Our Elm Lawn eagles have had a wonderful start to the school year this fall. The PTO hosted the first meeting of the year on Thursday, September 14th at 6:30pm in the LMC at the lawn. In attendance was a robust group of parents; our fearless leader, Principal Rust; and the school counselor, Taylor Klinzing. Principal Rush shared many highlights about the first few weeks of school. In particular, she noted that the changes to the lunch and recess schedule have been very positive, with our children showing up to class 'ready to learn' in the afternoon. She also shared that the staff have instituted a new PBIS initiative that involves reinforcing students with an 'Elm Lawn Fantastic Feather' when they demonstrate behaviors consistent with school rules and expectations. Taylor Klinzing provided a wonderful presentation to the PTO to share about her role as a school counselor at Elm Lawn and her role in the school-wide support for student wellbeing and social and emotional growth. We have several exciting fall events to help us celebrate the new year as well; so mark your calendars:
