Letter from Interim Principal Andy Baker, May 25

Filed in Elsmere by on May 25, 2018

Dear Elsmere Families,

Our annual senior assembly took place yesterday. This is a very special event where current seniors who went to Elsmere are invited back to be recognized at a school-wide assembly. I was extremely proud to be a part of this tradition. We wish all the seniors the best as they move on to the next stage of their lives.

Our positive recognition program continued this week in the cafeteria. The students have been very excited to earn tickets for displaying the expected behaviors. Sometimes, with programs such as this, the focus can become too much on the extrinsic reward and not the positive behavior itself. I have not seen this. The children seem very eager to show their best character and to treat others kindly!

Have a nice long weekend. Thank you for all you do to support Elsmere and for sharing your wonderful children with us every day!

Sincerely,

Andy Baker
