Principal's Message

As spring quickly approaches, so also is the upcoming release of our term 2 report cards. For the first time, we will begin emailing out all report cards to parents. Moving forward all our report cards will be emailed home.

Our Family Celebration of Learning event was a wonderful afternoon and we truly thank all our families for attending the event. We appreciate your partnership. Our students (your children) look forward to having their parents attend this event. Please take a moment and answer a single question survey regarding the Family Celebration of Learning event.

I want to take a moment and wish all our Elmdale families a wonderful, safe, and relaxing spring break!

Take care,
