Projects and Successes

Supplemental Arts Program

Parent council provided about $260 per class in supplemental arts supplies. Here is some of what was created. (Winter 2018)

The arts program is a unique program funded by the parent council and offered to all students from JK to grade six. The curriculum is chosen by the teachers, who are responsible for assessment and for ongoing observation of student progress, making it essential that the workshops are selected to introduce and reinforce an interactive learning opportunity for students in the arts.

Below is the draft of the 2017-2018 arts program

WHOLE SCHOOL PERFORMANCES

Nanabush and the Ducks

Nanabush and the Ducks is an engaging interactive puppet theatre production based on an old Ojibway tale in which a wellloved “trickster” tries to catch a flock of tasty ducks for dinner… but learns some important lessons along the way.

Mehdi Cayenne

Mehdi’s light-hearted performances blend song and spoken word, in an inclusive, fiery and eclectic hijinx that leaves students of all ages amazed and inspired.

OUTREACH DANCE WORKSHOP OFFERED THROUGH THE ROYAL WINNIPEG BALLET

Junkyard Symphony



Hip Hop Dance!

A portion of funds were used to invite a Hip Hop dance instructor into the school. Let’s see those moves! (Winter 2018)

Bike Racks!

You may have noticed that the school has some beautiful new bike racks. More than a few people on Parent Council have tried to procure new bike racks for Elgin Street Public School – and finally, in late November, after much perseverance, changes in suppliers, and ultimately a bit of good luck and strong leadership the new bike racks were delivered! (Fall 2017)

The significantly discounted racks were paid for by a combination of existing Parent Council Funds and a donation from the Jack Purcell community center.

We hope that these racks can be used by generations of Elgin School families.
