Principal's Message

By Mr. Kevin Seibel, Elmwood Elementary School Principal

Welcome to Elmwood Elementary School, home of the Panthers!

Our theme this year is Visible Learning — the process that happens when teachers SEE learning through the eyes of the student, and when students SEE themselves as their own teacher.

Students need to understand what they are learning and why it is important.

Our goal is for our students to know where they are in their learning continuum, and to collaborate with their teachers to develop a plan to reach their grade level goals and beyond. The active involvement of parents in their children's education helps to foster this development of lifelong learners.

This is our 104th year of educating the children of Elmwood Park. Working closely with Elmwood parents, we will continue to strive for the betterment of our community through the growth of our children.


Mr. Kevin Seibel
