Design the Trojan Mascot
In an effort to create a singular, unified Trojan mascot for Elmwood Community Schools, the Elmwood Board and Administration are looking for a community effort to create/find a mascot that would serve as the representative for our school “brand.” Anyone is able to submit an entry. Once all forms are collected, there will be a committee of coaches, teachers, administrators, parents, and students to choose the top choices. From there, we will have a district-wide vote on which Trojan mascot will be used to represent Elmwood Community Schools.
Entries are due by October 30. To download an entry form, please click on the link below:

The Mayan Trail
This past June, Mrs. Welch and 11 students and adults from the Elmwood/Brimfield area spent a week in Mexico exploring many sites of the Yucatan Peninsula. Our group was joined by two other smaller groups; one from California and one from Indiana to increase our total size to 23 participants. The 7-day trip was filled with activities lead by our wonderful guide, Delio Aguilar.
We began in Cancun at the lovely and all-inclusive Cancun Bay Resort. Then we journeyed to Merida stopping in route at the famous colonial town of Villadolid. In Villadolid we viewed murals depicting the enslavement of the Mayan by the Spanish and the eventual revolt of the proud Mayan people. We enjoyed the local handcrafts and the colonial atmosphere. With Merida as our home base, we traveled to Cenote Selva Maya and had the opportunity to swim in a beautiful Cenote. Some of the more daring travelers even jumped off the cliffs into the waters.
We visited the Mayan town of Santa Elena where we toured a Mexican school and our students had the opportunity to interact with these Mayan students. Our boys played basketball and had an incredible height advantage. As teachers we were able to converse about the curriculum of a typical public school. Our students were able to practice their Spanish and their students took advantage of this opportunity to employ their English skills.
We also explored Uxmal, one of the most impressive archaeological sites on the continent. That evening under the stars, we enjoyed a spectacular sound and light show at the pyramids. Every traveler left the show knowing that Chac was an important rain god of the Mayan people. The next day we visited Celestun National Park and enjoyed our boat tour while learning a great deal about the thousands of migratory waterfowl that live in this protected area. We enjoyed the mangrove trees and once again had the opportunity to swim in a Cenote.
That afternoon we enjoyed the beautiful Gulf of Mexico while splashing in the waves and collecting many shells. On Sunday we visited the largest archaeological zone of the Mayan world, Chichen Itza considered to be one of the New World’s seven wonders. We marveled at the astrological skills of the Mayan, their expert pyramid building, and the amazing ball court. We even visited the palapa home of an elderly Mayan gentleman who was an herbalist and was greatly admired and well-known for his home-made remedies. He was truly a living example of the blended cultures which exemplify Mexico.
We returned to Cancun for some free time on the beach, or at the pool, and of course some shopping and bartering at the local, traditional market. It was truly a delightful trip crammed full of historical knowledge on the Mayan culture.
This was Mrs. Welch’s final tour with Elmwood students and I am so thankful for the experience. What a nice way to end a career that has afforded me the opportunity to expose Elmwood students to foreign travel and my gift of talavera will be forever cherished. Now on to the next chapter of life, I’m looking forward to my Alumni trip to Italy this summer with my 20 travelers and hope to continue to be able to offer and to share these exciting travel experiences in the future!
