Dear Elliott Family,

It is with bittersweet emotions that I announce my upcoming retirement. My last day with Wayne-Westland Community Schools will be June 30, 2023. This decision did not come easily! I have been proud to call Wayne-Westland Schools home, first as a student from 1971-1984, and since October 1992 as an educator.

It has been an amazing career marked by so many wonderful memories and experiences, including my time as principal here at Elliott Elementary, home of the best elementary children ever! For the past ten years, it has been an absolute pleasure to work alongside our hardworking and dedicated teachers and staff, who value education and put our students’ needs first. I want to extend my appreciation to you for your continued support of our school. You are instrumental in creating a rich, full learning experience for our children.

Once again, it has been a true pleasure and honor to be part of the Elliott family!

Educationally yours,

Andrea Griffin

Hello Elliott Family,

This week we celebrate our teachers, including our Elliott classroom teachers, specials teachers, special education teachers, school social workers, occupational therapist, and school psychologist. I am continuously impressed with the amount of time and energy the staff at Elliott puts into making sure all our students are successful! They are a talented group of teachers who demonstrate daily that they want nothing but the best for our students and families. I know that nothing is more special to them than words of appreciation. Please take a few minutes to send a note via a handwritten card, email, or Dojo to thank them for everything they do each and every day that makes Elliott such a great place for our students to learn and grow!

Hello Elliott Family,

Happy Spring! I want to thank Mr. Layne for filling in for me during the two weeks I was out! It was great to be back with my Elliott Family this past week. Lots of great things took place during my absence. Our Someone Special Dance was well attended and a huge success. Our Kindergarten Kickstart was also well attended and we look forward to the new Eagles who will be joining Elliott in the fall! March is Reading Month got off to a strong start. Our theme this year is "We are Super Readers!" John Glenn High School Athletes came and read to our classes and answered questions students had for them. We will continue to have "celebrity readers" visit our classrooms this month and in upcoming months. Please see the "We are Super Readers" calendar for more information regarding this month's activities.

This upcoming week is going to be busy and full of learning fun! This week our College and Career Readiness Department will be celebrating March Madness. This week is meant to ignite the conversation around various career pathways and there will be a theme for each day. We will have our Elliott Super Family Game Night this Wednesday evening. (See below.) Friday the Story Ladies will be again reading to every classroom!
