      • Students may ride the Elementary Bus home after tutoring.

  • Elgin Middle School is starting a Vex IQ Robotics team.  The goal of our team is to build teamwork, problem solving skills, and leadership.  We would like to compete in one competition this year and hopefully more in the future.  Through the robotics club students will learn valuable lessons and skills for life.   This team will be led by Miss Swanger, Digital Media Specialist, and Mr. Michael James, current student-teacher.  Mr. James competed in Vex Robotics as a student and competed at the World Competition in California.  

    The club will meet after school until 3:30 on Monday through Friday.  Currently we are working on transportation issues to allow students who ride the bus to compete in this club.

  • Just a reminder regarding grades 6-12 attendance policy. Students may only miss up to 5 days per quarter.  Absences beyond 5 days that are not super excused (Dr. Note/Court/Funeral) will result in failure of that quarter.
  • Please remind students to bring their charged chromebooks to school every day.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at 740-223-4300 if you have any questions.

Have a great week and as always #GoComets
