Dear Elsmere Families,
What a busy end of the year we are having! Many
thanks to all who voted on the school budget this week.
Participating in this civic duty sets an excellent example for
children, who we hope will be active participants in the world
around them as adults too.
This week, we enjoyed visits from author James Preller and local historian, Jeff Bennett. Students at various grade levels were able to spend time with these professionals as they shared the ins and outs of their areas of expertise.
Thank you to Meghan Hotaling and her team who hung all the amazing student artwork throughout the Elsmere halls in preparation for our Art Show next week. We hope you can come by on Wednesday, May 29 for our art show. Get ready to be impressed by the great pieces produced by our students under the tutelage of art teachers Ms. Fortin and Mrs. Painter.
Friday will be a busy day at Elsmere. Our fifth graders will spend most of the day at the town park together with fifth graders across the district as they work on team building exercises to prepare for the middle school. In the morning, K-4 students will be treated to a visit with Elite Athlete Michelle Frey who will be in town for the Freihofer's Run. At at 2:30, we will all gather together to honor graduating BC seniors who attend Elsmere for their elementary years. It is sure to be a wonderful day for all.
If you have not already done so, please take a moment to complete our Elsmere Mission Statement survey as begin to plan for the coming year. http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GBKDZFH
I wish you all an enjoyable three day weekend. See you at the parade!
