I wish you safe travels if you are hitting the roads to visit loved ones this holiday. Enjoy the long weekend with your children and family! Savor the memories as well as the food. I’ll be welcoming your child back on Tuesday, November 27th. They are bringing home an extra credit opportunity, be sure to ask them about it!
Due to the weather conditions, we will dismiss at 12:15 today, November 15, 2018. If your child rides the bus, he/she will come home on the bus. Walkers and car riders will also dismiss as usual. Stay safe!
Parents, I have decided to put the breaks on spelling lessons for this week even though we didn’t have a new lesson last week either. I explained to the students that with only a few days this week until the marking period ends we will use the time to review grammar. The next lesson, lesson 9, includes a vocabulary component that is best to tackle on the first week of the new marking period. Thank you for understanding.
Parents – Just a reminder that on October 19, Eshleman will be holding its Run for FUNds event to raise funds for field trips, assemblies, and other school activities. We are encouraging students to bring in the labels that went home last week, with family and friend’s addresses filled in. PTO will send out the letters with your labels attached.

There are fun individual prizes for students and individual classes. Thank you for supporting our school!
Dr. Cox presented our 6th graders with an opportunity to enter an essay contest sponsored by the VFW. It is a fantastic opportunity for students to showcase their writing. The theme this year is ‘Why I Honor the American Flag’. Students were excited about the cash prizes! Click on the link for details.
