Elmore Family Update – June 6, 2022

Dear Elmore families, This is a reflective time of the school year as we look back on all that we have accomplished and memories we have made together.  This year presented many challenges as we navigated through another year of a pandemic. Slowly things have become more “normal” again.  This year students were able to have desk partners, we were able to do some field-trips and …

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 …

Elmore Family Communication – February 4, 2022

Dear Elmore families, Due to adverse weather conditions on Thursday and a planned day off for Teacher Professional Development today, we had a rather abbreviated week with just three days.  This now makes our highly anticipated 100th day of school Tuesday, February 8th, rather than Monday, the 7th.  Therefore, students have gained an extra day to complete their 100th day projects (now due on …
