Home and School Overview

  • Welcome to Elmwood Home & School!
    We are the parent-run volunteer organization that works with our teachers and school staff to support the learning environment at Elmwood. Home & School hosts several programs and fundraisers throughout the school year to raise money for our school and encourage Elmwood families to have fun together. The money we raise provides funding for class holiday parties, field trips, assemblies, classroom supplies, the school garden, new library books, Watch DOGS, Science Fair, school directory, Field Day, after school clubs and so much more. We also coordinate volunteer efforts for various programs and events throughout the year.
