School History
The school is named in honor of twelve-year-old Elitha, daughter of George Donner. Little Elitha was one of the fortunate survivors of the Donner Party tragedy of the Sierra in the winter of 1846-47. Elitha Cumi Donner Wilder lived the rest of her life in the Elk Grove area and is buried in the Elk Grove Cemetery. She is Elk Grove’s golden link to the early settlement of California and a symbol of hope for children everywhere. A new permanent set of buildings was constructed at the Elitha Donner site in 1996 to supplement the portable buildings that were used for the beginning of the school.
