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.
