Summer Updates

Dear Elmwood Elementary Families,

I hope everyone is having a fantastic summer and spending time together as a family. It is hard to believe tomorrow is already July 4th! It seems like just yesterday that we were dismissing students for summer break. With school just around the corner, I wanted to provide you with a few updates:

  • School Supply Lists are available on our website. The Parents’ Club is also sponsoring the School Tool Box program for families who wish to skip shopping and buy their supplies in bulk with the school’s. The link is on the website.

  • Registration for the 2019-2020 school year will begin the first part of August. We will be providing specific registration instructions for online registration later this month, as well as maintaining open office hours in which you can register your student(s) in person.

  • Class Lists will be released once registration is finalized. We know students are eager to find out which teacher they will have, but with families moving into our district during the summer months, we want to make sure lists reflect final enrollment numbers to ensure equitable and cohesive student groupings.

  • Backpack Night will be August 13th, at 6:00 PM. Our annual Backpack Night provides students with the opportunity to drop off their school supplies and most importantly meet their teachers.

  • The first day of school will be August 14th, and I can’t wait! The board approved 2019-2020 calendar is available on our website.

Once again, I hope you are out enjoying your summer by spending as much time as possible with your families. If you have any questions regarding school supplies, registration, class lists, Backpack Night, the school calendar, or any other concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at:; by phone (309)742-4261; or by stopping by the Elementary School and saying, “Hi!”
