We're gearing up for a Great October.  Here are some Highlights . . .

Back to School Night:  On Tuesday September 27, 2016, Elmer Elementary School held its annual Back to School Night.  Schools are the hub of our communities and this event provided time for parents to visit our school, meet your child’s teacher and learn a little bit more about the many wonderful programs, activities, and learning experiences planned for your child this school year.  We thank you for attending and joining us in an educational partnership!

Week of Respect:  October 3rd through 7th Respect will be our focus at Elmer, we will have a different morning announcement dealing/defining what ‘Respect’ means. Please note the following Spirit Days for Respect:  Monday; ‘Dress in Your Best’Tuesday; ‘Team up to Stop Bullying’- students can wear their favorite team shirtsWednesday; ‘Put a Lid on Bullying’– students can wear their favorite baseball cap (Please, no silly hats)/ Thursday; “Show Respect Inside and Out – wear your favorite T-Shirt inside/out.

Fire Safety and Prevention:   We will also have a presentation on the week of October 13th by one of our staff member’s husbands who is a volunteer Fire Fighter; Mr. Ricci.  Please remember to change your batteries in your smoke detectors and discuss a fire exit plan with your family!

Halloween Safety Tips:  Plan out route in advance/ Wear well-fitting shoes/ Avoid costumes that drag on the ground/ Children masks should allow for full visibility and breathing/Trick or treaters should be accompanied by an adult/ Candy should not be eaten unless checked by an adult/ Establish a time limit.  These are just a sample of helpful safety tips.  Remember safety first and have fun!
