Welcome to Sturgis Elementary School. Sturgis Elementary school tour video presented by the 2018-19 Student Council.


Sturgis Elementary has dedicated teachers and support staff who work to ensure that all students receive the best education. The Meade District is emphasizing Character Education in its K-12 goals.  Please join us in teaching children the qualities of good people--trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.


Kindergarten Registration 

Please contact Chantal Ligtenberg at 605-881-1489 if you are in need of registration paperwork for your future kindergartner for the 2020-21 school year.  We will mail out the paperwork and ask that you return in the mail. Please also include a copy of your child's birth certificate and immunizations.  We are tentatively planning a possible screening day in August prior to the school year, however, we will wait to see if COVID 19 epidemic has slowed down prior to making concrete plans.
