ESS Weekly Family Update

Week ending 4/29/2022

Update from Mrs. Weber

The first week of SBAC testing in Grade 3 was very successful. Thank you to our staff and students for working so hard all week long.

The weather continues to be quite windy and chilly at recess-when children are wearing shorts and shirt sleeves they are often complaining how cold they are. Please be sure they are dressed accordingly.

I look forward to celebrating Staff Appreciation week next week. PTO and myself will be providing something different for all staff everyday. Be sure to return the teacher page that was sent home a few weeks ago so we can hang them up. The staff here at ESS is simply amazing and I am so lucky to be part of it. Thank you also to the students and families for making ESS the special place that it is.

If you have plans to move before the start of the new school year, please email Mrs. Quinlan ( This helps us in making class lists. The staff and I devote much time and thought when placing your child in a class. Parental requests for specific teacher placements will not be considered; however, if there are any special circumstances or consideration regarding class placement, please notify me via email.

Anonymous Parent Survey-if you haven't done so already, please use this link to fill it out-it will remain open until 5/17/22

Please scroll all the way down to see the dates for all the upcoming events. I am so excited to have so many fun events planned through June.

Have a nice weekend-Mrs. Weber
