ELM ELEMENTARY

Community Consolidated School District 181



For more than 50 years, Elm School has provided a quality education for each student who enters. In our warm and caring learning environment, our students are challenged to reach for the stars, to believe in themselves, and to leave their mark as educated global citizens. Our Elm School family is committed to preparing our students to be balanced, lifelong learners and productive community members. Through a combination of dedicated staff members, involved parents and intelligent, creative students, we achieve this goal.

A Message from Principal Olson

Dear Elm Families,

My name is Sara Olson and I am your Principal at Elm School. This is my fifth year in this role and I am proud to be a part of our bulldog family! Working with our talented staff and your incredible children gives me many reasons to smile each and every day.

I value creating a safe, appropriate learning environment that allows each student to reach his or her full potential. That is my primary responsibility as principal. I also believe relationships have the power to move an organization forward. A building administrator plays an important role in supporting all members of the learning community, including parents and students.

If I can be of assistance in any way please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I look forward to working with you!

Partners in Education,

Mrs. Sara Olson
