Students in grades K-5 at Elsmere Elementary School in Delmar have teamed up with the local Hannaford Supermarket to brighten the shopping experience of local customers. With brightly colored hearts and rainbows and student messages that include phrases like “Stay Positive,” “Stay Safe,” “Happy Day,” and “Love is Key,” the bags are headed to the Hannaford in Delaware Plaza and will be in circulation later this week. First, the bags must spend three days in “isolation” as a COVID health and safety precaution.

The community project was spearheaded by Elsmere School’s Library Media Specialist Jaimee Meyer as part of the school’s library class this week. The bags were donated to the school by the Delmar Hannaford.

Elsmere Elementary School is part of the Bethlehem Central School District, where one the district’s core values is COMMUNITY. The district, its students and staff are committed to strengthening family, school and community partnerships. That commitment has never been more important than right now.
