Vision Statement

Pittsgrove Township Elementary Schools, Norma School, Elmer School and Olivet School, are committed to creating an environment where all students reach their highest level of academic, emotional and social achievement.  All members of the school community will strive to create a safe environment where students demonstrate P.R.I.D.E., and will be able to develop into productive global citizens. 

Welcome Summer: Joyous June

Our Field Day events will take place on June 8th.  Field Day will be a school-wide event for 1st and 2nd Grade.  Please keep an eye on the weather . . . children would be outside for a majority of the day.  I’d recommend all children wear sunscreen, eat a well-balanced breakfast, and drink plenty of water prior to coming to school.  It will be a great event for all. 

June 14th, 15th, and 16th will be half days for our students, which will be a 12:15 dismissal (Reminder: Lunches are Served on ½ Days).  June 16th will be the last day of school.  

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.      

Summer Sizzle:

 Here are some helpful educational tips to keep learning fun during the summer months!

1) Keep writing skills fresh, have your child take a notebook and decorate the cover.  During family outings or trips, have them write down three things that happened each day.  They can draw a picture with each entry. They can then share their work with you.

2) To keep math skills up, when you're making a purchase, they can estimate the cost.  They can also count change after you have made the purchase. 

3) Set aside 20 minutes of reading time each day.  Put a beach blanket on the floor and make the area where the read extra special.

4) If you're taking a family vacation, grab a map and plot the trip as a family.  Plan where you'll make stops, estimate times.  Research the history of the place you will be visiting.

 Remember: Fun is in the eye of the beholder . . . Enjoy your summer!
