Message from the Principal

Please send your child/ren to school with extra socks or clothes.  Many are getting wet and require a change of clothes to make it through the day.  We have some extra indoor (socks and shirts) and outdoor (mittens, hats, snow pants) clothes for emergencies.
Report cards will be sent home with your child on Friday, February 23 .  The report cards are an opportunity for your child(ren)’s teacher(s) to let you know, in more detail, how he/she is doing.  If you have any questions about your child’s report, don’t hesitate to set up an appointment with the teacher.  We all work together to ensure the success of each child.  You are an important part of the equation.
The character trait for this month is bravery.  On Wednesday, February 14, we will be having our monthly spirit day.  Students are asked to wear pink, red and white.  
Our school Valentine fundraiser consists of selling chocolate hearts or lollipops at $0.50 each.  The hearts and lollipops will be sold on Monday, February 12 to Wednesday, February 14.  Students will be given the item immediately so that they can deliver it to their Valentine.  All funds will go to support school projects.
Students in our junior and intermediate classes are preparing for our school’s Concours which will take place on Wednesday, February 28 at 9 am.  You are all invited to attend.  In this speech competition, students will be given a picture ten minutes before standing up in front of the audience.  They will then have this time to come up with a discussion/description of the picture which they will then provide to the audience.  This will test our students’ abilities to speak French in an impromptu manner (not memorized French).  Students will not have the opportunity to use a dictionary to prepare nor will they be able to create a script.  They can, however, make note of a few key words which they can take up with them to speak.  Junior students have a time limit of two minutes while our intermediate students have a limit of three minutes.  We wish all of our students the best of luck as they prepare for the School Concours.  Please take a look at the attached calendar to see some of the exciting things planned for the month of February.  It will definitely be a busy month!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns regarding life at Ecole Elgin Market, please don’t hesitate to contact me at:  (519) 396-8115.  

Marga Wilson, Principal
