Welcome to Townline Elementary 

We, the staff of Townline Elementary School, believe that all children will learn academic and life-related skills through a variety of strategies and materials that are developmentally appropriate. We will assure a safe, positive learning environment, rich in acceptance and respect, in which each child will master the district learner outcomes and reach his/her highest level of learning. We accept responsibility, in cooperation with our school community, to teach children skills essential for life-long learning.

We believe

  • A child's education must utilize and involve families and the entire community.
  • Each student can learn and is entitled to a comprehensive, quality education that reflects the expectations and needs of society.
  • Every student should be given opportunities to reach his/her fullest potential in the mastery of skills and content.
  • In fostering an appreciation of diversity and providing a curriculum that affirms that diversity.
  • In providing a safe and secure environment for each student and staff member.
  • In providing an equitable curriculum which includes a variety of environments and instructional methods.
  • In evaluating the mastery of essential skills and content through a variety of assessments.

A positive attitude of the school community toward learning is a result of pride, respect, and responsibility for self, others, and the environment.

2016-2017 Kindergarten Waiver
According to Michigan Law, if a child residing in Kentwood Public Schools is not five years of age on September 1, 2016, but will be five years of age not later than December 1, 2016, the parent or legal guardian of that child may enroll the child in kindergarten/young 5s for the 20162017 school year with a waiver or a written notification to the school district.
 
A school district that receives this waiver or written notification may make a recommendation to the parent or legal guardian as to placement. Regardless of the district recommendation, the parent or legal guardian retains the sole discretion to determine whether or not to enroll the child in Kentwood Public Schools if the student is five years of age not later than December 1, 2016.
