Parent & Community Organizations


In the service of its educational mission, Elm Middle School seeks to build collaborative relationships with parents and members of the larger Elmwood Park community.


Our Partners


To this end, Elm welcomes the support it receives from Parents and Teachers (PAT), Band Boosters and the Elmwood Park Educational Foundation.

District 401 Policy Guidance 


For the District 401 policies that guide our relations with parent and community organizations, see the following sections of the Board of Education’s Policy Manual:

► 8:90 — Parent Organizations and Booster Clubs 

► 8:95 — Parental Involvement    

Please note that District 401 is not, and will not be, responsible for a parent or community organization’s business or the conduct of its members.    

In addition, money that a parent or community organization gives to a District 401 school cannot be earmarked for any particular expense. 

Organizations may make recommendations, but cash or other valuable consideration must be given to the district to use at its discretion.
