Letter from Interim Principal Andy Baker, Mar. 23

Filed in Elsmere by on March 23, 2018

Dear Elsmere Families,

Good afternoon! Our One School One Book program is off and running. We are reading Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, by Grace Lin. The students are having fun answering daily trivia questions and talking about the book with peers and teachers. Today, order forms went out to students in homerooms to order more Grace Lin books if you would like to do so. Ask your child for the sheet to see the details on how to order. The autographed book will be distributed after Ms. Lin’s visit on May 9th. Please hand in form and payment to your teacher by Wednesday, April 11th.

We are going to be attempting to return our numerous lost and found items to their rightful owners over the coming school days. Many thanks to Mrs. Dubin for getting started the process of sorting and organizing the articles of clothing.  I will be laying them out on tables in the hallway so students can more easily spot them. We will let the teachers and noon-aides know so that they may encourage their students to look or to bring them by on their way to and from specials. Please encourage your children to look for missing items beginning Monday. Thanks for your cooperation!

Recently, Superintendent Jody Monroe sent home important information regarding school safety. This remains our number one priority and we are always evolving our practices to ensure we are prepared and well-rehearsed with our procedures. As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.


Andy Baker
