We urge you to get your ballot-Elida Renewal Levy Depends on Your Vote!
Voter participation has been low, according to the Lima Newspaper.
The Elida Renewal Levy is critical to the district to cover expenses for the next FIVE YEARS and will not mean any new taxes. Thank you!
Finished ballots MUST be returned to the Board of Elections by April 28th.
Congratulations to the Students of the Month March 2020
Important Information for Seniors & Reflector Yearbook News
Important information regarding sending photos for the Senior Slide Show, purchasing the "Reflector" Yearbook, purchasing senior ads, and deadline details is available HERE.
The yearbook "Unleashed" is still on sale online for $75 at yearbookforever.com.
If you have questions please contact Katherine Glenn at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Reflector Yearbook staff wants to assure you that despite the school closing and the cancellation of spring events, we are still doing our very best to produce a beautiful and inclusive yearbook to commemorate 2020.
We are documenting the history being made due to the Covid-19 outbreak and attempting to capture the strength and resilience of our bulldogs in words and images. The yearbook will still have the same number of pages and quality content -- you will will still be getting your money's worth, although it may look a little different than in the past!
You can help us do this by continuing to upload your own images to the Yearbook Snap account via yearbookforever.com or one of the Yearbook Snap apps.
We are also asking that parents of seniors who participate in spring sports submit images of their students from prior years in uniform or playing. If you have video footage of past games or highlight reels, these can be sent to email@example.com.
We are attempting to create a spring sports tribute to recognize the seniors who did not get to participate in their final season at Elida. If your student has signed with a university to play baseball, softball, tennis, run track, etc., we would also like to include that information. We can't take pictures of actual games this season, but we can try to give them the same recognition our fall and winter athletes have in the book. Thank you!
Seniors: We Want Your Senior Pics! #elidaSeniors2020
