Elmcrest Elementary School


Dear Elmcrest family,

It is hard to believe it is May already.  Where has the time gone?

The NYS Test in Math will be May 2-4 for students in Grades 3-6.  I hope I see as many students as possible taking the Math tests at Elmcrest.  Remember our motto is "take the test and do your best!"

After  two weeks of ELA testing, I would like to say how proud I was of all of our students in Grades 3-6 who took the NYS test in ELA.  They were fantastic!  When I waked around the building I observed many of our E2P2 character strengths in action: perseverance, enthusiasm, integrity, bravery, love of learning and self-control.  It was an amazing sight to see.  As our Elmcrest students move on to the middle school and high school, where test taking is a regular daily occurrence, they will be up for the challenge!  Good for them and good for all of the parents who encouraged their children to "take the test and do their best!"
