From the Principal's Desk

Dear Elmwood Families,

A new year is upon us, and here at Elmwood, our school year is roughly half over! We have a number of upcoming events that are highlighted both in our video above and in "Upcoming Events" below.

A new calendar year presents opportunities to for us to set goals with our children for their learning for the remainder of the school year. Whether your child wants to master their math facts or increase their reading skills, we are here to support them!

As always, if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas, please do not hesitate to reach out. Thank you!

Mr. Lerner & Mrs. Hagins
