Welcome to Elmwood Elementary

Hello Elmwood Families!

       Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!  Whether you are beginning your first year with us or are already an Elmwood ‘veteran’, please know that we are here to welcome you and support your academic, social, and emotional journey!

      At Elmwood, we value relationships and strive to build and sustain positive and meaningful connections with our students.  We do this through building classroom communities, with a focus on engagement - engagement in curriculum through high quality instruction, engagement in content with differentiated access points to support the needs and growth of all students and engagement with each other through collaboration, exploration, and socialization.  Our staff works to meet the unique needs of all of our second and third grade learners, and we look forward to partnering with families throughout the year to provide each student with a joyful school experience.  

      Mrs. Tynan and I are looking forward to a wonderful year filled with excitement, joy, and positive growth for all members of our Elmwood School community!
