Elwood Elementary School
For the Month of July - 2014
Parents....please add your address to your child's backpack the first week of school if he/she rides the bus because sometimes we find that you have moved and the address was not changed!

The first day of school for Elwood students will be Wednesday, July 30th. Class begins at 8:00 at EES and students are released at 2:30.
Back to School Night:
Join us to meet your teachers and for free HOT DOTS, CHIPS and DRINKS July 29th at 6:00 p.m. We will meet in the gym first and then go to classrooms!
Our lunch menu will be online next week. Please note the times for lunches this year:

EES Library to Be Open:
Our EES library will be open every Tuesday during the summer from 12:00 - 3:00! Come and check out lots of books! READ, READ, READ!
Don't forget to LIKE us on FACEBOOK for news and cool pictures! (Look for Elwood Elementary School - the page with the school picture and a picture of one of our "hallway painted characters" on it!) I think there is another Elwood Elementary page that is not the one we use!
