School is back in session and our school system is a big part of our community.
I know it's hard for me to stay in touch with the school activities since all our kids are out of school.
Many Friday nights I sat in the bleachers, ate nachos and hot chocolate as I watched the football team and listened to the band. Some of my favorite memories were going to the Winter concert and enjoying the choir and band. Now I don't have to miss the date.
Did you know you can actually download the School Phone APP to stay connected to the sporting events, concerts, dinners, and events?
You can even follow them on Twitter at EMKnightsSchool
There is a wealth of information on the new Elmwood-Murdock website. It is updated on a daily basis by various teachers and department heads.

Here are just a few of the new books recently granted to the Elmwood Public Library. We hope you find something that will tempt you!
“Waylon! One Awesome Thing” by Sara Pennypacker
Waylon has lots of ideas for making life more awesome through science, but it’s impossible for him to concentrate when Mr. Brody is dividing the fourth-grade boys into two groups. Waylon is scared of the new kid, Baxter Boylen and his older sister has started wearing all black and asking, “What’s the point?” all the time. With so many changes at home, will Waylon find a new normal?
“Sea Rex” by Molly Idle
What could that be down in the sea? Is it a fish? A snail? A mermaid’s tale? Nope. It’s a SEA REX!
“Calling All Minds” by Temple Grandin
Roll up your sleeves! Put on your thinking caps! Let your imagination run wild!
This book looks at the science behind inventions and the steps inventors take to create things by tinkering. Through trial and error, they find success! Also included are mini-histories of the inventors and their patents that help tell the story of innovation.
Be sure to check them out!

Yoga in the Park
Saturday mornings 8 am - 9 am
Cost is $5/person
Join us for Yoga in the Park at the Elmwood Park on Saturday mornings, brought to you by Dyan Lynn Bacon, from Murdock and the owner of The Zen Room. It keeps growing each week and there is even discussion of adding another day based on the increased response.
We will count those that mark the event as “going” (click here) as registered. The final count will be checked 24 hours prior to the event. If there are fewer than 4 people marked as going, the event will be canceled for that Saturday morning.
If the events continue to be successful, we will plan to do Yoga in the Park into the Fall and possibly, pending a location, into Winter.
Bring a friend, a yoga mat (or towel) and a water bottle and come to relax during an hour of yoga!
**This is an all-level event, beginners are not only welcome - they are ENCOURAGED!! See you on the mat!!
