Dear PAML Families, This week we recognize teacher appreciation week nationwide.  It’s a really good opportunity for all of us to pause for a moment and consider how much the school adults in our student’s lives mean to all of us.  The last couple of years have been especially tough on our educators in a multitude of different ways.  I hope you’ll join me …

Elmore Family Update – April 11, 2022

Dear Elmore Families, Last week started with a lot of gusto!  It feels like the children have been bursting at the seams with energy these past few weeks.  Spring fever perhaps?  I am working hard to slow the pace down while giving them more outlets for their physical energy (in the form of more outdoor time).   We ended the week with an early dismissal and …

Elmore Family Communication – March 7, 2022

Dear Elmore Families, Week 25 was short and sweet.  Wednesday, many students walked through the door for the first time in nearly two years without a mask!  It was so great to see their smiles and hear their voices clearly!  Understandably, we are not all comfortable going without masks quite yet, but this is a huge step. Wednesday morning also saw the return of …
