Community Partners

Community Partners

Here at Huff Elementary School we have built strong ties with community agencies. Having these supportive partnerships allows our students and our families to build strong ties with the wider Elgin community and gain opportunities they may not otherwise have been able to. If you are interested in partnering with, please call our school office at (847) 888-5285.
