Dear Parents/Guardians:

Here’s to a great 2018 and ringing in the New Year 2019!  The Elmer Elementary School staff and I wish you and your families a happy, healthy New Year.

The children at Elmer have been busy with many seasonal and holiday activities.  Thank you for your help with our Coins from the Heart program and Canned Food Drive.  Your donations will help many area families this holiday season.  Excitement of the season is definitely in the air here at Elmer Elementary School.

Just a few reminders:  Please remember to contact our office if there are any changes to home phone numbers, work numbers, etc.  It’s important that we have the latest updated information.  Your cooperation is appreciated. 

Stop Bullying Link on Webpage: Please feel free to visit our Stop Bullying link on our Pittsgrove Webpages if you wish to report a bullying incident anonymously.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office.

Dates to Keep in Mind:

Winter Recess: December 24th through January 1st .  School Reopens on Wednesday, January 2nd.

Our schools will be closed on Monday, January 21st  in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday.

Please be advised that school will be closed for students on Thursday, January 31st  for a teacher In-Service Day.
