Letter from Principal Kloss, May 26

Filed in Elsmere by on May 26, 2017


Dear Elsmere Families,

With just over four weeks left of school, the learning and fun is full steam ahead. Over the next two weeks we will have Freihofer Athlete’s visit with Hannah Davidson (6/1), grade 5 Survivor Day (6/5), and author visit with Jeff Mack (6/6). What a terrific time to be at Elsmere!

At our Senior Assembly this week, we congratulated soon to graduate high school seniors who attended Elsmere as elementary students. Recognizing these young adults as they begin their next big journey and hearing about how Elsmere contributed to their success, is simply inspiring. This assembly always helps us adults reflect on just how meaningful these childhood days are. Thank you for your partnership in creating days filled with not only learning, but laughter, listening and love as well.

Doesn’t it seem like just yesterday that your sweet little children were babies? Today a “frame” will be coming home for a baby picture of your child. We would love to have you send this back in next week for our final bulletin board of the year. If you have gently used baby/toddler clothes you are looking to give away, you may send these in too for the school spirit club’s local charity collection (until June 9).

Congratulations to Mrs. Woller who was recently selected for the Cap Com Make a Difference Educators Award.

On Monday, Memorial Day, we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom of others. I wish you peace and love as we remember these heroes. There will be no school on Monday, May 29. If your child will be marching in the town parade, I’ll see you there!

Kate Kloss
