Fabulous February!

Dates to Keep in Mind:

We will celebrate School Spirit Days on the first Friday of each month; show your Elmer Pride by wearing your blue and white.  Students are encouraged to support their favorite football teams on February 1st & 2nd, Team Colors will be counted as School Spirit Wear.

Please be on the lookout for Progress Reports on Tuesday, February 7th.  The information in our Progress Reports is a valuable tool to track your child’s progress midway through the Second Trimester.

100th Day of School will be celebrated on February 20th.  Grade level celebrations will take place, so please check with your child’s classroom teacher for any classroom activity needs.  It will be a great day for everyone. 

Valentine’s Day will be celebrated on February 14th.  Students are encouraged to come to school wearing Red and White.  Please check with your child’s classroom teacher for any classroom activity needs.

Our schools WILL be CLOSED on FRIDAY, February 16th and MONDAY, February 19th in honor of both Presidents; George Washington & Abraham Lincoln.   Please mark your calendars!  

Reminders:

Illness at Home or During the School Day:  Our teachers and school nurse keep close watch on all children.  If illness occurs, the school nurse will attempt to notify parents/guardians.  If your child has been hospitalized or is absent from school for any illness lasting more than five consecutive days, a note from your family physician is required before your child may return to school.  Parents should be notifying the school attendance office anytime a student is absent.

Students will be sent home for the following reasons:  having a temperature of 100 or above.  (They must be fever free without Tylenol or other medication for 24 hours before returning to school) having a severe cough or cold and having diarrhea and/or vomiting (should be over for 24 hours before returning).  Your help and cooperation is greatly appreciated!
