A Message from the Principal

Come and visit Little Canada Elementary where the District 623 motto "Quality Teaching and Learning for All...Equity in All We Do" is not just a tagline, but something that we actively strive for daily.

This is an exciting time for our school and district as we talk to our community about the upcoming building bond referendum vote on November 7. Our district is facing a number of challenges presented by growing student enrollment, outdated classrooms, and aging facilities. I hope you will take the time to learn more about how the building bond could impact our students, staff, and community members. For more information, please click here.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact me through our office at 651-490-1353 or via email

Yours truly,

Garin Bogenholm

A 2013 Reward School, Little Canada Elementary placed in the top 10% of Minnesota schools for increasing student achievement and academic growth while reducing the achievement gap.

Our school is home to the district's Dual Language Immersion Program and its Setting III Autism program. Reading and math are emphasized with added support for struggling students. We also have a Gifted and Talented Education program and use technology to enhance student learning. We have talented, caring teachers and staff.  The diversity of our students and families is one of Little Canada's greatest strengths..
