Welcome to the Elliott Elementary School website. I am honored to be the principal at Elliott working with amazing students and families and a wonderful group of dedicated professionals. Our priority is to provide a high quality education for every student, every day. We are dedicated to inspiring children to become lifelong learners.

Elliott Elementary School serves children in Kindergarten through Fifth grade. Our staff works closely in collaborative teams as well as with the administrative team to provide a focused program of instruction.

At Elliott Elementary School, we provide a safe, orderly and respectful environment that promotes high levels of student engagement and performance. We honor the diversity and unique strengths and talents of each of our students and dedicate our efforts to help them experience individual success.

There are two guiding principles for acceptable behavior at Elliott Elementary: first, it is never okay to be hurtful; and second, it is never okay to be disruptive.

Thank you for your interest in our school and for visiting the online home of the Elliott Owls, the wisest kids in Lincoln!

Warmest regards,
