In celebration of May Music Month in Manitoba, we hosted a Spring Sing. This was a wonderful event and our students sang beautifully. Our Grades 3 and 4 singing and speaking parts were a fantastic addition to an already great performance from our Grades 1 and 2 students. Thank you to all the Elmdale families for attending the event.

Thank you to Ms. Redekop for hosting a fantastic Spring Sing!


On the afternoon of May 24th, Grade 1-4 students participated in Run...Jump...Throw day at Elmdale School. Students had an opportunity to participate in a variety of activities focusing on the skills of running, jumping and throwing. Thank you Mr. Thiessen for a great event!
