Elm Street Elementary

Report Card Newsletter, October 2014

Welcome to the Paperless Newsletter!

The Elm Street Newsletter is now paperless! That's right! We have gone digital in an effort to provide our families with a more interesting and inviting newsletter format, while also conserving paper so that it can be used for more important instructional activities. One of the most exciting opportunities with this newsletter is being able to directly share photos and video clips, which will give families a chance to learn more about the exciting work taking place within our school. We can still work to provide a print copy to any family who may not have access to the internet at home, but we are encouraging all families to take advantage of the convenience of this new electronic version. Please feel free to offer feedback as we pioneer this new format.

"We Are One Nation, We Are One Land"

Powerful lyrics! Maybe we're not the same race, maybe we don't have the same beliefs, or live in the same kind of place. Maybe we think we're too different? Maybe that's simply not true? I love to hear our students reach the crescendo of this song...

We are one nation.

Yes, we are one land.

Together in freedom, united we stand.


Oh, I Love America!

Fourth and Fifth Grade Chorus leads us in the singing of Oh, I Love America at the closing of our Patriot's Day Program on September 11, 2014.
