It was so wonderful to meet so many new families at our 'Kindergarten Preview' last week! If you are a current Elmwood family and have an incoming Kindergartner, we have included our Kindergarten preview presentation on our website. If you know of someone who may be new to Elmwood and is not on our current list-serve, please kindly share this information with our new families. Click on the title of this section for the link to take you to the Kindergarten Page with the Preview Presentation.
We continue to have numerous students who are tardy to school every day. Our doors at Elmwood open at 8:00 am each day with the expectation that students are in their classrooms and ready to learn by 8:15 am. Several studies have shown that school tardiness has a negative impact on learning outcomes. By the mere nature of arriving late, students miss out on instruction, important morning announcements and the morning procedures that are in place in the classrooms that set up students for a successful start to their school day. Regular attendance and arriving to school on time are vital to a student’s success in school. We are looking for your partnership and cooperation regarding this important matter. If we can assist you or your child in getting to school on time, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
Please be aware and courteous to our neighbors surrounding Elmwood during pickup and dropoff times. We ask that you do not park in such a way that you block homes’ driveways (no matter how quickly it may be), and that you also do not park in the teacher and staff lots. Thank you!
