About us

Verellen Elementary was built in the late 1950's and originally housed grades Kindergarten through 6th grade.  After that, Verellen was a K-5 building for many years. In 2005, we tiered our elementaries. Bush was a Y5-1 grade building. 

Verellen became a 2nd and 3rd grade building. Several years later, Hughes Elementary was sold and the 4th graders became part of Verellen elementary.  Viola Verellen is the namesake of our school. She was a teacher in our district for over 40 years.
