Elsmere History and School Song


The Elsmere Elementary School is located in the small community of Delmar, which is adjacent to the City of Albany.

Construction of the Elsmere School began in 1927, and it opened on September 4, 1928. It originally housed grades 1-8 in four rooms, with 41 first and second graders in one room and 26 seventh and eighth graders in another. Today we have 280 students enrolled in grades K-5, with class sizes ranging from 20-25 in 13 classrooms.

Elsmere School Song

Elsmere School’s the place to be
Home away from home, you see.
We all know
That when we go
We’ve had a place to love and grow.

Friends and teachers always caring
Time for learning and for sharing.
For all the ways
We spend our days
Elsmere School, we sing your praise.

(words and music by Cathy Schaeffer)
