Upcoming Dates

Track & Field-Wednesday, May 18

Elma's annual Track & Field events will be held tomorrow, Wednesday, May 18, 2016. Our rain date will be Friday, May 19. I have asked students to come prepared for the weather and dressed in layers. For safety reasons, students are expected to wear running shoes, comfortable clothing, and bring lots of water (or a water bottle they can refill at school). Also, if the sun is out, a hat and sunscreen would be a wise choice.

Stuff the Bus! Friday, May 20

In support of the families who have been displaced by the fire in Fort McMurray, John Chapman has contacted local schools and would like to donate a bus so that we stuff it with items to help these families in need. Newry Coach lines has arranged for a trucking company to get the items collected to Alberta. Please see the attached flyer for a list of suggested items. We have asked that students bring these items to school no later than Friday, May 20, 2016.
