Principal's Message

March was a busy month at Elmdale! As teachers worked to prepare student report cards, the students were able to show a lot of their learning to their teachers. It's so exciting to see the progress throughout the year!

A highlight for March was definitely Elmdale Extravaganza week! Monday had many students with crazy hair, Tuesday was our annual pancake breakfast and PJ day, Wednesday was hat day, Thursday was "normal" day, and Friday our school was filled with a sea of green for Green Shirt Day! So fun to see students showing their good behaviour with their "green slip" green shirts!

We are looking forward to spring with April approaching. The schoolyard always gets a little sloppy as the snow melts, so just a quick reminder to send rubber boots, splash pants, and a change of socks to store in your child's backpack! Spring also brings our annual Exhibition Assemblies from our grade 1's and 2's, and our Variety Shows. Stay tuned for further info on these exciting events!
