The spelling bee was very exciting!  Adrian made it to 2nd place. Our 5 finalists did an amazing job.  We are so proud of each and everyone of them.  They represented Elms in the best possible way.

Congratulations to our January Bucket Fillers!  Thank you for sharing a smile, a word of kindness, and just overall making Elms a wonderful place!  This month bucket fillers had snack with Mr. Burgos, and special guest, Dr. Genco, Superintendent of Schools!  Thanks for stopping by Dr. Genco!
 Congratulations to: Adrian, Daygen, Frank, Isabella, Johnathan, Lauren, Londyn, Maggie, Meredith, Noah, Steven and Vincent!

Congratulation to Dr. Lisa Lane and Mrs. Donna Donner - winners of the Ocean First Model Classroom Grant!

To the Elms Community -

Thanks to all of you for continuing to work with us in all of our endeavors.  Building Safety and School Security is always something we take seriously.  Jackson School District Policy dictates that PHOTO ID be presented at the front reception area of each of our buildings each and every time you enter.  When you plan on visiting the Elms Elementary School, either to pick up your child or attend an event, please be sure to have PHOTO ID available including the make and model of your motor vehicle.  This is district policy and must be strictly enforced.  Please inform friends, neighbors or relatives who may be visiting and/or picking up your child(ren) that they will need to produce PHOTO ID at main reception before being allowed to enter or pick up a child.  Also please note that parking on the bus ramp is not permitted at any time that school is in full session.  Please use the main parking lot and the visitor spaces during the school day when visiting our school.

We appreciate your cooperation in this regard as this is for the safety and security of all of our learners, and for everyone in the building.
