A Message from the Principal

FALL 2022

The 2022-2023 School Year is officially underway and the staff at Elmwood Elementary School is excited to provide a warm, welcoming, and safe environment with a blend of new and experienced staff members prepared to deliver a fine education for our students. From an academic standpoint, we continue to make greater strides towards “normalcy” by permitting students to love the things they are doing in the classroom, so that learning is engaging and fun. The Elmwood Elementary team is dedicated to helping students improve relationships, make friends, and develop into productive citizens with high aspirations.

Beginning the school year, we ask that you attend school prepared to try your best each and every day so that a true love for learning can be fostered. Families, we kindly encourage you to support your child’s academic journey of growth, stay in contact with your child’s teacher, and form the very important collaborative teamwork with staff members. Your help goes a long way!

An important reminder revolves around our new school hours. Please be aware that all students should be in their classrooms by 8:45 a.m. when the tardy bell rings and afternoon dismissal will be at 3:05 p.m. Students can enter the building as early as 8:15 a.m., but please, no earlier! This is being done to help enhance safety and traffic flow in and around the parking areas of the building. Thank you in advance for your flexibility!

Please be sure to consult the website and social media for upcoming events, such as Open House, Parent Teacher Conferences, Donuts for Dads, Muffins for Moms, and events aligned with Stay in the Game programming, which promotes attendance. Together, we’ll make this year successful! Thank you and Go Bulldogs!
