Halloween will be celebrated at Elmwood on Tuesday, October 31st. Parade will begin at 1:15 PM – all students will exit out Door 17 while taking two laps around the track. If weather is poor the parade will be indoors and viewing will take place in the multipurpose room and Gym.
Thank you to all those who came to McTeacher Night. It was a big success, earning over $1150 for our school. Lots of fun was had by all. Additionally, The Dave Cleveland Fun Run was a huge success as well, exceeding its goal and raising almost $8500 for Elmwood! Congratulations to the winning classes: Highest amount raised: Mrs. Czerak’s class and Highest participation percent: Mrs. Anderson’s class. Way to go Eagles!
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!
Dear Parents (Spanish Version):
Welcome to Elmwood Elementary School and the 2017 -2018 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. Please note that that this letter and packet of information is only being sent to each individual Elmwood family and not to each individual student.
If you are new to Elmwood, I encourage you to attend the new family tours. The tours will be held on Monday, August 14th 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.
