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.


Sincerely,
Michael Burgos 
Principal

From the Principal

Dear Elms Parents & Students,

Winter Wonderland:

The Elms PTN put on their annual Winter Wonderland Festival on Saturday, December 6th in the Elms cafeteria.  The Winter Wonderland Festival brought in students and parents from all around the community.  The PTN sold a variety of items that will no doubt make someone’s holiday a special one.  Some of the popular items sold at the Festival ranged from cookware to sports gear.    Students from Jackson Memorial High School also volunteered for the event.  Members of the Future Business Leaders of America and the Art Honor Society arrived early to help set up the tables and stayed late to help clean up.  Dylan Miller, a sophomore at JMHS and a member of FBLA, provided additional holiday spirit much to the joy of the children in attendance. 

Thank you to Judith Adler, Carrie Kearns, Johanna Milone, & Sherri Kimmell for all of your hard work putting together not only the Winter Wonderland Shops, but the whole Saturday event as well.  What a tremendous feat!  Thank you to all of our Parent volunteers, none of this can work without you!

Merry Mural Winners:
