Letter from Principal Kloss, Oct. 21

Dear Elsmere Families,

It is hard to believe that next week is the end of October already! We have grown as a school community together with lots of fun and meaningful activities as shown in our weekly photos. Thank you for your partnership as we continuously help each person at Elsmere, ourselves included, to grow as learners and as people.

Reminder about reporting absences, lateness or early dismissal! You may simply complete this form or you are welcome to contact the office. This form is also on our Elsmere Family Google Site.

Has your child needed to borrow clothes from the nurses’ office this year? If so, we ask that you please return these to school so we have something for other friends who may need them. We appreciate that they are clean and ready to lend out upon return. If you have extra sweatpants, shirts or sweatshirts in good condition to donate, we are happy to accept these too. Thank you!

Elsmere School is bringing back our in-person Veterans Day assembly which will be held on Thursday, November 10 at 2:00. We invite Elsmere families to honor a special veteran in their lives. If your veteran can attend the assembly, or you would like to include their photo in our video, please click here. Stars were sent home on Monday for families to decorate and return for our school bulletin board.

The first ever BC Spirit Run will be held on Friday, November 11 at the Elm Ave. Town Park. Find out more information about this event, and other fun family activities in our virtual backpack here
