Elba Junior/Senior High School
Monthly Update - November 2022
As we move into November and the colder months, I have reflected on the start of the school year and all we have accomplished so far. My hope is that this update highlights some of what we've been able to do together this school year. Similarly, I can't help but to feel excited about all we have left to achieve. With such talented and hardworking students, dedicated teachers, and committed families and community members, the possibilities are endless.
November is a month dedicated to being thankful, and I can't express just how thankful I am to have been afforded the opportunity to work in such a fantastic school. Please continue to reach out with any questions or concerns you may have. (585)757-9967 ext. 2150, or e-mail me at: email@example.com
I hope this season of thanks brings you and your family peace, happy memories, and opportunities to experience all the good life has to offer.
With Lancer Pride,
Conferences will be held on Monday and Tuesday November 21st and 22nd from 12:00-2:45, and should last around 15 minutes each. (Students will have half days of instruction, and will be dismissed at 11am on these days.) You can pick up your child's report card during your scheduled conference.
To schedule a conference, please reach out to your child's teachers.
Your partnership is valued and appreciated!
Students in Mr. Roote's Earth Science Lab make learning come to life as they demonstrate the effects of weathering and erosion on rocks.
These seniors enjoyed a breakfast and ceremony for being awarded scholarships and awards from local colleges and universities.
The task of breaking down details of pieces of art with specific, observable statements was an engaging one for these students in Mrs. Ellingham's Studio in Art class.
