I am so excited to start at Elro this Fall. They have great Sports teams and Music Programs and can't wait to try out for Basketball, Tennis and Band. The guidance counselor at this school is really nice.

Leadership is key and Mr. Saliani is an outstanding leader. He has a good working knowledge of teaching and diplomacy - he has been known to prepare some of the lunchroom specials. The school environment reflects the involvement and interest of all the staff and students together.
