Dear Parents/Guardians:

Summer is approaching!  The weather is warmer and we will be out on the playground everyday as the weather permits.  As always, please dress children appropriately for any kind of weather conditions.  

Dates to Keep in Mind:

We will celebrate School Spirit Day on Friday, June 7th  show your Elmer Pride by wearing your blue and white.

Our 1st Grade Donuts with Dad program will take place on Friday, June 7th from 10 am to 11 am.  We wish all of our dads a Happy Father’s Day!

Our Field Day events will take place on June 12th (Rain Date June 13th).  Field Day will be a school-wide event for Kindergarten and 1st Grade.  Please keep an eye on the weather . . . children would be outside for a majority of the day.  It is 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.

Flag Day - the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777 - was officially established by the Proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson on May 30th, 1916. While Flag Day was celebrated in various communities for years after Wilson's proclamation, it was not until August 3rd, 1949, that President Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14th of each year as National Flag Day

June 14th, 17th, and 18th will be half days for our students, which will be a 1:15 dismissal (Reminder: Lunches are Served on ½ Days).  June 18th will be the last day of school

As the school year begins to draw to a close, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support throughout this school year.  We will continue to make the end of the year as exciting as the beginning.  Best wishes for a great summer!
