Welcome to the Hillrise Elementary website! We are the Hillrise Huskies, and we are Husky Strong! Hillrise Elementary is an elementary school in the Elkhorn Public Schools district serving students in kindergarten through fifth grade. 

I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such persevering students, dedicated staff, and supportive school community. We focus on student success by communicating high expectations for learning, implementing a rigorous curriculum, as well as providing a safe, respectful learning environment for all students. 
Our staff collaborates to deliver effective, research-based strategies in order to motivate and engage students and provide them the tools necessary to reach high levels of performance. Our goal is for every student who enters our school to develop a lifelong love of learning and gain an extraordinary educational experience. We are committed to continuous school improvement to ensure students meet their fullest potential and continue our tradition of academic excellence. 
Hillrise is fortunate to have an active PTO, various community business partners, volunteers, and supportive families. Their work provides and supports educational experiences to help our Hillrise Huskies grow. We value the partnership of our school community. 

Please call or email if I can assist you.
