As on an artist’s palette consisting of many colors, so is the make-up of our school. The Elmer Wood Staff works to blend these colors to harmonize and bring out the true beauty of each child. Hence, our mission statement:
“Every Child is a Masterpiece in the Making” is the foundation upon which our school vision has been established. The ultimate purpose of education is to help each student develop academic skills and accept the responsibilities and obligations of good citizenship which lead to successful participation in tomorrow’s world. Our programs meet the diverse needs of all students, generate a sense of belonging, and nurture our youngsters as they each find their path through childhood.
The Winged Wonders Bird Show
Thursday, January 9th was a special day for the students at Elmer Wood; it marked the return of the "Winged Wonders" bird show sponsored by the Fresno Zoo. Our students were dazzled by owls, parrots, vultures, and eagles while learning about wildlife habitats and the care of exotic birds. Two assemblies went off without a hitch, and our students eagerly await the "Winged Wonders" return!

Parker Dazzles as Grizzles Promote Reading
The students at Elmer Wood welcomed Parker, the mascot from the Fresno Grizzles on January 22. Parker arrived with great jokes, music, and dancing, but he also came with an important message: reading is fun and important! Parker promised the students that if they read 10 books in 5 weeks, they would receive two free tickets to a 2014 Grizzlies game! Super exciting! Look for the flier sent home on Friday or read below for more information.
