Staff Changes

We have a few staff changes to share with you.

Grade 2/3 News

I am happy to report that Mrs. Wadman-Mills will be returning to work on Monday, May 4th. We are excited to have her back but are also sad to see Mrs. Reynold's leave us! We thank Mrs. Reynold's for all she has done for her class and the school. She will be greatly missed by her students and the staff.

Student Support Teacher News

Mr. Chanook is taking a leave for the remainder of the school year. We wish him well and will miss him! Mrs. LaRochelle has returned as our Student Support Teacher. We welcome her back with open arms!

Grade 5/6

Mrs. Coulas will continue to teach the Grade 5/6 class for the remainder of the year and is now full time! Her class will be happy to hear this news!

Spirit Days!

We are going to keep the Elginburg School Spirit ALIVE even though we are apart!

Each Friday, we will have a Spirit Day! Please take a picture of yourself and Tweet it or post it in your google classroom with the hashtag #elginburgspirit.

Mrs. Duncan will keep all of the pictures and will create a slide show for the end of the year!

Friday, May 1 - Wacky Hair Day - take a picture in the kitchen and post it!

Friday, May 8 - Hat Day - take a picture on the couch and post it!

Friday, May 15 - Fancy Outfit Day - take a picture standing at your front door and post it!

Let's make this fun, Eagles! Don't forget the hashtag #elginburgspirit !

Kindergarten Registration

We are currently accepting kindergarten registrations for in-area Elginburg students. If you are unsure of your home school, please check the Triboard School eligibility search link HERE.

All registrations can be completed online and the link to access this is below. If you are having difficulty, please send a direct email to our general mailbox elgin@limestone.on.ca with details of how best to reach you. We look forward to welcoming our new kindergarten friends!

Student Placements 2020-2021

April is typically the time of year that we begin to think about class organizations and staffing for the next school year. This year is no exception, and we are beginning to organize for the upcoming school year. This includes staffing, timetables and new registrations. Our planning also addresses next years’ class placements.

The creation of classes is a very complex task that takes into account many factors. When determining placements for next year we consider learning and academic needs, emotional and social needs, gender balance and class size to name a few.

We recognize that, in a few individual cases, there may be important reasons why a specific placement is necessary. In these cases, I request that you submit a written email request directly to elgin@limestone.on.ca indicating the reasons for your request. The request should identify the optimal conditions for your child’s success but should not indicate a specific teacher request. We will do our best to accommodate your child’s needs but cannot guarantee specific placements at this time. All written requests must be received no later than Friday, May 8th.

We appreciate your support and understanding in this matter.
