Staffing Changes
Angela Devitt has accepted Kaitlyn Makin-Peters position.  She will be working at Elgin Market on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for the remainder of the year.

Concours Elgin Market
We had a wonderful competition at Elgin Market.  Our students rose to the challenge of speaking in French for two minutes without much time to prepare.  The four students who will be moving on to compete at the Bluewater Concours Oratoire are:  Julianna Rutledge and Morgan Talbot (Intermediate students) and Alyssa Bale and Avery Chilton (Junior students).  Our runners-up were Arielle Brouwer (Intermediate) and Brenna Hegmans (Junior).  

Chocolate Easter Eggs
We will be selling chocolate Easter eggs (small ones) during the week before Easter to raise money for various school activities.

Elgin Market Science Fair
Tomorrow, Tuesday, March 20, there will be a school science fair taking place in the gym from 11:45 am to 1 pm.  All parents are invited to attend.  Judges will be present to choose the projects which will move on to the District Science Fair competition.
