Parent Update- January 7th, 2019

Dear parents and guardians,

We hope that everyone had a wonderful and relaxing break. The staff at Elm Street is very excited to welcome students back to school!

In the new year, we have some opportunities and initiatives beginning that we would like to update you on;

  1. Choir- Through the support of a donor as well as Medicine Hat College conservatory, Elm Street School will be starting a choir. This is open to all students who are interested.  Grades K-3 will practice on Monday’s and Grades 4-6 will practice on Wednesdays. Practice will happen after school, from 2:45-3:30. Student’s participating will need to be able to walk or be picked up as we are not able to offer transportation.  If your child is interested in joining choir, please sign the permission form that has been sent home today, January 7th.

  1. Wrestling- Ms. Stewart will be starting up her wrestling club soon. Practices will be on Monday and Wednesdays (conflicting with Choir), beginning later this month. More news to come on this.

  1. Fundraising- In order to help support field trips and other opportunities for students, the school will begin to do small fundraisers each Friday.  We will keep the cost to no more than $2. This week’s fundraiser. This week’s fundraiser will be popsicles for $1 each.

  1. Tutoring- Beginning next Wednesday (January 16th) Elm Street School will begin to offer afters school tutoring each Wednesday, from 2:45-3:45.  Tutors will be Education students from Medicine Hat College. Again, unfortunately, we are not able to offer transportation after tutoring. If you would like your child to receive some extra help with reading, or any other learning, please sign the consent form that is being sent home today as well.

  1. Skating-  Elm Street School students continue to go skating in January. For individual class schedules, who skates when, please refer to the yellow schedule that sent home prior to the break. Dates have also been updated on our school website calendar as well.
  1. Medicine Hat Tigers visit- The Medicine Hat Tigers will be visiting Elm Street School on January 14th. They will talking with Grades 4-6 students about setting goals and dreaming big.

  1. Student Pick-up-  In that Elm Street School accounts for students taking buses each day, we would appreciate it if parents who pick up students, who normally would take the bus,  please let the office know when this happens.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.

All the best in January!
