Principal's Message

As December winds down, we had the opportunity to watch our wonderful Christmas Concert. Thank you to Ms. Redekop for all the time in planning the concert and working with our students to prepare for the excellent event.

Moving forward into January, we are excited to welcome Mrs. Colleen Watchorn as a guest artist in our school. She will be working with all our students from January 9th to the 20th. Each year that Mrs. Watchorn comes to work with our students, the art work that our students create always looks unique and amazing.

Again, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays and also a Happy New Year.

Take care,

Mr. Colin Campbell

Community Christmas

On behalf of all the teachers at Elmdale School, we would like to say a huge thank you to all of those families that sent food items along with their students in support of our Community Christmas food drive. Altogether we were able to collect 841 items! It was great seeing the boxes fill up in the classrooms as excited students put various items in to help support our community. All your contributions were greatly appreciated!
