Happy New Year!
The faculty and staff of Elk Garden Primary School would like to extend to the Elk Garden Community our wishes for a happy and prosperous 2017!

How is Your Child Doing In Accelerated Math / Accelerated Reading?
Did you know that you can track your child’s progress in Accelerated Math and Accelerated Reading?  Not only that, but your child can take Practice Tests in Accelerated Math at home to help them prepare for their Accelerated Math Tests!  Take advantage of this opportunity.  To log in, simply go to:  enter your child’s 9 digit ID, the password is AR .  That’s all there is to it.  Help your child succeed.

We will be taking the children who achieve their second goal by January 23rd on a special field trip to Blackwater Falls for a day of sled riding and pizza.  The details still need to be worked out.

Congratulations to Mrs. Ashby’s 3rd grade class.  So far they have won all three attendance competitions for the year.  Will they be defeated?

Did You Know?
We are on a mission and would like for the Elk Garden community to join us.  It takes a community to raise a child.  We want to make sure that every child who passes through the doors of our school achieve at a high level!  We believe it can be done but it will take all of us; teachers, aides, cooks, custodians, children, parents, grandparents and significant others within the lives of the children.
