Hi Elevate Families!

I hope that you are all healthy and are finding creative ways during this unique season to enjoy quality time together, create special memories, and find meaningful learning opportunities.  I know that daily we are gaining new information in the news about COVID-19 and might find ourselves overwhelmed with questions and feelings of anxiety. At Elevate, we are working to communicate with you and desire to support and encourage you.  Below, you can find resources for parents. I will work to update it regularly. 

Please feel free to email me with any questions/concerns that you may have at

Working Together-
