Message from the Principal


Dear Parents and Guardians,

Another school year is coming to a close.  It has been one filled with many learning opportunities for both staff and students.  It has truly been a pleasure working with you and your children.  We hope that you have the chance this summer to slow down and enjoy the time with family and friends before another busy school year begins.
We are in the process of creating classes for next year.  Due to fluctuations in enrollment, we will not be announcing your child’s teacher until the first day of school.  If you have any concerns, please don’t hesitate to come in and see me.  
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the volunteers who help to make Elgin Market such a wonderful place to learn and work.  We couldn’t do all the activities we do without your help.  We hope you take the time to come and have breakfast with us on at Tuesday, June 20 at 7:45 am to allow us, in a small way, to show you our gratitude.  
There are still many activities planned before the school year is over such as Track & Field, our Spring Concert, and Grade 8 transition to high school and Graduation.  Some classes will be going on field trips.
This Monday, June 12, our Home & School organization is holding a Health and Wellness Fair at the school from 6 to 8 pm.  Consider coming to visit to learn more about nutrition, dental hygiene, yoga and other health and wellness topics.  There will be school water bottles for sale and an opportunity to make healthy school lunches and snacks.  It promises to be both an informative and fun evening!
Final report cards will be sent home with students on Tuesday, June 27.  If you have any questions, you can reach your child’s teacher until the end of the day on Friday, June 30.
This past month, we had the performance of our musical, A Kids Life..  There was a great audience for a thoroughly entertaining show!  Thanks to all who donated to our school’s music program at the event.  We raised $751.61.  This will help us to fix some of our instruments and buy new music; perhaps for a new musical.
As the weather seems to switch dramatically from one day to the next, please ensure that your child comes to school with a sweater and sun screen.  This will help in keeping your child comfortable.
Our school and Home & School organization applied and will be receiving $1000 from the Society of Energy Professionals Bruce Power Local Community Foundations Fund.  This money will be used to start an Archery program at Elgin Market this fall.  We are all very excited about this.
If you find yourself coming to the school to pick up your child, please pass by the Lost and Found.  It is very full of clothing which needs to find its way home before the end of the year.  
Wishing you all a wonderful summer holiday when it comes!   We look forward to welcoming everyone and our new Junior Kindergarten students back on Tuesday, September 5.  A special congratulations goes out to our graduating class (see the picture below).  They have been true trail blazers.  We wish them the best of luck next year at KDSS.



Marga Wilson, Principal
