Principal Message Summer 2018

June 2018

 Dear Elms Families,

 How fast the year has gone!  It was wonderful spending time with you and your students this year.  We hope you have an amazing summer. 

 The Elms School is open during the summer Monday-Thursday 8:00am-3:00pm.  If you are looking for your child’s coat or lunch box, come check the lost and found!  We have a lot of missing items that were not claimed at the end of the year. 


 We would like to remind everyone that it is important to read and practice math facts over the summer.  The summer reading lists and games can be found on the e-backpack.  The links for Tumblebooks and Pearson Math Games will remain on our site all summer for easy access.


 Over the summer, Ms. Conley has set up 4 afternoons when the school library will be open to parents and students.  Every student that attends a library night will be awarded a raffle ticket EACH night that they come. On August 13th, the last library night, winners will be selected to receive a Barnes & Noble Gift Card, or Elms merchandise.

 Thursday July 12, 2-6pm.  Join us at 3pm for a presentation from the Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge. Reptiles will be on display for the students to observe and learn about.

 Tuesday July 24, 2-6pm.  A librarian from the Ocean County Public Library will be here to help families sign up for an Ocean County Library Card.  Ice pop treat will be offered in the garden.

 Wednesday August 1, 2-6pm.  A special ice cream treat will be offered in the garden.

 Monday August 13, 2-6pm. Come out and try to send Mr. Burgos or Mr. Levinson into the Dunk Tank!  $1 will get you 1 chance, $2 will get you 3.

 For more information, see Ms. Conley’s website at


 Thank you for a great year!  We look forward to working with you next year!
