Dear Elmwood Parents and Families -
On behalf of Elmwood Elementary School, I would like to thank the parents and teachers for making this year a success. Due to their hard work and support, our children have grown and shown incredible progress. As this year ends and summer begins, we hope that everyone has a safe and happy summer, creating meaningful family memories. As your family goes on trips to the beach or amusement parks, we hope that you also include trips to the library. Reading is one of the best ways that kids can continue to grow their imagination and avoid the “summer slide,” the time where kids can lose reading skills. Parents, allow you children to see the fun in reading books geared towards them, such as comic books, graphic novels, or other children’s series. Also, do not hesitate to pick up a book yourself: it shows your children the importance of literacy, and it’s fun!
To our fifth-grade students and families, it has been an honor to see our children grow into the young ladies and gentlemen they are meant to be, and they will be missed as they go to the next phase of their journey. However, we look forward to future visits and hope they keep in touch. They will always be welcome back; after all, once an Elmwood kid, always an Elmwood kid!
To all students and staff, thank you for an incredible year! We can hardly wait to see you all in the fall!
