Principal's Message

Mr. Thomas J. Coughlin
Elden Principal 

April 2024
Dear Elden families,
I hope you are having a great start to the month of April. The weather has been so unpredictable lately. I heard it is going to snow again this week. Spring seems so far away. Here are some highlights from last month:

  • Golden Table winner for March: Mr. Rindfuss’s 2nd grade class!
  • Winners of the 3 Bees popcorn parties were Ms. Gilkey/Dahm/Delia’s 2nd grade class with 188 tickets; Mrs. Pellett/Aldrich’s UPK class with 173 tickets; and Mrs. Cook’s 4th grade class with 161
  • The All-District Gr. 5 & 6 band concert!

Our Cultural Diversity Fair was rescheduled to be held with our STEAM Fair on Thursday, April 4, 2024 from 6:30 to 7:30pm with set up starting at 6:00pm at Elden.
I’d like to welcome Mrs. Penoyer, our new school nurse who starts on April 1, 2024.. She has been introduced to all of the classroom teachers and students. We are so excited to have her join our Elden team.
Speaking of introductions, Ms. Fiorini was appointed to the BOE last night as the new Elden Elementary School Principal. Some of you might remember her as our Administrative Intern back in the 2021-2022 school year at Elden. Since that time, she has been an assistant principal for the North Syracuse Central School District. We are so happy to bring her home!
Please check out our PTA at: Our next meeting will be Tuesday, April 9, 2024 at 6:30pm. We will be meeting online and we will send out the link to join on the day of the PTA meeting. As you know, our PTA is responsible for the many wonderful events that take place throughout the school year.
Make sure you check your email often. We will be updating you on upcoming events. Also, check the calendar of dates on the back of the April newsletter.

Mr. Coughlin
