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 250 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.
Kim Dunaway's 4th grade students at Pelican made turkey cranberry quesadillas as part of a nutrition lesson with Oregon State University's Klamath Extension on 12/11. They even learned how to slice spinach leaves in the french "chiffonade" style. The majority review: "Yum!"

Funded by the Pelican Booster Club, Portland's Traveling Lanterns Theater Company presented the story of Ebenezer Scrooge at Pelican Elementary 12/6. The actors used audience interaction and physical comedy to entertain while also conveying the serious message of Charles Dickens's "A Christmas Carol." As 2nd-grader Jayla said, "It was about being nice to people!"
