ELM MIDDLE SCHOOL’S WEEKLY NEWSLETTER
March 25, 2022
Greetings Elm Families,
Happy Spring Break!! Can you believe it? It's here! We hope everyone enjoys the much deserved break and is able to rest, relax and reset before we return to close out the 2021-2022 school year!
Over break we hope you're able to enjoy all of the things you love and spend time together! Whether you're traveling to a far away destination or staying close, we will see you when we return on Monday, April 4th.
Please take a few minutes and read through this week’s Courier! As always, should you need anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly. Stay safe! #TeamElmStrong

PAT and Elm Middle School are excited to announce the return of the COLOR EXTRAVAGANZA! Come celebrate the end of a great school year by having fun and getting messy. This event will take place on Thursday, May 12 from 3:30 to 4:45, outside in the Elm Field. Students in grades 5-8 will get to participate in multiple activity stations while getting doused in color powder, led by our Principal, Ms. Groeneveld!
A light snack will be provided after the event. Kits are available for purchase at $20.00 each and include a t-shirt, sunglasses, 5 packs of Color, an inspirational bracelet, a sticker, and temporary tattoo.
