Welcome Back to School
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! We extend a warm welcome to all new and returning students, their families and to our dedicated staff. A new school year brings with it renewed energy, a sense of optimism and excitement.
Elms Elementary Back-to-School Nights will be held on the following nights at 7:00pm.
- Tuesday, September 13th- Pre-K
- Wednesday, September 14th – Kindergarten, First & Second
- Thursday, September 15th– Third, Fourth & Fifth
There you will have an opportunity to hear about some of our programs and begin forging that all-important relationship with the classroom teacher, as well as learn about the grade level curriculum, specialists, classroom technology, and other educational activities. We hope that you will visit the Elms School Website (https://www.jacksonsd.org/Elms) often for the latest in news and information.
Whether you are new to Elms Elementary School or a returning family, we encourage you to become an active participant in your child’s education and become familiar with the myriad of activities our school offers. There are multiple opportunities throughout the year with many jobs of all sizes and shapes that are essential to the success of our school. If you’re not sure how to become involved, please ask—we’d love to have you! The Elms PTN is always looking for parent participation! I encourage all of our community to join our very active PTN. Your membership dues go to support our many cultural arts programs and assemblies for ALL students in our school. You might want to help out by volunteering for an event or committee. PTN meetings are held each month and are open to all. The first meeting of the year is Wednesday, September 28th @ 9:30 AM in the IMC. Please join us as the home school partnership is vital to the success of all our learners.
We have so much to be proud of at Elms School and, working together, we will continue to create and foster an inclusive, dynamic and caring school community.
We look forward to a successful school year and greeting you at Back to School Night!

Lisa Lane Ed.D., Assistant Principal
