Elm Grove Leaders

Message from elm grove administrators

September has quickly flown by and we have leaders working hard all over the building! One of the most important jobs we have as adults at Elm Grove is to keep your student safe. We have taken great measures to ensure that systems are in place for our students to be kept safe. Please help us by following the expectations of these systems. You will notice our safety patrol leaders working hard with the staff to help remind our students and parents where walking, driving, and riding is permitted. Please help them to do their job by following their directions. We appreciate their efforts and yours as we continue to keep Elm Grove a safe place.

  • Please remember that if you are picking up a walker and cones are placed out, these are there to avoid students being in compromising situations. Please help us make an extra effort to avoid potential encounters by following the warning signs.
  • We want to set an example for our leaders at Elm Grove. To do so, we ask that you use the crosswalks when entering and exiting the building from the parking lot.

Lastly, thank you to all of the parents who were able to take the time to visit about your child's progress during our Parent/Teacher Conferences. Whether in person or by phone, it is reassuring to see parents and teachers working together to make sure our students are successful. It sends children a strong message that we all care and are invested in their progress. Thank you for supporting such an important partnership!

As always thank you for your continued support!
