About Us

Welcome to New Glarus Elementary School!  We are experiencing a great year of learning and fun where we can grow and share.  Everyday is a new adventure at New Glarus Elementary School.

New Glarus Elementary is a 4-year-old kindergarten through grade 4 school serving approximately 425 students in our newly renovated facilities! Thanks to the parents and community members, we were able to completely renovate the oldest portions of the building during the summer of 2012.  Our updated facilities are beautiful!

We have about 45 staff members including general education and special education teachers, Title I teachers, specialists, paraprofessionals, administrators, and support staff.  We have a steady growth in enrollment at the elementary building.

We start each day as a whole school in the gym for the student-led Pledge of Allegiance, birthday announcements, lunch menus, and awards.  Each week, students are selected to come to the office for Lunch with the Principal.  We have great conversations during our lunches!

At New Glarus Elementary, "The Knight Way is the Right Way!"   Our Positive Behavior Intervention and Support plan centers on helping children to learn to Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe. Expectations for these behaviors are taught explicitly throughout the school.  Students are rewarded for their positive Knight Behavior with Knight Cards and random prize drawings.

We are fortunate to have an active PTO in our community working along with and supporting the school and district initiatives.  The PTO supports class field trips and the annual science fair as well as many other programs and projects.  We welcome and value parental involvement as an integral part of our school community.

We encourage you to tab through our website to learn more about the various programs New Glarus offers, along with curriculum initiatives and extracurricular activities.  I would also invite you to stop in and visit if you have the opportunity.

Sincerely,

Laura Eicher

Principal
