Besides field trips, Elm Middle School students also participate in special events that are directly connected to the curriculum. These include the following:
► Diversity Day — activities throughout the school day at Elm, including guest speakers
► ’50s and ’60s Day — includes quiz show program and sock hop at school
► EPHS Musical — attendance at Elmwood Park High School’s annual spring musical production
► Civil War Day — activities throughout the school day at Elm, including guest speakers and an assembly speaker
► Olympic Day — activities throughout the school day at Elm and awards
The permission form that parents must sign for field trips also gives permission to students to participate in these and other special events. Please download the form appropriate for you.
At the start of each school year the Elm administration sends parents a list of planned activities and field trips. Whatever costs are associated with special activities are included in the total field-trip cost for each student.
