February at Elmdale is I Love to Read month! We're looking forward to a month filled with lots of reading experience to encourage all students to build a love for reading.
Recently we sent an email home with information about some of our reading challenges and prizes! Make sure to keep an eye out for more information on your child's SeeSaw account or by email. We have had some neighboring businesses donate money and prizes in order to make this happen. We are very fortunate to have a supportive community make these events happen!
Don't forget that each Friday is a "Dress Like Your Favourite Book Character" day, and also bring your favourite book to assembly to read! We have some special guest readers coming, including Corny Rempel who always puts on an amazing show for the school.
Lastly, don't forget to check out the book fair on the week of February 21-23! We will have extended hours on Thursday, February 23 for parents to come and check out the book fair with their kids. The Book Fair will be open until 5:00pm on that day only!
We look forward to an awesome month of reading!!

Pick up and Drop off
Please DO NOT drop off your children in the bus loop before school. One of our buses often arrives after 8:50 and vehicles in the bus loop make it difficult for the bus to safely navigate through.
You may pick your children up in the bus loop after school, provided that the buses have left already.
Celebration of Learning
We look forward to seeing you all at school on March 16!
Variety Music Therapy
At Elmdale we are fortunate to partner with Variety, the Children’s Charity of Manitoba and Music Therapist Beth Janzen to provide Music Therapy to some of our students. The sessions are always a real highlight for the kids involved. We recently got to host Variety for a visit so they could see the Music Therapy in action. We wish to thank Variety, the Children’s Charity of Manitoba for their generous support of this programming, as well as Ms. Beth for sharing her incredible skills and heart for our kids.
Variety, the Children’s Charity of Manitoba provides support to children living with special needs and experiencing economic disadvantage. To learn more about their programs visit www.varietymanitoba.com.
