Tonawanda's Summer Reading Program! We have created a school-wide plan to encourage families to set goals and make time for reading over the summer months. Students who complete the summer reading and goal setting will be acknowledged in the fall 2021. Please find all the information on this informational flyer!


RAZ Kids will be available through the entire summer, too!  RAZ Kids is a familiar software program for our primary students to use over the summer.

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 ElmbrookRead more for additional information.
