Elmdale Early Years School
Year End 2016 Newsletter
Wow this year went by fast!
It has been a wonderful year here at Elmdale School. At our last assembly June 24th we said goodbye to our Grade 4 students. The staff had a moment to thank the grade 4 students for their leadership in our school. Our Grade 4 students have helped out with lunch monitoring, bus captains, buddy reading, Kindergarten buddies, and most importantly model appropriate behaviour for the younger students. It has been a pleasure working with our Grade 4 students this year! We wish you all the best in middle school!
For our returning students, we look forward to seeing everyone September 6th for our Meet Your Teacher event. Please note of the following times:
5:00-5:15 NEW families to Elmdale have access to their child's classroom.
5:15-6:00 Returning families arrive and have access to their child's classroom.
5:20-5:30 NEW Families information session with Mr. Campbell.
For all the students at Elmdale School, we wish you a safe, healthy, and happy summer break!
Thank you and we will see you soon,
Mr. Colin Campbell
