Hope you had a GREAT summer break! Now, looking forward to 2016…
On behalf of our Board of Trustees, teachers, and staff, I would like to welcome you to the start of the 2016-17 school year at Elk Hills School! We are very excited to begin the year with many new activities and programs designed to enhance our students’ learning, and our parents’ and community participation. I assure you that the Elk Hills School District wants to continue to build a strong partnership with you to make your child’s education the very best and as personalized as it can be. We invite you to be on campus as often as possible and to be as involved in school activities as much as your schedule will allow! We are looking for parent volunteers to support our school in many different ways, such as library supporters, classroom helpers, event supporters, Parent-Teacher Club members, sports coaches and more. If you would like to be involved with assisting the school and our kids, please call us at 765-7431. Together we can make a difference for our students!
