Letter from Interim Principal Andy Baker, Mar. 9

Filed in Elsmere by on March 9, 2018

Dear Elsmere Families,

Good afternoon everyone. I want to start this week’s letter by recognizing Elsmere parent, Lisa Cronlund, who recently resigned from her noon-aide position. We want to thank Lisa for her service to our school and wish her well in her next endeavor. We welcome Laura Hopper to our staff. Our noon-aides work very hard to ensure a safe and positive lunch program here at Elsmere!

Last Tuesday, we had our annual Hoops for Heart fundraiser. Many hands helped out that night and we raised over $500 for the American Heart Association. Thanks to everyone for their support of this worthy cause!

Today, we conducted a building lockdown drill. The drill was a success and provided an opportunity to fine tune our procedures. We tell the students that we conduct these drills to practice what we would do if there was a situation where we needed to keep them safe. Our goal is to approach them seriously, but not in a way that promotes any unnecessary fear or anxiety. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Next week, we have several events to take note of. The PTA is meeting on March 13th at 7pm. The Book Huggers Club meeting that was canceled due to this week’s early dismissal was moved to Wednesday, March 14th at 6:30. As always, check the website for more detailed information on upcoming events.

Thanks and have a great weekend!


Andy Baker
