About Rose Witcher Elementary

 SchoolCenter Picture

Rose Witcher Elementary opened its doors in 1950.  The school was named after the senior member of the entire El Reno faculty at the time, Miss Rose Witcher.  Superintendent Paul R. Taylor said at the dedication, "During the years of service in El Reno, Miss Witcher has influenced the lives of thousands of boys and girls toward high ideals and better living during her 36 years as a citizen of El Reno.  Certainly no person could be more deserving of the high honor conferred on her by the community in naming a school structure in her honor."  Miss Witcher retired after 42 years of teaching.

Rose Witcher became the 1st-2nd grade center in the 2008-2009 school year and has been a Great Expectations Model School for the past 7 years.  Presently, Rose Witcher serves approximately 385 students with 42 compassionate, enthusiastic faculty and staff members.
