Winter 2017


Elgin Elementary School has cruised half way through the 2016-2017 school year in lightening speed!  So many amazing things have happened at EES that is almost impossible to list them all.  I do hope you enjoy the articles in this Communicator as they can give a sneak peak at what I am talking about.  The new year does seem to provide us a time to reflect on the past year and plan to move forward.  I would like to let you know what we have in store for the remainder of this school year!  Hold on ‘cause here goes:

  • Writer’s Workshop Professional Development for the entire K-5 staff, Jan-June

  • School Culture Professional Development for the entire K-5 staff

  • Leader in Me Book Study for New Staff

  • Literacy Committee delving into ELA programs

  • Health and Wellness activities with Kory Ute

  • Leadership Luncheons with retired teachers in February, area pastors in March, Businesses in April, and our School Board in May

  • Leadership Teams that meet once a month and continue to impact the school, our community and beyond! (Teams are Guys with Ties, Cooking, Math, Morning Meeting, Show Choir, Crochet, Fitness, Let’s Read 20, Comet Pride,Maps, Relaxation, Do-It-Yourself, Green, Kids Who Care, Language Diversity, Science, Dance, Comet Authors and Robotics)

Parents and Staff, please keep in mind that this listing is not complete.  There are many more activities that will be happening at EES that have yet to make it on the calendar.  EES will communicate all upcoming events through Class DoJo.  If you have not already signed up for Class DoJo, DO SO IMMEDIATELY!  Your child’s teacher has your access code!  This is such an easy way to communicate with staff and myself.  It is fast, it is easy and it is free - right to your phone!
