Weekly Update | Sept. 8, 2017

 

Fall has arrived and with it some exciting events coming up at Elboya School. A yearly calendar of all major events has been posted in our calendar.

 

There is no school on Friday, Sep. 22 this upcoming week due to Parent Teacher Conferences and that Thursday, Sep. 21 will have an early dismissal at 1:30 PM. All early dismissals are posted on the 2017-2018 Calendar.

We will be holding our Parent-Teacher Conferences on Thursday, Sep. 21 from 4:00 pm till 8:00 pm and Friday, Sep. 22 from 9:00 AM till 1:00 PM. This is a chance to come to meet your child’s teacher and have a quick conversation.

 

Terry Fox Day (all grades)
Wednesday Sep. 20th, we are having our annual Terry Fox day and run! We will start off with different homeroom activities, followed by an assembly and neighborhood run. The afternoon will be a celebration of why your child runs for Terry. Please ensure your student wears sunscreen that day, has a water bottle and wears comfortable clothing. Our school wears red in support of each other and Terry!

Starting on Wednesday September 13th we started collecting toonies for Terry as a fundraiser in support of the Terry Fox Foundation and cancer research. Students in all grades are welcome to bring monetary donations to homeroom. Please give generously if you can!

 

 

 

CPAWS Southern Alberta Gareth Thomson Award

 

Grade 8 students at Elboya School have received the 2017 Gareth Thomson Award from the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society for the most inspiring action project done by a group. Students were asked to create a Science project focusing on protecting watersheds during the Fresh and Saltwater Systems unit. Projects ranged from awareness campaigns using brochures, videos and social media, to letters written to local government, and fundraisers. As part of their prize, students completed a workshop with bee researchers from the University of Calgary and built bee hotels to take home. The school was also given a composter donated by the City of Calgary, and all Grade 8 students received coupons from Fiasco Gelato. Congratulations on a job well done!
