There are many exciting things happening at Greenwood Elementary School:
Mr. John Boyer had to eat a bug (or THREE) at April’s Spirit Assembly after his class earned the most money for books in the Scholastic Book Fair. During the book fair, students were able to donate their extra change to help students who do not have access to books. The teacher with the most money vowed to eat a bug. After earning almost $200, Mr. Boyer kept true to his pledge and dined on a few creepy crawlers!
As a result of schools being closed because of inclement weather on February 9 and March 14, 2017, the last student day for the 2016-2017 school year will now be Monday, June 12, 2017. Any additional inclement weather days make-up days will be added to the end of the calendar.

February was off to a fantastic start at Greenwood Elementary School with our Spirit Assembly! We celebrated our Box Top success, rallied for the Greenwood vs. New Garden basketball game, and of course, had to see if the Greenwood Groundhog saw his shadow. He did and it looks like we’re in for six more weeks of winter!
