A Message From Our Principal
Greetings Elmhurst Families,
I hope this newsletter finds you well and safe. We just completed our eighth week of school and we have five weeks remaining in our first trimester. A huge thank you to all our families for partnering with us, supporting your student, and adapting to virtual learning. We know the past two months have not been easy but know that the work you are doing to support your student is very important. Please make sure to monitor your student’s Canvas page for information pertaining to your student’s learning. Elmhurst Staff are working diligently to engage and support your student. We are in this together and we will continue to support and serve, however we can. We are better together!
With compassion and care,
Picture Retake Day is coming soon!
Attend Today, Achieve Tomorrow! Its time to SOAR!
The number of days missed matters!
Whether excused or unexcused, the number of days your student misses can greatly impact their academic success. Families should strive for regular attendance. Regular attendance means having, on average, less than two absences per month. An absence is defined as missing 50% or more of their scheduled day.
Connect every day!
Daily attendance and engagement of students is expected whether students are participating in classes in-person or remotely through distance learning. All students are required to connect with remote learning every day, both synchronously and asynchronously.
If your child needs to be absent from their scheduled learning time, contact your school to report the absence (253-298-3500). Every absence, tardy and/or early dismissal needs to be reported to your child’s school. In alignment with Franklin Pierce Schools Policy 3122 and OSPI’s Emergency rule for 2020-21 school year, office personnel will determine if the absence is excused or unexcused.

Virtual 200 Club
Staff at Elmhurst wanted to continue with weekly recognition of students even as we are engaging in distance learning. Our students continue to demonstrate the characteristics of SOAR which are: Safety, Ownership, Achievement, and Respect. Each week teachers nominate a student from each cohort and our specialists nominate a student from primary and a student from intermediate. The list of all nominees can be viewed on the Canvas announcements on Monday mornings. Principal Mondragon records a weekly announcement of the winners who are drawn. Those students receive a card from Mr. Mondragon and their names are put on our 200 chart for a chance to win an upcoming special surprise.
