Welcome to Elmer Elementary School
                   Where P.R.I.D.E is on our side!                       Patience - Respect - Integrity - Diligence - Empathy
 
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 Spring:  Awesome April . . .

Spring Conferences will take place on April 12th and April 13th.  These will be ½ Days for students.  Since only two days are designated for Spring Conferences, it is not possible to schedule a conference for every student.  Teachers will schedule conferences where they feel it is necessary.  Please be on the lookout for information coming home soon.  

Come join us for a night of family fun and learning through the wonderful works of Kevin Henkes books on April 27th from 6 pm to 8 pm. The titles you will visit at different activity stations are: Owen, Chester’s Way, A Weekend with Wendell, Old Bear, Wemberly Worried, and Sheila Rae, The Brave.  See you there!

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.      

Things to Do in the Spring with your family:

#1 Create a vegetable garden.

#2 Play an outside game: catch, ball toss, tag, etc. 

#3 Take a bike ride as a family.

#4 Plan a picnic at a local park.

#5 Take a nice walk as a family.

Whatever you do during this Spring, enjoy time with your family!
