Spirit Day—Wednesday, April 11th     



This month we are celebrating a walk of all species and our spirit day will be all about the Earth.  The kids could dress up in nature colors, like an animal, a plant, or one the 4 Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle, or rot). Please make sure that your child isn’t wearing something that will distract them throughout the day.

If your child can’t come up with an idea just have them wear their Elmira Spirit Wear.

* The 4th grade class is popping the popcorn, so please let your child’s teacher know if you can help from 7:30-8:30am.


The NED Show visited Elmira Elementary this morning.



The NED message is to:
N= Never give up
E= Encourage others
D= Do yo
ur best

Students will be able to earn NED tickets over the next 2 weeks and can enter them in a drawing to win a yo-yo! Information will also be coming home if you would like to purchase one from the office in the mornings. Yo-yos will be for sale through Friday morning.


Kindergarten Information Night for 2018-2019

Thursday, March 15th, 2018 6:00-7:30 pm

Elmira Elementary is excited to offer an evening of information for our incoming Kindergarten families.

For many children, Kindergarten is the beginning of their education and their first steps outside the familiarity of home. For many parents, it’s the start of a relationship with their public school system.

In Kindergarten, students develop a love for learning. They begin to feel comfortable in a new environment as they advance their basic skills such as working with others, listening, and sharing.  Throughout the year, students will expand their academic skills in reading, writing, and math.

Elmira Elementary strives to give parents and students the right start in education by caring for and understanding each child’s needs and each parent’s concerns. We encourage parents to contact us whenever they have questions or concerns.


6:00-6:30 p.m. — School Tour
