Parents and Guardians,
Elma Elementary will be holding kindergarten registration on Wednesday, April 17th from 9:00am to 12:00pm and 1:00pm to 3:30pm. It is very important that prospective students get enrolled so that we have an accurate student count to determine how many kindergarten teachers we will need next year. Registration will be held at the Superintendent’s office which is on the Elementary campus. All children who are five years old on or before August 31, 2013 are eligible to register for the 2013-2014 school year. Proof of your child’s immunizations and a birth certificate are required on the day of registration. Please contact the elementary school at (360) 482-2632 if you have any questions.
On Friday March 29th the Elma Elementary PTA will be hosting “basket bingo.” The event will be held in our multipurpose room from 6:00pm to 8:00pm and will feature a silent auction, bingo basket prizes made by our staff and students, and several prizes donated from our local businesses. Basket bingo has always proved to be a fun family night out. All the proceeds will go to support the many great things that our PTA does for our students and staff. Thank you for supporting this exciting event.
Between April 30th - May 16th, 2013, third, fourth, and fifth graders throughout the State of Washington will be taking the Measurement of Student Progress (MSP). The MSP will allow students to display their mastery of key learning goals in reading and mathematics. In addition to reading and math, fourth grade will test in the area of writing, and fifth grade will test in the area of science. We are asking that parents please pay special attention to the sleep and nutritional needs of their children and avoid absences if at all possible during the testing dates. It is extremely important that all our students have the opportunity to do their very best. If you would like more information to help prepare your student for the MSP, you can access information at www.k12.wa.us. Go eagles you are the best!
Mark Keating, Principal
