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,

I hope this message finds you enjoying your children and the lazy, hazy days of summer. 



As we approach the end of August, the administration staff of the Elms Elementary School has been working diligently to prepare for the 2014-2015 school year.  Schedules are being created, class lists are being tweaked, assemblies and trips are being coordinated, and rooms and halls are being scrubbed and shined.  It has been a busy and productive summer!



We look forward to the students return on Wednesday, September 3!  We are ready to begin a fun, exciting, educational year with all of our students.



Class assignments will be available starting Monday, August 25 via the Parent Portal.  If you have trouble accessing the information, you need to contact Portal Support. The instructions for what to do are located right on the Portal Login page.

Bus passes will also be available via Portal on Wednesday, August 27.  If you have trouble printing or accessing the bus pass, you can get a bus pass printed at the Administration building on Friday, August 29, or Tuesday, September 2 from 8a.m. to 4p.m.



Summer Reading Logs and Projects will be due the first week we return.  Students may turn in completed assignments to their teacher.  All students completing a reading log will receive a special treat, and will be entered into the PTN raffle for prizes such as Barnes & Noble Gift Cards (our grand prize from last year was a color nook!).  Reading is its own reward but hard work deserves to be celebrated!


We look forward to a fantastic year!  Please know that if you have any questions, the office is always available.

Sincerely,

Michael Burgos  &  Dr. Lisa Lane
Principal                     Asst. Principal
