Dear Elsmere Families,
Happy Hat Day! Sometimes the end of the winter can give people cabin fever, but we know how to beat this at Elsmere. From Hoops for Heart, Wacky Olympics and Read Across America Day to CAPER, Hat Day and Math and Science Night, it has been a very fun seven days!
Speaking of CAPER, a huge thank you to Kim Jada who organized our CAPER evenings this year. They were such a fun way to enjoy reading together, especially for our readers and their families at our March CAPER: Naomi C., Sophie L., Charlotte O., Hannah L., Maeve M., Zoey C., Sara C., Sierra D., Caroline C., Miranda C., and Sara S.
Next week we will be getting to know our neighbors a little better with visits from Dunkin’ Donuts, Murray’s Pizza, Bethlehem Tae Kwon Do and I Love Books. With our unique location between a quaint residential area and busy business district, we have many businesses which students pass by daily. We can learn a lot about how what we learn in school helps in “the real world”. We appreciate the time our neighbors are taking to come talk with classes and look forward to more visits the following week.
Our 5th grade choir will perform next at the BCSD Choral Festival on Thursday, March 20, as elementary, middle and high school choir students perform together. This is always a wonderful community event.
On Monday, March 10 Hamagrael Elementary will host a parent workshop presented by Dr. Randy Cale, a psychologist who has been working with families for over 15 years and has presented many workshops in the Capital Region. This event is open to all BC parents.
This week as part of the New York State Art Teachers Association 2014 Art Show, Elsmere students Caitlin Dubin, Jack Isaacs and Duncan Bartholomew had their artwork on display at the New York State Legislative Office. Congratulations!
Have a wonderful weekend!
