Dear Elmwood Parents and Families -

Welcome to Elmwood Elementary School, where teachers and staff members are nurturing and friendly, and where we will do everything possible to ensure the comprehensive growth of your child. The Elmwood staff graciously cares about our students and values families that work hard to help supplement the learning process. During the 2018-2019 School Year, we eagerly anticipate building a strong relationship with you.  On a daily basis, students will be challenged from an academic and behavioral standpoint. Our goal is to help them build the skills they need to be successful during their time at Elmwood, and beyond. Parents are strongly encouraged to become involved with Elmwood initiatives, and this truly begins with the reinforcement work you can do at home with your students. Please read with them on a regular basis, participate in PTA and attend parent/teacher conferences. We expect our parents to be equal partners in our students’ success. More specifically, Elmwood students will be participating in a new phonics program that will help students more effectively. During the process, new strategies for learning will emerge and we will be certain to share them with parents, in addition to Nurturing Parent, a new program that will be launched this year, in partnership with Ohio Guidestone. Finally, Elmwood families are encouraged to read the newsletters that go home.  We want to make sure that we keep you informed about upcoming events.  Lastly, please participate in school and district programs such as Family Fun Night.  Take every opportunity to show your child that his or her education is important and that you are a committed partner in his or her success.  Let’s make our Elmwood community a thriving, supportive and encouraging family!  I look forward to seeing you throughout this School Year! My door is open to you any time, if you have questions or concerns! Thank you!
