKE), we are excited to have you and your child join us for the 2017-2018 school year. We are committed to providing excellence in all that we offer and look forward to the partnerships we create between the school, parents, students, and the community.
Each year we “Climb to Great Heights” as we work to provide the best instruction to your child. Providing opportunities and challenges that result in rewarding experiences is our focus at EKE.
Teachers plan daily to identify and incorporate teaching strategies that reinforce the needs of your child. Using your child’s data, differentiated instruction is provided to 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.
Our school belongs to you. We welcome and encourage your involvement at EKE. Getting “Plugged In” requires certification and is offered many times throughout the year. We hope that you will find a way to get “Plugged In.” Your involvement is important in the success of your child. 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” and “Agenda” will provide feedback regarding academics and behavior progress for your child. We encourage you to seek access to the parent portal. In the portal you will have information regarding your child’s current classroom performance and attendance. The more you are involved the better your child’s year will be here at EKE. We look forward to seeing you at all events we have planned for 2017-2018. Please call if we can offer any assistance. Together, through teamwork, community building, and a commitment to excellence, we are determined that this will be a great year! Start your “Climb to Great Heights” the “Bearcat Way.”
