At the end of each week, I will email home a "Weekly Update" for parents/guardians to see what is coming up.
Posted on May 5th, 2019
Although the weather has been behaving as if it were still winter, April has come and gone. We are all looking forward to some sunshine. We realize that the next few months will fly by. Even though spring is in the air, focus on your child’s academic, social and emotional growth will continue to be our focus until the end of June.
We are well into the planning stages for the 2019-2020 school year. We will be sharing information as soon as we have things finalized.
As always if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to give us a call.
Working with you,
Mme Garneau & Mme Boswell

Little Elk Island Adventure: Registration
Elk Island Public Schools is once again running Little Elk Island Adventure, a fun and informative program for first-time school bus riders.
Annually, Student Transportation offers the Little Elk Island Adventure to new riders and their parents. The program’s aim is to help ease any anxieties a family may have about riding the bus before even starting school. Through a series of activities, riders learn about: school bus safety, danger zones, tips on boarding and how to sit properly on the bus. After that, both the children and parents hop on the bus to practice what they’ve learned and then venture out on a short ride.
The Little Elk Island Adventure is for first-time school bus riders entering the 2019-20 school year. Sessions and times are available at these locations:
