Principal's Message

It's that time of year already. May has flown by and June is already here. May was another exciting month at Elmdale School. We were able to welcome our NEW Kindergarten students for next school year at our Kindergarten Welcome Evening. We enjoyed a fun bus ride, warm welcome from the kindergarten teachers, as well as Mr. Campbell's favorite story, Have You Filled A Bucket Today. Students left their visit with a new green slip t-shirt, bucket filling pencil, and a sticker.

During the month of May, we are also busy preparing to send our Grade 4 students to their new Middle Schools. This transition involves staff and some students from the middle school coming to talk to our Grade 4's about their new school. Then parents had the opportunity to meet the staff of their new school at an evening orientation. Later in the month of June, we will take our Grade 4's to their middle school during the day to meet more staff and students as well as have a school tour.

Looking ahead in June, we are excited to finish our year off with another family picnic. Please see the information below regarding lunch order forms.

Have a wonderful June!

Coffee With The Principal

June 16th I will be hosting our first Coffee With The Principal. This will take place in the school library at approx. 9:45 am, right after our assembly. This will be a very informal come-and-go 30-minute coffee and chat time.

I believe that the school-family partnership is extremely important in education and I feel this opportunity will be a great first step in growing this partnership.

I will make sure that I have some Tim Hortons coffee ready and I look forward to the conversations that may take place. Any parent is welcome to attend.

Elmdale Family Picnic June 28

Beginning at 11:40 and ending at 12:40, we would like to invite all our Elmdale families to enjoy a picnic lunch with your child. Again for this year, we will be ordering Subway sandwiches by advance order only. You will receive an order form June 12th and the form and payment must be returned to the school by June 16th.
