Dear Elmwood Parents and Families -
Elmwood Elementary School has experienced a great start to the 2017-2018 school year and I thank everyone in our school family for making this a productive first 9 weeks. Students continue to work hard and PAWS expectations throughout the building have been established and are being reinforced. Be sure to inquire with your child if they bring home their ‘Bulldog bucks!’
Over the next several months, students at all grade levels will focus on developing a strong academic work ethic, with teachers pushing to ensure that learning potential is maximized. Parents can help by reviewing each child’s backpack for homework each day. An additional 20-30 meetings of reading every night helps children with vocabulary, fluency and the comprehension skills needed for academic success. ‘Unplug’ every now and then from technology to help your students with their educations!
Please remember that fall and winter weather is right around the corner, and warm coats, hats, scarves and gloves are necessary. If you have difficulties providing warm winter clothing, just let us know. We’d be happy to provide some!
Finally, as we enter a season of promoting strong work ethics, parents can always play a critical role at home by remaining involved in your child’s education with all of the suggestions above. Please contact me at any time with your questions!
