Message from the Principal


Dear Elkin Students and Parents,


I am so excited to begin my second year as the principal of Elkin Elementary School!  I welcome my co-principal, Ximena Carreno this year.  We are looking forward to working with all of you. 


I spent the summer reflecting on the growth that Elkin has shown in previous years and creating plans for continued growth for the 2016-17 school year.  This year we will be working closely together in order to provide a quality education to each and every Elkin student in an environment that is safe, beautiful and nurturing in order to set a strong foundation for your child’s future. 


By working together, your child will be very successful.  I ask that you maintain an open line of communication with your child’s teacher.  The Elkin teachers will be provided with on-going professional development to assist them in planning and delivering engaging and rigorous lessons to your child. 


Your child will receive homework every night from Monday through Thursday.  We ask that you review your child’s homework each night and sign off verifying that you reviewed it.  With your help and encouragement of your children and your support to the Elkin mission, we are going to have a FANTASTIC school year!


Please be sure to visit our website frequently as we will have updated information and highlighting many of Elkin’s success stories.



Dr. Evelyn Nunez
