From the Principal’s Desk


Spring is definitely starting to try and show itself little by little! This is a welcome sight after a long winter, filled with a great amount of snowfall. As the weather changes we seem to acquire a ton of outdoor clothing from students on the playground or in halls. During Parent Teacher Conferences (or anytime this month) please stop by the lost and found to see if any of these articles belong to your son or daughter. Any items left at the end of the month will be donated to local agencies.

As many of you are aware by now Mrs. Tallman has retired this Spring and will be enjoying some time with family! We wish her the best and much happiness in her retirement. We truly appreciate her dedication to our school, community and students over these 16 years of service here at Elysian. We are grateful to have Mr. Malloy (coach!) step in to fill her role as our P.E. and Health teacher for the remainder of the school year. This change will impact our ability to offer Spanish as an elective for the 4th quarter. Our electives are set up as semester long courses, but due to the unforeseen circumstance, we will have to dissolve this option. In an attempt to offer something in exchange Mr. Malloy will be teaching a Theory of Sport class during this time and all Spanish students will have the option to join this class or join a different elective option as long as there is availability. This move will only be available for our Spanish elective class as this type of change would be a logistical nightmare at this time of year for all students. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
