Dear Parents (Spanish Version):
Welcome to Elmwood Elementary School and the 2016 -2017 school year! I hope this letter finds you enjoying your summer vacation. The Elmwood staff and I are looking forward to seeing all of you in August for another outstanding school year.
If you are new to Elmwood, I encourage you to attend the new family tours. The tours will be held on Monday, August 15th at 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Please meet in the Multipurpose Room. During this time, families new to Elmwood will have the opportunity to receive a tour of the building, meet other Elmwood families and have questions answered as we assist you in your transition to your new school.
