We hope you have a restful Thanksgiving Holiday. Thinking about our Elmwood family, I am so very thankful to work with the best parents, kids, and staff I know. I appreciate your support, the students' hard work and boundless enthusiasm, and our teaching and support staff's tireless dedication to making our learning community great. Enjoy your holiday. --Mrs. Abraham


We've had quite a few cars pull into the daycare pickup area during dismissal every day. This causes a problem for the daycare providers who are on a tight schedule between all of the Elementary Schools in town. If you are picking up your child from school, please be patient, turn right, and use the pick up "loop" as described in this newsletter. Once we get moving, dismissal goes smoothly and quickly! Thank you for your help with this!

Picking Up Kids Early...

Please remember that when picking up your child early from school, we will need to see your current (valid) photo ID. This is just one of our procedures to ensure the safety of children at Elmwood Elementary. Thank you so much for your support!

It's Getting Cold Outside!

Now that the weather is changing, please make sure your child is appropriately dressed for the winter months. This means warm jackets, hats, scarves, and gloves when necessary. As long as the temperature is above 32 degrees, we will be going outside for recess. We have found quite a few articles of clothing that are missing their owners. If your child has lost a sweater or jacket, please encourage him or her to check our lost and found. Thanks!
