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!
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 25 students in our classroom. It could change by Tuesday.
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.

M-Step is here for fourth graders. M-Step is the new name for the MEAP test. Fourth graders will take the ELA portion of the test on April 28 and April 29. The test will take most of the day from what I understand. Then the students will resume the test on May 4, 5, and 6.
Mark your calendar. We will be going to Ann Arbor Hands-on Science Museum June 4. More information to come.
Leo’s Coney Island - Leo’s has a VIP Rewards and Fundraising Card. It is like a loyalty card (looks like a gift card). Every time you eat at Leo’s on Miller Road, they donate 20% of your bill to Elms Elementary.
Keri Goupil has the cards. Parents, please ask your child’s teacher if you’d like one.
Field Day at Elms
Third, fourth and fifth grade field day will be June 9. More information will 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.
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.
Three Can Thursday – Three Can Thursday will officially start this week. This helps raise money for PTA.
The next PTA meeting will be Monday, October 13th at 4:00 pm. Hope to see you there!
There will be free childcare and activity/ craft provided.
Keep sending in those Box Tops and Labels for Education. Classroom contests will be starting up soon and every Box Top and Label count!
Don’t forget to link your Kroger Card to Elms Road Elementary. This helps raise money for PTA.
Every Friday we have a popcorn sale for twenty-five cents a bag. The proceeds go to a different classroom to spend on supplies.
