Upcoming Events


Welcome to Countryside Elementary!


    We are so grateful for the opportunity to teach your children not only academics but character traits as well. This year our theme for Best Bulldog Behavior is “GRIT in Giving!”  We’re excited to spend the next year exploring the idea of working hard at being respectful as well as giving to others. We’re connecting with a school in Africa called, The Amazing Love School through pen pals, FaceTime and fundraising to dig wells, and purchase farm animals.  We’re excited to watch our students experience the blessing working hard and giving to others. 

  Your support of our Best Bulldog Behavior to be responsible, respectful and safe is so important to us. We want to make home to school connections whenever we can. As always, it is a blessing to work with you and your children as we serve together striving to meet the needs of all our students.  

Gratefully, Mrs. Knowlton
