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.
Elmer Wood is pleased to welcome
Mrs. Kelli Parreira to the Elmer Wood family as our new principal.
Welcome Woodchucks to the 2014-15 school year! I am honored and humbled to be able to begin serving the students, staff, parents and community members of Elmer Wood Elementary School. The Elmer Wood staff is dedicated to the success of all of our students academically, technologically and socially in order to best prepare them for participation in tomorrow’s world.
Immediately apparent when you step foot on our campus is the culture and rich tradition that Elmer Wood offers our community. This culture is both one of academic excellence and of strong moral character. Students demonstrate the components of “The Elmer Wood Way” on a daily basis to include being kind and helping others every day, following directives and being the best one can be.
Staff expectations are high for both themselves and for our students. Staff are committed to providing instructional excellence as we transition into the era of Common Core State Standards in order to ensure that we develop students who possess the literacy and critical thinking skills necessary to master the standards of each grade level. Staff expectations of our Woodchuck students include a commitment to their education as evidenced by assignment completion, regular attendance, development of a respect for and love of learning and a sense of pride in their accomplishments.
We ask that parents and community members partner with us to continue to mold our students to becoming lifelong learners and assist us in creating our “masterpieces in the making.”
I am looking forward to an amazing year with each of you!
Principal, Elmer Wood Elementary School
