Basketball Continues

Boys and Girls Intermediate Basketball continues and students are working hard! Thank you to Mrs. Gillott and Mr. Chanook for coaching! We have some amazing talent at Elginburg! Mrs. Turnbull is still working with our Junior Students on Wednesdays at lunch. Thank you!

Farewell Mr. Bush & Welcome Mr. McCormac

Mr. Bush, our grade 7/8 teacher is going on leave until September. We wish him well and look forward to seeing him in September!

Mr. McCormac will be taking over for him on February 3rd. Make sure you say "hi" to our newest staff member. He is thrilled to be coming to Elginburg and looks forward to meeting everyone!

Online Payments Coming Soon!

Online payments coming soon!

Our school is one of several schools to launch a new secure online portal that will allow families to complete payments and permission forms online. Parents and guardians will be invited via email to view their student’s school-related events such as field trips, sporting events or yearbook purchases. Parents/guardians will then be asked to complete the required permissions (if applicable) and complete payment via credit card or electronic funds transfer from their bank account. Instructions on how to register for this new system will be shared once the system goes live in March. This new portal will remove the risks associated with sending money to school with students, the frustration of lost or missing permission forms, and significantly reduce the amount of paper our school consumes. We look forward to sharing more information with you soon.
