Elms Halloween parties are two different times.. Our class party will be October 31 at 10:45. The parade will be a 10:30. Parents are welcome to come.
Our Special Schedule
Our special schedule is a little bit complicating. Instead of a schedule being on one particular day, it rotates every three days. Also every sixth day, we have an extra special at the end of the day. Until November, that extra special is with Mr. Dutcher in the gym and the children will be released from there.
This makes it a little difficult to know when to bring tennis shoes for gym so each week I will try to post our gym schedule here.
Our book fair is Thursday. Students who wish to purchase books at school may bring money then.
Elms Family Fun Night – Spaghetti Dinner, AR/Moby Max & Book Fair – Our first Family Fun Night will be Thursday, September 18thfrom 5:00 – 7:00. Italia Gardens will be catering and we’ll be opening our library and computer lab for students to take AR Test and use Moby Max. The Book Fair will also be taking place during this time.
Scholastic Book Fair Wednesday Sept. 17 Children may purchase books at the book fair.
Homecoming Parade – The Swartz Creek Homecoming Parade is on Friday, September 26th. Line up for the parade is around 4:15. Each year we have a great showing of Elms Road staff and students walking in the parade.

Snacks and Water Bottle
Children are allowed to eat snacks in the classroom. It should be a healthy snack. I also allow the children to have water bottles on their desk. The bottles need to have a top on them and should be filled with water only.
Children may bring in birthday treats. It should be something that is quick and easy. For example, it could be some sort of candy, cookies, or cupcakes. It is also a good idea to send napkins. It is best to drop it off in the morning, so I can figure out the best time to serve it. Today we have 27 students in our classroom. It could change by Tuesday.
Every Friday we have a popcorn sale for twenty-five cents a bag. The proceeds go to a different classroom to spend on supplies.

Cell Phone Policy
Cell Phone Policy – Please remind your child that if you require them to bring a cell phone to school, it must remain in their backpack and turned off during school time. We've had several incidents with students carrying cell phones or leaving them on. Active cell phones during school hours cause distractions to learning and class time activities. If this rule is broken, our school policy is to confiscate the cell phone, turn it into the office and have the child’s parent come and pick up the phone. Thank you for your help with this matter!
