Each year, the Wisconsin Council of Administrators of Special Services (WCASS) Region accepts nominations for awards for outstanding people in the field of Student Services. On Friday, April 29, the WCASS Board and staff across Elmbrook celebrated this year’s award recipients: Kristin Olson, Administrator of the Year Award (Principal, Tonawanda Elementary); Murphy Lance, Related Services Award (Occupational Therapist, Burleigh Elementary); Kaleigh Smith, Personal Achievement Award (Student, Project STRIVE); Syn Acala, Personal Achievement Award (Student, Brookfield Central).
Tonawanda Elementary School placed 2nd in the 2021-2022 WEMTA State Battle of the Books competition! The team took the silver in the elementary division which includes students from across the state in grades 4 through 6 with an average of 230 schools competing each year.
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released school report cards this week, naming Tonawanda Elementary as a school that "Significantly Exceeds Expectations" with a composite score of 84.

Our All District Read officially kicks off on Monday, February 1st!
For this entire school year we have done everything possible to keep our students and staff safe while prioritizing in-person learning. Of all the safety and risk mitigation measures and efforts implemented, none has been more impactful than masking. The science and the data support this, and we stand behind it. We will continue to follow the science and rely on our Medical Advisory Board to help guide policies and procedures. To be clear, regardless of the political action in Madison, masks will be required in all schools for anyone entering a facility in the School District of Elmbrook.

Last evening (January 12th), the School District of Elmbrook's Board of Education approved adding 4-Year-Old Kindergarten (4K) for the 2021-2022 school year by a vote of 5-2. The 4K offering will be tuition-free and hosted at each District elementary school. Prior to the approval, Elmbrook was one of only five Districts across the state to not offer this half-day, educational program to our community.
