Beyond the Classroom

2015 Elms Gardening Club
Spring is right around the corner and the Elms Gardening Club can’t wait to get outside!  Our after school Gardening Club is designed to educate students in grades 1-5 about basic gardening skills while fostering a love for nature.  Participating students will develop a sense of pride as they see all of their hard work grow into a beautiful landscape.

This year, the Gardening Club will convene right after school on Wednesdays at 3:15 PM and students must be picked up by 4:00 PM. Our first meeting will be on April 15th in Ms. Masur’s Room # 127.  At this meeting, we will give your child a schedule of future meetings. All scheduled meetings will be held rain or shine on Wednesdays.  

If your child would like to be a part of the Gardening Club, please email us at Elmsgardeningclub@gmail.com by March 25th.  Please include the name of your child in the subject line with your last name first. (Ex. Last Name, First Name) If you have multiple children, please include your last name, followed by the children’s first names. (Ex.: Agoston, Alyssa, John, Cindy, Louise) Please send only one email per family. You will receive a confirmation email.  If you do not receive  this email, please contact Ms. Parella.   If you have any other questions, please contact Ms. Agoston.

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.
