POSTMASTER NANCY GOSCH AND THE STAFF OF THE LOCAL POST OFFICE PETITIONED THE UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE FOR A SPECIAL ONE-DAY CANCELLATION STAMP IN HONOR OF ELWOOOD’S 25TH BIRTHDAY. THE POST OFFICE STAFF CAME TO OUR SCHOOL AND THREW A BIRTHDAY BASH FOR ALL THE STUDENTS IN THE BUILDING. THEY BROUGHT CAKE AND PUNCH FOR 325 CHILDREN, AND ALSO GAVE EACH CHILD A SPECIAL POST CARD OF ELWOOD AND A STAMP (DONATED BY OUR PARENT’S CLUB) ON WHICH TO PUT THE ELWOOD CANCELLATION. EVERY CHILD’S STAMP WAS CANCELLED THAT AFTERNOON AT THE PARTY AND THEN THE ARTIST THAT DID THE CANCELLATION, JOHN GRAGERT, TOOK THE TIME TO PERSONALLY SIGN EACH ONE. IT WAS A VERY SPECIAL DAY THAT ELWOOD WILL ALWAYS CHERISH.
 
THERE IS NOTHING THAT KINDLES THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS, LIKE A TREE.
ELWOOD TOOK A TRIP TO VISIT OLD FRIENDS IN BROOKLYN AT PS 279. KNOWING HE WOULD BE AWAY FROM HIS FRIENDS THIS HOLIDAY, ANA PLAZA, ONE OF THE 4TH GRADE TEACHERS, THOUGHT IT ONLY FITTING THAT ELWOOD SHOULD SEE THE CHRISTMAS TREE AT ROCKEFELLER PLAZA. ELWOOD WAS EXTREMELY GRATEFUL, HE DIDN’T HAVE TO PUT THE STAR ON TOP.
