Principal's Letter


April 11, 2014

Dear Elsmere Families,

Happy Spring Break! Today, we honor three very special members of the Elsmere staff: Mrs. Calaban, Mrs. Brock and Nurse Isenberg. I think everyone would agree that these women are the backbone of the school. But rather than simply “doing their job”, they provide our children, families and staff so much more. From before school begins to after the last student leaves and each moment in between, their kind, efficient ways are world class. Thank you to our awesome clerical assistants and school nurse for going above and beyond for us!

Budget talks continue at BCSD and across the state. Please visit our website, attend BOE meetings and continue to stay informed about the budget of our district as BOE members begin to make important decisions.

Tonight is our Family Dance and Ice Cream Social with the Homespun Dancers beginning at 6:30. We hope to see you there! Students had a terrific time at the Homespun Dance school event yesterday – thank you PTA!

A special congratulations to Sam and Jane Clark who have completed the 1,000 Book program AGAIN! For at least eight years now the Clark family have embraced the spirit of the program.

Whether you are going out of town, or enjoying a “Staycation” over the break (be sure to check out the great programs at the public library), we wish you a fun and safe week.

Kate Kloss
