Welcome to our school family!  Chain O’Lakes Elementary School provides a unique education for the youngest students, grades kindergarten, one, and two.  We are also a Waupaca 4K site.  We have the pleasure of teaching and guiding our 4 year old students on acclimating to the school environment.  We are a very small, nurturing staff, providing standards-based education in a safe and beautiful environment.  Our building and grounds are uniquely located and to make the most of our seasonal surroundings.  Come and meet our staff and see how we work together each day to start off our youngest learners on the college and career path.  If you are looking for a balance between honoring the discovery playtime of childhood and preparing for higher academic achievement, we have it here.    Community service, character building, and environmental awareness are also part of our curriculum.  Parents are key members of our educational team.  We are growing together at Chain O’ Lakes Elementary School.
