Veterans Day Celebration -Thursday, November 11th at 8:15 AM

We would like to invite all Veterans and their family members for our Veterans Day Program, with our students singing at the flag pole and a parade following the program. Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops are encouraged to wear their uniforms, and students are encouraged to wear red, white and blue to honor our Veterans. The ceremony will be held outside by the flag pole on Thursday, November 11th at 8:15 am. Breakfast will be provided to our Veterans after the ceremony by the Elm Grove Staff and PTA in the EGE Cafeteria! We hope you can attend this very special event.

Canned Food Drive Nov 8 - Nov 17

Elm Grove Eagles! This year we are going to support our community by assisting the Society of St. Stephen with a Thanksgiving Canned Food Drive! Last year we were able to support 500 families in our community!

How can you help support our Community? Bring non perishable items to your classroom from November 8th - November 17th. Each item brought to school counts as 1 item in the count. Food items must not be expired, so check your expiration dates! Also, we will not collect any food items that need to be stored in a refrigerator! Only cans and dry goods, please!

Be a Charity Champ! Each grade level class who brings the most food donation items will be recognized as the Charity Champ during the Turkey Trot and receive the Charity Champ Trophy to display in their classroom for the year!

Rise Against Hunger Event- Sunday, November 14th

Please join us for a service learning project brought to our school. The class with the most partcipants will earn a pizza party! All food bagged on Sunday, November 14th will be sent to families in Haiti. See the flyer below to register your family!

Thanksgiving Feast

Unfortunately, due to food shortages across the state and nation, we will not be able to have visitors for the Thanksgiving Feast this year. Students and staff will still have the traditional Thanksgiving sides, but a non-traditional meat will be served. We are, however, excited to have you participate in the Turkey Trot (see more information below) on Friday, November 19th! Here is some further information from Child Nutrition regarding Thanksgiving meals:

  • Thanksgiving Meals - Unfortunately, there will be no turkey available this year for the Thanksgiving Meals. Even though we provided forecasts and ordered two months out, our supplier could not obtain them. We did try to look into other options such as ham, roast, and tamales, but ran into the exact same issues with our supplier unable to procure those foods for us either. We will still be offering all of the Thanksgiving Day side items (Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, etc.), but the center of the plate protein item will be subbed out.

Turkey Trot - Friday, November 19th

Come one, come all and join your child for Elm Grove's annual Turkey Trot on Friday, November 19th. Students are encouraged to invite friends, family, neighbors, staff and faculty to walk/jog with them. Due to safety reasons, we ask that all pets be left at home. Every time a student or adult completes one lap around the track, they will be given one colored popsicle stick. At the end of the class period, the Specials teachers will collect and count sticks from each homeroom class. The individual class in each grade level with the most laps completed will receive a trophy to be kept in their classroom until the end of the year! See all you "TROTTERS" on Friday, November 19th.

*Please note that additional school age children, including EGE students, are not able to participate in the Turkey Trot, as they should be participating in their regularly scheduled school classes. Elm Grove students should only attend their own grade level Turkey Trot.

Student Safety- Morning Drop Off

If you drop off your student in the mornings and they are being dropped off in the street, students must walk on the sidewalk and not cut through the grass and walk through the parking lot. It is hard to see small children, and we want our students to be safe! It is safest to stay in the car line and drop your students off where staff and safety patrol can assist students getting out of the cars.
