Dear Elsmere Families,

Thank you to all who participated in the school budget vote this week. The budget overwhelmingly passed and three board of education members were selected. It was also great to see so many students participating in their “civic duty” as they collaboratively selected the new playground equipment for Frisbee disc golf.

The art show this week was fantastic! I hope you had a chance to stroll through our gallery yesterday evening. Many thanks to art teachers Ms. Fortin and Ms. Adams for cultivating the visual arts in every child.

Congratulations to the 59 students who participated in Screen Free Week last week. I know this can be quite a challenge for students (and parents!), but the benefits are worth the effort.

As the warm weather arrives, please be reminded of the Bethlehem Central dress code intended to help students develop appropriate clothing choices for the setting. Spaghetti straps, belly shirts and other revealing clothing are discouraged in the school setting.  For your child’s safety, only appropriate shoes should be worn for running and playing on the playground.  Sandals may slip off and we want to prevent accidents if possible. 

One of my favorite quotes is: “Children spell ‘love’ T-I-M-E.” Enjoy a wonderful weekend with your delightful children!
