Rice Lake Elementary was built in 1980. We are located on the corner of Elm Creek Blvd. and 89th Avenue in Maple Grove. The student population for the 2017-2018 school year is 750 Prek-5 students. We offer many special programs including: Speech and Language, Full Service Support staff, Occupational Therapist and D.A.P.E. services, English Language Learners program, Skills programs, Physical Education classes, Music and Vocal classes, Talented and Gifted Programing, and Band and Orchestra classes. In addition to special programs, Rice Lake has a counselor, school psychologist, social worker, intervention assistant and a behavior intervention teacher providing support to students and staff. We take pride in our volunteer and Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) programs at Rice Lake. We encourage volunteerism at all ages. Parents, grandparents, and community members volunteer on a regular basis in classrooms and within our very active PTO. Students have many opportunities to volunteer in the cafeteria, office, kindergarten classrooms, and more. Rice Lake is lucky to have support from community members, families, staff, and students.
