Dear Parents/Guardians:

Here’s to a great 2018!  The Elmer School Staff and I wish you and your families a happy, healthy New Year!

The children at Elmer will be busy with many seasonal and holiday activities.  Thank you for your help with our Coins from the Heart program.  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:  We ask that students arrive on time to school.  Our instructional program starts the moment students enter the building.  When a child is late they miss valuable instructional time.  We realize that an occasional lateness may occur however habitual lateness causes the student undo disadvantage to the instructional day.  Our school day begins at 9:10 AM.  Thanks in advance for your continued support and cooperation. 

Dates to Keep in Mind:

Please be advised that there is a 1:15 dismissal for students on the following days: Wednesday, December 12th through Friday, December 14th for Parent Teacher Conferences & Friday, December 7th for teachers Professional Development Day.

Winter Recess:  We will have an 1:15 dismissal on Friday, December 21st.  School will be closed from December 22nd through January 1st.  School will re-open on Wednesday, January 2nd

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

We will celebrate School Spirit Days on the first Friday of each month; show your Elmer Pride by wearing your blue and white.

Directed Play: The children will go outside everyday for directed play as the weather permits.  Please dress children appropriately for any kind of weather condition, as well as for the use of our playground equipment.  Our goal is to keep students safe and comfortable during this important time in their school day.
