As the days get warmer, just a reminder about our dress code

Girls tops should have a shoulder strap AT LEAST three (adult) fingers wide - no spaghetti straps are allowed at school.

 Shorts should be AT LEAST finger tip length when your hands are hanging at your sides.

Dresses should also be AT LEAST finger tip length - girls may want to wear shorts under their dresses for when they play on the playground. 

 NO hats are to be worn in school.

 NO flip flops -  shoes or sandals should have back straps.

Did you know that a banker from DMCU ( Clawson Community Credit Union) comes to accept deposits from students every Thursday morning.  It's a great way to get your children in the habit of saving money.  We have forms in the office if you would like to open an account.


Turn Markers into Energy!

All around Schalm Elementary students and teachers will be collecting used markers that are ready to be discarded.  The markers will be sent to a facility where they will be converted into clean fuel.  This fuel can be used to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals and more!

 Please help support our efforts by sending  your kids in with any used markers you may have around the house.  The Drop-off box will be located near or in the Library for your child to deposit markers.!

With the help of parents like you and schools across the country the Crayola ColorCycle program can keep tons of plastic out of landfills each year!!!!


Just a reminder, if you do not pick your students up in a timely manner, they will be sent to latchkey and you will have to pay a fee.  If you have a one time emergency, please call the office and let us know and we will see if we can help you.  The office number is 248-655-4949.

If you are a low income family and need a backpack for your student please contact us  and we will  help you will a backpack and maybe some school supplies.  248-655-4949


Please have your students dress for the weather.  They may go outside for recess everyday.

If your child has been ill with vomiting, fever or diarrhea please make sure to keep them home at least 24 hours after the last the they were sick, or 24 hours- fever free (without medication)
