Farewell to Eshleman

Although I still have a few days to put in next week, I wanted to take a moment to wish “my” Eshleman community a last farewell. (Plus, I think the blog will be getting a face lift so I wanted to leave my mark while I still recognize it) Consider this, too, a collective thank you for all of the generous send-offs many of you extended to me along with the heartfelt notes and words. I have been incredibly humbled to have received the outpouring of support and well wishes. Please know that I am honored to have served the staff, students and families of Eshleman. You are all an amazing group of people – thank you for trusting in our school and the decisions we make day to day in the best interest of your children.

In addition, on behalf of the teachers and staff, I welcome Mrs. Jen Sugra as principal. I know that she will quickly find the same pride in Eshleman that I carry with me.

Enjoy the day,

Mrs. Anne Carroll

Picnic Thanks

Special thanks to organizers Hillary Buckwalter and Melissa Schaefer who helped make our Eshleman picnic a success. Despite the hot weather it was wonderful to gather as a school community to celebrate the end of year! Thank you to teachers, staff and parents who endured the heat to set up, serve food, run games, and clean up! You are fantastic! Special thanks to Mr. Ivey (deejay extraordinaire), Sugar Bowl (pizza perfect), Lashley Family (chip connection), and Turkey Hill (donation of drinks)!

Happy Summer!
