Welcome to Pelican Elementary School, home of the Proud Pelican Pirates! We are a K-5 school with eleven classrooms dedicated to creating strong relationships with 265 students and their families. We are located near Klamath Lake in an area of Klamath Falls formerly known as Pelican City.

Built in 1921, Pelican Elementary has a long tradition of teaching children the value of academic excellence, good character, and community service. In 2015/16, Pelican is in Year 2 Implementation of AVID to promote college and career readiness. Pelican staff promotes use of technology through use of a computer lab, interactive Promethean whiteboards, student computer stations, and Apple I-pads in every classroom. Supplemental programs support a comprehensive reading and math curriculum and teaching of the Common Core State Standards.

A member of the Healthy Schools Program, Pelican School strives to promote healthier living through the motto, “Eat Better, Move More”. A variety of physical fitness programs are held before, during, and after the school day: including walk to school days, recess/P.E., activity-a-thon fundraiser, health and nutrition education.

Pelican Boosters support total school success through active parent participation in and out of the classrooms. Parents and volunteers are encouraged to get involved at Pelican Elementary!

elementary fees

Beginning Fall 2015, all four elementary schools (Conger, Mills, Pelican, Roosevelt) will collect a flat school supply fee for students during registration.

This new process will make school supply shopping more convenient and affordable for families, and allow schools to obtain certain brands and quantities desired for students.

$25 for a Single student in grades K-5
$35 for a Family with multiple children at one school.

Please pay School Supply fees, and the additional playground equipment fee of $3.00 per child, at each school during registration.

**Each student will need a backpack and bring it to school every day**
