Principal's Message

Welcome Woodchucks to the 2023-2024 school year!  I am honored and humbled to be able to continue 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 both academically and socially in order to best prepare them for participation in tomorrow’s world.

     At Elmer Wood, “Every child is a masterpiece in the making.” The ultimate purpose of education is to help each student develop the necessary skills to become college and career ready and to accept the responsibilities and obligations of good citizenship which lead to successful participation in tomorrow's world.  We are confident that our programs will meet the diverse needs of all students, generate a sense of belonging, and nurture our youngsters as they each find their own path through childhood.    

    This staff expects students to commit to their education by completing all assignments, attending school regularly, developing respect for learning, taking pride in achievement, and following the policies and procedures that are explained in this handbook.  

     Remember, school success is directly proportional to the student’s efforts toward success.  Aim for the stars if you want to be one! 


With gratitude,

Laurie Havel, Principal
