Letter from Interim Principal Baker, Mar. 29

Filed in Elsmere by on March 29, 2018

Dear Elsmere Families,

I want to wish all of you an enjoyable spring break and a Happy Easter and Passover season. Let’s hope the weather improves so we can enjoy more time outside!

This past Tuesday we held the Annual Science Fair, organized by the PTA. Thanks to all who participated. The projects were very interesting and it was great to hear the children explain what they learned!

Looking ahead, when we return from break, students in Grades 3, 4, and 5 will be taking the NYS ELA Assessments on April 11th and 12th. Please know that we view the tests as only one of many indicators of the academic progress. We continually tell the children to do their best, but not to be stressed. It’s important to maintain routines, get a good night’s sleep and eat a healthy breakfast every day of the week. Please avoid scheduling appointments on the mornings of the exam days. Let me know if you have any questions.

Have a great week!

Sincerely,

Andy Baker
