Elmora School No. 12’s Annual, “Welcome Back to School” Night was a great success. On Thursday, September 19, 2013, over 500 parents attended the Welcome Back Assembly which featured AVID students as color guard, Student Government Members singing the Elmora School Song, and an inspirational PowerPoint presentation displaying teaching and learning at Elmora School No. 12. The high light of the assembly was the fashion show, which featured students Pre-K to eighth grade modeling their school uniforms. In attendance were Elizabeth Board of Education Commissioners, Stefan Callela, Fernando Nazco and Carlos Trujillo. The Board Commissioners spoke of the uniform policy and the importance of parental involvement in the school. The Physical Education teachers talked to parents about making healthy food choices, and concluded with a “Jam a Minute”. Parents, students, and teachers all had a workout. Finally, parents visited classrooms where teachers discussed the curriculum, viewed their children’s work which was displayed throughout the school, and were able to leave their children written messages in which the staff attached healthy snacks and were given to the students the next morning. The evening ended with juice and marshmallow bars for everyone.
