Rush Elementary School
"In Partnership with Home and Community"
Rush Elementary School is the smallest of three elementary buildings in the Tamaqua District. This building is home to our Kindergarten, Kindergarten Plus and First Grade classrooms. It is located just north of Tamaqua in the community of Hometown.It is our goal at Rush Elementary to pass along a love of learning to all of our students. This is fostered by our efforts to provide a safe and positive educational environment throughout the year. Parental help and cooperation in meeting this goal is paramount. By working together, we can achieve great things for all of our students.
