We had many great events and student performances during the 2nd nine weeks at Elgin. We raised over 1600 dollars during our Pennies for Patients fundraiser. Because of this, I got to experience what it feels like to get a pie thrown into my face. The 5th grade performed a very touching ceremony to honor all service men and women during our Veteran’s Day ceremony. Our 1st, 3rd and Cosmic Beat students did an amazing job sharing their talents at the holiday program.
At Elgin Elementary School, our teachers do a great job of modeling collaboration and teamwork. Many classes in different grade levels frequently interact with one another to allow our older students to be positive peer role models for our younger students. 1st grade classrooms created writing celebrations for their students to highlight the growth they have made with their writing for the year. 5th grade students had the opportunity to help facilitate hands on experiments performed by our kindergarten students. Kindergarten students completed experiments learning about how sound is created.
Our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) has done a wonderful job supporting our staff and students at Elgin. They created a Secret Santa Shop which allowed for our students to purchase gifts for their loved ones for the holiday season. Thank you to all the parents who support in so many ways at Elgin. We couldn’t do it without you!
