Dear Parents/Guardians:


Welcome 2021!  The Elmer Elementary School staff and I wish you and your families a happy, healthy New Year.

The children at Elmer have been busy with many seasonal and holiday activities.  Thank you for your help with our Coins from the Heart program.  Your donations will help many area families this holiday season.  Excitement of the season is definitely in the air here at Elmer Elementary School.

Give Someone A Reason To Smile: Just bringing in the New Year is a reason to smile.  I would like to extend a Happy and Healthy New Year to your family from our Elmer Family.

Just a few reminders:  Please remember to contact our office if there are any changes to home phone numbers, work numbers, etc.  It’s important that we have the latest updated information.  Your cooperation is appreciated. 

Dates to Keep in Mind:

Winter Recess: December 24th through January 3rd.  School Reopens on Monday, January 4th (All Virtual Instruction).  The District returns to in-person instruction on January 19th.  Once we return to in-person instruction, we will continue with Virtual Wednesdays.

Our schools will be closed on Monday, January 18th in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday.

The midpoint of the 2nd Trimester is February 1st.  Please be on the lookout for progress reports to follow.

We will celebrate School Spirit Days on the first Friday of each month; show your Elmer Pride by wearing your blue and white.

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.     

Emergency Call System:  The Emergency Call System is in place in case of an Emergency School Closing.  You should have received phone calls or emails from our district by now.  If you haven’t, please inform us of any changes that need to be made, especially phone numbers.  Also, please listen to the local radio stations or TV channels for information on our school closings or check our website, www.pittsgrove.net.
