VIRTUAL SING-ALONG

Keeping the tradition of our Christmas Sing-Along we went virtual this year. The festivities were pre-recorded and the students were able to view in their individual classrooms on our last day together. We hope the students enjoyed watching as much as we enjoyed filming.


Please take the time to enjoy with your student again.

School Remind

We are excited to share that Elkmont Elementary School and the Limestone County School District is rolling out Remind [school/district]-wide! If you're not already familiar with Remind, it's a classroom communication tool that makes it easy to stay involved with your child's learning. Remind is free to use, and you'll be able to get and send messages on any device—even a simple text from your phone!

As part of this rollout, we are having parents join by (@elkmontfam). By joining the (Elkmont Elementary School ) remind account, you will be given the choice to opt-in to the district account where all announcements including weather alerts will be sent.



We're excited to make connecting with our families more engaging!

WIFI ON THE GO

Limestone County parents and employees! We are thrilled to bring you a brand new program where you can stay connected and take the internet with you! You can get a hotspot and UNLIMITED internet through the Limestone County Schools’ WiFi on the Go program. The hotspot is battery-powered and small enough to fit in your pocket. Plus, no contract, no extra fees, and no data throttling- all for $50 per month.

It's a great way to stay connected and you can only get it if you are an LCS employee or a parent. Get one for yourself or for family. Signing up helps raise funds for our very own schools here in Limestone County. Talk about a win-win - our kids win and you win too!

WiFi on the Go harnesses the power of T-Mobile's 4G/LTE cellular network to give you unlimited internet. Don't ever worry about data overage charges again, because there are none! If you want to find out about coverage where you live or work, just click https://www.t-mobile.com/coverage/coverage-map to view the coverage areas.

It's really easy to sign up. Just go to http://bit.ly/limestonewifi and click "WiFi on the Go" to get yours today! Type Limestone in the field that asks for a faculty or student ID.
