Today, Friday, October 24 is a teacher in-service day. There are no classes for students. Enjoy your day off!
It’s getting a little chillier outside this Fall, and we will still be taking children outside for recess. Please be sure that your child is dressing for the cooler temperatures – jackets, sweatshirts, long pants – so that they can enjoy their outdoor play time.
Your child will be bringing home his/her school pictures today or tomorrow. Please note that, if you are not pleased with the pictures, your child can have the picture re-taken on November 18 from 9:00 – 10:00 AM. Your child will need to return the entire picture packet to the photographer. If you have any other problems with your pictures, please notify the school office at 872-9540, ext. 3600.

Earlier today some students and community members reported a concern regarding suspicious activity near the school. Millersville Police were notified and increased their presence in and around the borough roads near the school. This increased police presence was in response to a concern of unusual activity observed by a few of our walkers and community members. The Millersville Police were able to resolve this issue.
As always, we appreciate the community being alert to our children’s safety. Please take this opportunity to review safety tips with your children. We encourage our children to report any unusual activity that might concern them. Feel free to contact me with any concerns.
Tomorrow is Exercise for Eshleman and students will be walking/running laps, completing an obstacle course and participating in a music station. For student’s comfort and safety, children should wear sneakers, jeans/pants and have a jacket/sweatshirt. We are planning for a day of fun and good weather!
