Florence Markofer Elementary School History
The school was named for Florence Markofer, an active community person and a local historian who had also been an educator. Florence Polhemus Markofer was a graduate of Elk Grove High School in its early days. She lived her entire life within the community of Elk Grove. She was a dedicated person who gave unselfishly of her time and energy to assist others. Although previous Elk Grove schools had been named for living persons (Anna Kirchgater and Isabelle Jackson, for example), this was the first time the unified school district named a school to recognize the contributions of a living person.
