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.  

On Friday, May 12th we had our 2nd Grade Students read during our Author Spotlight Assembly for our 1st and 2nd Grade Classes. The following students had an opportunity to read: Mrs. Monti class: Natalie Scarginello and Jack Benfer; Mrs. Lewbart’s class:  Makayla Aviles and Zoe Tyler; Mrs. Lazzati’s Class: Danica Hack and Tyr Brattlie; Mrs. Ricci’s Class:  Helen Lillia and William Johnson; Mrs. Fanz’s Class: Sophia Quackenbush and Gabriel McFeeley.  A big Thank You to our 2nd Grade readers!

Dates to Keep in Mind:

We will celebrate School Spirit Day on Friday, June 2nd  show your Elmer Pride by wearing your blue and white.

Our 1st Grade Donuts with Dad program will take place on Thursday, June 1st from 9 am to 10 am.  We wish all of our dads a Happy Father’s Day!

Our Field Day events will take place on June 7th (Rain or Shine).  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.

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 12th, 13th, and 14th will be half days for our students, which will be a 12:15 dismissal (Reminder: Lunches are Served on ½ Days).  June 14 th 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!
