Greetings! Caledonia Elementary School is a tremendous place to learn. As educators, we strive to build excellence in our daily interactions so that our students acquire the knowledge necessary to be successful in all areas of life. One way in which we seek to do this is by honoring traditions while also providing innovative teaching strategies.

Cal El consists of grades Kindergarten through fifth grade, with a student population of approximately 370 students. Embedded within our school are many devoted and caring staff members whose mission is to make student learning interactive and engaging. Our staff is comprised of highly qualified teachers, as mandated under federal legislation, in addition to skilled support staff members. These individuals provide instruction in 15 regular education classrooms. We also provide special education and Title I services for student needing additional or more specific instruction. Moreover, special classes such as music, art, physical education and Spanish are also offered to students.

Besides our wonderful educators, one of the aspects that make the above-mentioned environments so engaging is technology. The school is fortunate to have an exceptional facility, updated with document cameras as well as desktop and laptop computers.

Our community is critical to what we do each day. Parents and loved ones are always encouraged to become involved in their child's schooling experience as this helps to secure academic achievement.

In closing, we hold to a phrase that encapsulates the past and the future, "heart and heritage". My hope is that you learn more about this phrase, or said differently, more about who we are, throughout the information on this site as well as other artifacts or conversations you may have with people representing Caledonia Elementary School. Truly, Cal El is a fantastic place to be!

If you have questions regarding our school, please call the office at 616.891.8181.
