It was a great pleasure to have your children at Elmonic this year. They have learned so many things. I am proud of how your children were challenged to navigate school online with so many new learning platforms, and they did it so well! Your children have grown so much this year. They are smarter, bigger, stronger, and wiser. They are all certainly more responsible, more mature, and very resilient. This group of Elmonica students can do anything!
I look forward to most of you returning in the fall. We will return to school on Wednesday, September 8 under "nearly normal" conditions. I will share all of the details in our August welcome back letter using a new parent communication platform called ParentSquare. You will receive more information about ParentSquare from the school district by the end of the month. (Download the parent app! I already have it for my student.)
If you are moving over the summer please contact the front office with that information at your earliest convenience.
Have a lovely summer reconnecting with friends and family.
Please be sure to return your student's device after school is out on the 18th. The return schedule is outlined below. If you have a hotspot or Kajeet, please return those as well. Thank you.
ParentSquare Facebook Chat
The Beaverton School District will be launching a new communication platform called ParentSquare on June 28 to replace SchoolMessenger. We encourage you to watch this 3-minute video.
If you have questions, please join us for a Facebook chat. We’ll be on hand to answer questions on Tuesday, June 29 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. Please note, this won’t be a live video event but a real-time chat through comments.
To learn more about ParentSquare, visit our ParentSquare webpage.

Library Service Update:
This summer we are expanding service hours at both locations!
Beginning Monday, June 14, the hours of operation at the main library will be Monday - Wednesday, 10 AM - 7 PM; Thursday - Saturday, 10 AM - 6 PM; and Sunday, 1-6 PM. The hours at the Murray Scholls branch will be Tuesday & Wednesday, 10 AM - 7 PM; Friday & Saturday, 10 AM - 6 PM; and Sunday, 1-6 PM (closed Monday & Thursday). Additionally, both locations will have very limited seating. The computers at the main library will move upstairs and more computers will be available. Holds pickup inside the library is now self-service at both locations.
