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.

From the Principal

Dear Elms Parents & Students,

Come see our Daffodils! Spring has finally arrived and you can tell when you look at the cheery daffodils across the front of Elms.

April is Autism Awareness Month: "Think of it: a disability is usually defined in terms of what is missing...But autism...is as much about what is abundant as what is missing, an over-expression of the very traits that make our species unique" - Paul Collins, Not Even Wrong: Adventures in Autism

Thank you to the Elms Community for showing your support for Autism Awareness month.  The PreSchool Staff has been working hard to educate all of us about the different aspects of autism and pointing out famous authors, scientists and actors who are on the Autism Spectrum.  Thank you to all of our PreSchool staff, your hardwork and dedication to your students and to Autism education has not gone unnoticed.
