<p>One of the oldest schools in the Chippewa Valley School District, Ojibwa Elementary boasts a rich history dating past that of the district itself. At the turn of the 20th century, a one-room schoolhouse known as the Dittrich School occupied the site of the present-day Ojibwa Elementary at the corner of 21 Mile and Heydenreich roads. Today, more than 700 students attend kindergarten through fifth grade at Ojibwa. Students learn core subjects such as math, science, social studies and language arts as well as music, art and physical education. A recent effort to educate students and celebrate the history and culture of the Ojibway tribe, for which the school is named, has resulted in the Ojibwa School Beautification Committee. The committee, composed of Ojibwa staff, has added Native American art to the walls and an impossible-to-miss dreamcatcher in the front atrium. An active PTO sponsors monthly market days and helps organize the fall and spring book fairs.</p>
