Principal's Message

Greetings Elm Families,

We've made it to the last Courier of the year! What a year it has been! I've been in absolute wonder of all of the things our students accomplished this year! You're truly an amazing group and our school commuity is better because of each and every one of you!

We continued our celebrations with Graduation on Sunday and then having our 5th graders over to welcome them for the 2022-2023 school year! We can't wait to have you and to our departing 8th graders we wish you all of the best in high school!

I hope you have an absolutely amazing summer! Be safe, have fun, and enjoy every moment! Be sure to checkout our 2022-2023 supply list and other annoucements for all things Elm and District 401 for over the summer!

It has been an absolute honor to serve the Elmwood Park Community this year and I look forward to working with all of our Elm Families next year! Have a great break!!!

Please take a few minutes and read through this week’s Courier! As always, should you need anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly. Stay safe! #TeamElmStrong

Most Sincerely,
Ms. Ashley Groeneveld
