Welcome Back Everyone!! Bienvenue à tous!!
We hope you all had a restful March break and are ready to get back to school tomorrow. This week at Elm Street we will be celebrating French week/semaine française. Each day we will be celebrating a different part of Acadian history and culture.
Lundi/Monday – Nova Scotia Day
Mardi/Tuesday – New Brunswick Day
Mercredi/Wednesday – Acadian diaspora day (land without borders)
Jeudi/Thursday – Maple Sugar Shack Day (wear plaid)
Vendredi/Friday – PEI Day (wear blue, white, red and yellow)
It will be held on 16 April from 13:00-15:00 at NewLife Center, 201 Water Street, Summerside. The objectives of this activity are introducing a different culture through Beyblade games; providing a chance for kids to meet more friends with the same interest; and helping them establish a healthy mindset through fun and engaging activity.

March 8-12Dear Parents/ GuardiansIt is hard to believe that this is the final week before our March Break, and we look forward to seeing all the children ready and eager to learn on Monday morning. I understand that last week was very unsettling for many Islanders with the entire province being in the Red Zone for 72 hours. That being said, schools are open, and I assure you that at Elm Street we have a solid COVID plan in place with sanitizing, mask wearing, social distancing and small cohorts to keep everyone safe. This week we are having two dress up days:
On Tuesday, we are having a Jersey Day in support of one of our own families, whose home and contents were damaged due to an electrical fire. If you would like to participate, we will be collecting monetary donations for this family on this day. Thank you in advance for your support
.On Friday, March 12, we will be celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day early by wearing green. Students feel free to be creative today in your attire and show your Irish spirit!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher or to Mrs. Reeves at firstname.lastname@example.org ,or Mrs. Doyle at email@example.com or 902-888-8490.Thank- youJacqueline Reeves & Janice Doyle
