Welcome Spring: Hooray for May

Mother’s Day:  In the United States, Mother's Day started nearly 150 years ago, when Anna Jarvis, an Appalachian homemaker, organized a day to raise awareness of poor health conditions in her community, a cause she believed would be best advocated by mothers. She called it "Mother's Work Day."  Since then, many traditions have evolved.  Mark your calendars:  Mother’s Day is celebrated the second Sunday of May.  Second Grade will have its annual Mother’s Day Tea on May 6th.

Just a reminder there is a PTO Meeting on May 10th beginning at 6:30 PM.  The meeting will be held at Olivet School, all are welcome to attend.

PTO sponsored Book Fair: May 10th through May 12th.  Family Night, Wednesday May 11th from 6-8 pm. Mark your calendars!

May 27th will be wear red, white, and blue day in anticipation of Memorial Day weekend.  Children may come to school wearing patriotic themed clothing to show their spirit.

School will closed on Monday, May 30th in observance of Memorial Day.  

A Tribute to Elmer Elementary Teaching Staff and School Nurse:

What a Teacher! School Nurse 
My teacher is a person, Putting on band Aides
Who guides us all. stopping a hurting feeling.
My teacher is a person, Holding on to ice packs.
Who teaches us all. Giving out change of clothes
My teacher is a person, Tirelessly healing
Who hears me when I call. all day long.
My teacher is a person, Just to make sure
Who holds me when I fall. that nothing goes wrong.
My teacher is a person, Whom I trust in all. Our children are safer,
My teacher is a person, because of you.
Who, to me, is the greatest teacher of all! Thank you Mrs. Ewing . . . For all you do!
