That’s a wrap folks!  The 2016-2017 school year is in the books!  What a tremendous year this was!  Students began using iReady in Reading and Math K-5 and each student demonstrated growth.  In fact, many of our students were able to not only meet their growth targets but far exceed them!  We are always looking forward to new  finding ways to encourage and build up our students and interactions with parents.  This year our teachers and administration have been able to communicate even better using Class DOJO!  If you aren’t signed up, you are definitely missing out on what is happening with your child at Elgin! It is NOT TOO LATE!  Elgin Middle School will also be using Class DOJO starting this fall.  Get connected and be in the loop!

 

Enjoy this summertime break and don’t forget to Sharpen Your Saw because next year is right around the corner and will be here before we know it.  Here are some fun things that are available here at EES this summer.  Camp Invention is happening here at EES during the last week of June.  If you like to build, create, and invent, this camp if for you.  Summer School starts July 31st and runs through August 10th.  This is a great time to brush up on the reading and math skills right before school starts.  Summer lunches will be provided in all of the villages.  Rest, rejuvenate and celebrate all that has happened this year.  It has indeed been a year of growth on so many levels.  

 

2017-2018 will be a year of new opportunities for our students at EES.  The teachers, Mrs. Sterling and I have been planning and preparing better ways to meet the social, behavioral and academic needs of our children.  Kindergarten - 3rd grade teachers will be implementing Wilson’s Fundations as part of our Literacy Framework.  Kindergarten through 5th grade students will receive Writing Workshop instruction based upon the research and work of Lucy Calkins.  It is our hope that between these two additional programs our student will be able to flourish even more in the English Language Arts content area. One last change involves 4th and 5th grades.  With Writing being added as a separate Core, our students will receive a daily 25 minute dose of writing workshop.  This change in the schedule will increase our academic content time during the day.  This creates a change for 5th grade band.  5th grade will continue to have the opportunity to join band, but band practice will now be before school.  This is Win-Win because students can ride the High School/Middle School AM bus route and have more than double the current amount of time for instruction and practice with Mrs. Hoffman on Monday, Thursday and Friday.  Tuesday and Wednesday mornings will continue to be Cosmic Beat practice.  We are excited to see how our band develops with this additional practice time as well as how much we can increase our writing abilities K-5.  

 

Great things continue to happen at Elgin Elementary School!  Our students are equipped academically, emotionally and physically to meet the challenges life throws their way.  Truly, Elgin comets, LEAD THE WAY!!
