Send in your TALENT by Friday

Have you entered the Elginburg Virtual Talent Show! Everyone will be accepted!

Students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 are invited to submit a 1 minute (or less) video of a performance or a photograph of an art project. These performances and pictures will be put together into a Talent Show Video to be shared within our school community (via Google Classrooms and YouTube). The video will be uploaded to a school YouTube channel and shared in each Elginburg Google Classroom for families to view at home.

Please note that we can not control if some families share images or video clips to their own social media.

To submit a clip, a parent/guardian must complete the submission form, available at: https://forms.gle/euyv1onhBk73dfEi7

All submissions must be in by Friday, June 5th.

Happy Birthday!

Retrieval of Student Belongings - Monday, June 8th

On Monday, June 8th, your child and one adult are invited to the school to collect his/her belongings. Cones and markers will be set up for social distancing. There will be 2 staff members working at each door. One to actively screen you before you enter the building and the other to walk you to your child's classroom. You will exit from the other side of the building to ensure we are social distancing.

When you enter, you will be asked a series of questions to ensure you are healthy and you will be asked to sanitize your hands as you enter and exit.

Each class has been given an hour time slot. Families with more than one child are invited to line up once, at the time/location of the oldest student.

Grade 8 Graduation

Our Grade 8 Graduation Ceremony will be live streamed through Google Classroom on Tuesday, June 23rd at 6:00 pm. Parents of Graduates can send the link to the grandparents and we will record the ceremony for anyone who missed it! The link will be emailed to you closer to the date.

Grade 8 graduates will be given a time slot in the afternoon of the 23rd to come to the school with one parent to pick up their "Swag Bag" and get a final photo of themselves at our school. There will be a lovely backdrop in the front foyer for the pictures. Make sure you dress up in your grad dress or suit for the afternoon photo and for the ceremony.

The theme of graduation is being chosen this week by the grade 8 class and they will be voting for a Valedictorian, too!

We look forward to celebrating our amazing Grade 8 Class!

Yard Supervisor Jobs Available

As we begin to plan for the next school year, we are looking for people who may be interested in being a Paid Yard Supervisor. Some of our supervisors come every day at our afternoon Nutrition Breaks/Recesses, some commit to a few times a week. The schedule can be flexible!

We rely on finding people for these positions as it adds extra eyes and ears to our lunchrooms and playgrounds.
