On behalf of our entire school community, I’d like to welcome you to Elvehjem Elementary School. Whether you have been a part of the Elvehjem Elementary family for many years, or are new to our school, we look forward to working with you.
At Elvehjem we work hard to provide positive learning experiences, relationships and engagement for all of our students. We have long standing traditions that include high quality academic programs paired with a strong sense of community among families, staff, and students. As we continue to strive to create a warm and welcoming environment, we encourage all of our families to become active participants in the learning process. The entire Elvehjem staff looks forward to establishing a strong educational partnership with you for the benefit of your child. Staff members are committed to challenging every student academically in an environment that is child-centered, safe, culturally responsive and supportive of learning. Clear communication between home and school is a necessary link to the learning process.
I encourage you to become involved in whatever way works best for you; supporting student learning in the classroom by sharing your hobbies and areas of expertise, joining our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) to support our School Garden and community activities and partnering with your scholar's teacher to support a joyful and productive educational year. We welcome your involvement and look forward to working and learning with our students. Together we can continue to make Elvehjem a wonderful place where each child has a positive and successful learning experience.
Sincerely, Sarah Larson,
