Wednesday, September 14th… SPIRIT DAY!!! Elmira Eagle Day! Wear anything with Elmira, blue, or gold.
One goal for the Elmira Elementary staff is to strengthen the school community in a way that kids will enjoy showing school spirit.

The first Wednesday of each month will be designated “dress up day.” All of Elmira Elementary staff and students will be encouraged to participate with the monthly theme.

Please help your child participate. Please don’t feel the need to go out and purchase new items. Make sure that whatever your child chooses to wear is appropriate, comfortable, and won’t be a distraction in the classroom.

Each month, we will ask parent volunteers to come in and help with popping popcorn for every student. This month we are asking for parent volunteers from KINDERGARTEN, 4th, and 5th grade. Please let your child’s teacher know if you are able to help : )

Thank you so much!

THANK YOU to everyone for your patience with student drop-off this morning! I am so glad that so many of our families were able to bring their child to school for the first day.

Parents and families will use the NEW EES parking lot for dropping-off and picking up students. Please pull as far forward in the loop as possible prior to parking.  Please do not park in an area that will block traffic from entering or exiting.

Students waiting to be picked up will be in front of the gym.

As summer comes to a close and school begins next week, I would like to thank families for their patience while EES continues in the construction process. As many of you are aware, we will be transitioning into the new building over Winter Break. Until then, we will have to be both patient and flexible with everyone involved.
