Welcome to Elboya School
for the 2016-17 school year

Shave Your Lid for a Kid

 

We have 73 students, 9 staff members and 2 parents participating in the Shave Your Lid Fundraiser. Participation includes shaving hair, cutting and donating ponytails and/or collecting donations!  

 

As a group we have set a goal to raise $75,000, which is ambitious considering the current economy in Calgary. So far, Elboya has raised a total of $24,664 for Kids Cancer Care. Way to go Elboya! Shave Day Assemblies will be held in the Main Gym on Friday, April 21st!

 

Thank you very much to the staff, students and members of our community for helping the Kids Cancer Care provide opportunities to students and families impacted.
