Basic School Supplies Provided

With everything as unsettled as it is, and with the support of the Elger Bay PTA, we are hoping to make school supplies much easier for the time being. Basic initial supplies, including such items as composition books and a white board w/ marker, are being purchased and provided for every student.


For now, unless you have the specific desire to supplement what is provided, please do not feel the pressure to go out and buy other supplies. If/when we return to to a hybrid or even full model later in the year and need to enhance what students have, we will communicate with you at that time.


(see the article: School Items Distribution Days)

School Items Drive Through Distribution Days

The Elger Bay School Items Drive Through Distribution Days will be held on the following two days:


Monday, August 31, 9:00-4:00


Tuesday, September 1, 9:00-4:00


On that day, parents are asked to drive to school and to the back of the school (following the normal pickup line route). Staff will be present to bring you the items that have been prepared for your students.


Hopefully this will only be needed once, but the possibility that some things do not arrive in time is there and we may need to have a round 2 a week or so later.


Items:

- Basic School Supplies

- Math Expressions workbook (for applicable grades)

- Reading "Journeys" Basal (for applicable grades)

- Copies of valuable literacy materials (K-1)

- Chromebook (if needed)

- CLEVER portal QR Badges

- Internet Hotspots (that have been arranged for w/ Mr. Blom)

Student Placement Letters

A letter informing you of which teacher your child has been placed with will be sent out later this week. I do not want to promise a date, as many things are still fluid, but I am hoping they will be placed in the mail on Wednesday/Thursday, which means they will likely arrive Saturday/Monday.


If by end of business Monday you have not received this letter, please give our office a call.

Building Tour for Kindergarten and New Families

I sent out this video last spring to give our new kindergarten and new students along with you a glimpse of our school building interior. Needless to say, some of these spaces will be used and others not right now for safety, but I hope this gives you a feel and flavor for the beautiful facility that is our pride, Elger Bay Elementary. Stick to the end and you will have a look at the kindergarten rooms.

Elger Bay Elementary Parent (all) ZOOM Invitation

Hello Elger Bay Elementary Families,


On Friday evening, August 28, 5:00 PM I will be holding a zoom meeting just for all of the Elger Bay Elementary parents and guardians. I will provide a brief presentation (similar but pared down to what was presented at the SCSD Elementary Reopening zoom last week, with an overview of K-5 at Elger Bay and will then open it up to you for questions from the audience.


I know the information feels like it is flowing fast and furious (it is:-), but I am hoping to have a chance to check in with you, answer as many questions as possible, and figure out what I still need to clarify for you. Below is the full invitation:
