Letter from Principal Kloss, May 13

Dear Elsmere Families,

Summer seems to have arrived in a flash and we’re loving it at Elsmere. Our oldest to youngest students enjoyed some memorable events last week. Our “Big Kids” in fifth grade had a visit with Nature on Wheels who led them in exploring the Elsmere woods as well as teamwork and problem solving activities. The kindergartners performed some songs and led their guests in a sing-along under the canopy. It was a fun week for sure! Enjoy some  photos from  the week here.

We have a few special announcements for the coming week:

  • Our May PTA meeting will be held virtually on Monday, May 16 at 7pm. A link will be shared soon.
