Letter from Principal Kloss, Feb. 14

Filed in Archive, Elsmere by on February 14, 2020

Dear Elsmere Families,

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope this note finds you anticipating or having a wonderful February break together with your sweet children. If you are looking for something fun to do, please check out the public library’s website or the local site: http://albany.kidsoutandabout.com/ .  Of course, the break is a great time to master those math facts. Hopefully you will be able to snuggle up with a good book too!

The special fun events and the daily aha! moments we so enjoy, have made this a great school year so far. You can get a peek at just some of these times on our photo albums on the webpage. For a blast from the past, here is a fun Elsmere album from 2016

Over 60 Elsmere students took the extra time and effort to complete submissions for the National Handwriting Contest! Congratulations to all of those who truly showed their Elsmere PRIDE. The following submissions were selected and sent for judging at the national level: Addison S., Caleb O., Yuzuki I., Molly K., Alexis P., and Lulu W.

Have a beautiful vacation. We return to school on our 100th day together, February 24. We hope to see you at our Hoops for Heart event on Thursday, February 27.

Sincerely,

Kate Kloss
