ELM MIDDLE SCHOOL’S WEEKLY NEWSLETTER
January 7, 2022
Greetings Elm Families,Welcome back! We hope everyone had a wonderful break! We've had an exciting first week back here at Elm. We've spent the week reviewing expectations, routines and all of our procedures. And we are so proud of our students as they have transitioned back to learning.
It's hard to believe that only 6 weeks remain in our Trimester! Now is a great time to check in with your student to make sure they are on track to finish the Trimester strong. Also, 8th grade parents, please check your email as 8th grade student enrolled in high school courses report cards were emailed out today.
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! #TeamElmStrongMost Sincerely,
Ms. Ashley Groeneveld

8th Grade Dance
Dear 8th grade families,
As 2021 comes to an end, we can’t help but to think of new beginnings and what lies ahead for us in the new year. The Elm Middle School PAT is starting the new year by planning and organizing the 2022 8th Grade Dinner Dance. The dance will be held in May of 2022.
As you know, planning an event such as this, takes plenty of time and preparation. With the current health and safety measures and the guidelines given to is from EPCUSD 401, this event will be an outdoor tented event. The Elm Middle School PAT will secure a large heated tent, tables, chairs, dinner, dessert, music entertainment and decorations for the event. This event will cost $45.00 per student and will be broken up into 2 payments due at the beginning and the end of January. These fees are NON REFUNDABLE. The payment schedule and timeline are not subject to change or exceptions. More information on payment details will come early in the new year.
