Dear Elmcrest families and community members,
Welcome to the 22-23 school year at Elmcrest Elementary School, home of the Dragons! We are excited to welcome all of our Dragons back to campus this year and continue to learn together. This will be my third year as Principal of Elmcrest, and I am excited to welcome a few new faces to our Administrative team this year.
Mrs. Ruby Pierce is joining our team as the Learning Facilitator.
"Hello, my name is Ruby Pierce. I have been teaching in Washoe County School District for 17 years in the areas of Kindergarten, 4th grade, 6th grade, and special education. I am excited to join the Elmcrest family as the Learning Facilitator. When I am not educating our future, I like to travel and experience new cultures, as well as playing softball, volleyball, and bowling."
Mr. Ryan Linton is joining our team as the Dean of Students.
Bio coming soon!
This year, we are focusing on moving our students and learning into the future. We have worked hard this summer to give our buildings a face lift and have added some new technology. We are trying new schedules and have new teacher teams. As we have seen over the course of the last few years, change is inevitable and we are eager to see what change does for us at Elmcrest. However, we are committed to keeping our Dragon culture where our teachers are committed and determined to make your students’ Elmcrest experience memorable and enriching. Our teachers are highly qualified, talented, and passionate educators who are ready to offer a rigorous academic curriculum intertwined with social emotional learning. Over the past few years, we were able to provide much needed technology to our school. This has allowed most grade levels to move to a digital format. You can expect your students to continue to be digital learners as we move forward.
Thank you for sharing your incredible children with us, and we look forward to the year ahead watching our students grow and succeed.
