School History

Anna Kirchgater Elementary School  is named for the legendary Anna Kirchgater, a long time teacher of Elk Grove Grammar School. Miss Kirchgater also taught at the country schools of Michigan Bar, Victory, and Jackson. She was renowned for her strict discipline and her no nonsense expectations for all students. The school was built to ease the overcrowding in the Elk Grove elementary district due to the post World War II housing boom. As a brand new school in 1957, there were grandiose plans of housing what seemed like a huge enrollment of 300 students in the new school.

Each classroom teacher works with his/her class to emphasize the Elk Grove Unified School District’s Physical Education Standards and Benchmarks with objectives posted in lesson plans. Materials and equipment have been purchased to assist teachers with the teaching of skills at each grade level. 5th Grade students will also participate in a Physical Fitness Test compiled by the Elk Grove Unified School District’s Physical Education Steering Committee. This test is very similar to the Presidential Physical Fitness challenge. Students must wear appropriate clothing and lace-up or velcro fastened type shoes, preferably rubber-soled, to provide for safer participation in the physical education program.
