Home and School Overview

  • Welcome to Elmwood Home & School!
    We are a parent-run, volunteer organization that works with our teachers and school staff to support the learning environment at Elmwood.  Our Home & School hosts several programs and fundraisers throughout the school year to not only provide more for your student but also a social outlet to get to know other Elmwood families.  The funds raised support the H&S annual budget and fund your student directly with programs that are offered each year.

    Who is a member of H&S?
    We All Are! As parents of an Elmwood student, we are all invited to attend H&S meetings and volunteer for committees. Even if you work full-time or have little ones at home, we have something for everyone. Let us know your availability and we’ll help find something that works for you!
    When are Home & School Meetings?

    We have a limited amount of meetings because…LIFE IS BUSY WITH YOUNG KIDS!  However, our meetings are jam packed with GREAT information about life at Elmwood.  We also provide day & night meetings to help accommodate all schedules.
