Principal's Message

Happy New Year! We are excited to get back into the swing of things here at Elmdale School. January is a month with a couple fun events at our school. The first one is welcoming Colleen Watchorn to our school as a guest artist She will be working with each student in our school K-4 designing artwork. This artwork will be available to view during our Family Celebration of Learning event held in February.

Later in the month of January, we will be hosting Rocks and Rings. This will be a fun event where Curling Canada sends out some staff to introduce curling to our students in the gym. This will include our Grades 1-4 students and we look forward to participating.

Lastly, at some point in January, you will receive a note from your classroom teacher to touch base regarding your child's Home Reading program and any possible changes to expect.

Again, Happy New Year!

Take Care,

Mr. Colin Campbell (B.A., B.Ed, M.Ed)
