Fabulous February!

We have many activities and things to celebrate for the month of February.  Please post our calendar in a location that it can be viewed to keep up to date with our events, meetings, and school closure dates.  As always, we look forward to seeing you during the month of February.

Dates and Events to Keep in Mind

Please be on the lookout for Progress Reports on Wednesday, February 6th.  The information in our Progress Reports are a valuable tool to track your child’s progress midway through the Second Trimester.

100th Day of School will be celebrated on February 13th for our Kindergarten students, since the 100th day falls on Valentine’s Day.  1st Grade will celebrate the 100th day of school on Feb. 14th.  Grade level celebrations will take place on these dates, so please check with your child’s classroom teacher for any classroom activity needs.  It will be a great day for everyone. 

Our schools WILL be CLOSED on FRIDAY, February 15th and MONDAY, February 18th in honor of both Presidents; George Washington & Abraham Lincoln.   Please mark your calendars! 

Save the Date:  Elmer School’s Family Fun Night will take place on February 27th.  This year’s theme is Dr. Seuss.  More information will be forthcoming. “The more you read the more things you know. The more that you learn the more places you’ll go.”  - Dr. Seuss

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

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

DARE Program:  Our Salem County Sheriff's Department will be conducting DARE lessons in our Kindergarten classrooms.  Please see the link to topics that will be shared with your children.
