Welcome Baby Luke James McIntosh!

Eagles! Mrs. McIntosh had her baby on Friday, May 1st at 1:02 pm. He weighed 6 lbs 10 oz! We wish Mrs. McIntosh and family the best! It is great to have some positive news!

Mom and baby are both doing well. It is Mrs. McIntosh's 3rd child and she said "Luke sleeps for about 5 minutes and then wants to be held". We have all been there! Good Luck!

Mrs. McIntosh is an Educational Assistant at Elginburg & District Public School.

Happy Mother's Day!

We want to wish all of our Mothers and "Mother role" parents out there a well deserved special day on Sunday! People in a mothering role play such an important role in raising the amazing students we have at Elginburg!

Take care of yourselves! Being a "Mother" is a lot of work; especially during trying times. Remember to be kind to yourself! You are amazing and you are doing a great job! Really!!

Thank you for being part of our Elginburg & District Public School community!

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.
