Over 100 grandparents arrived at Elgin Elementary School today to enjoy some activities with their grandchild. The day included Bingo, a creative craft center, a photo with a "classic" car, some reading, and a nutritious lunch! The elementary teachers paired up to run an event and Principal Wemhoff coordinated the festivities! What a great day for the students and the grandparents!
Please enjoy a few photos that were taken throughout the day!
The Elgin Public Art students attended the NVC art show hosted by Boyd County at Spencer. We traveled up to Spencer Thursday, April 27th to hang the show which was judged in the afternoon and open to the public that evening. We returned on Friday to view the results and participate in an art activity. Joan Swim the Art teacher from Valentine gave a presentation on caricature drawing and had all students participate by creating their own caricature from a photograph of a celebrity. The students did an amazing job on their drawings.
After lunch students gathered for the judge's presentation. Host Sherry Black read the judges' comments to the students on how to improve their work for next year. The Judge's Merit award winners also talked to the students about their work and the thought process that went into it. The work was taken down for the long journey back home to Elgin.
EHS students earned a total of 32 ribbons, that included two Judge's merit awards.

On Saturday, April 29th, EPS Cadet Band students attended the Neligh-Oakdale Honor Band in Neligh. Rehearsals started at 10:00 and culminated in a concert at 4:30. All three groups- 5th Grade Band, 6th Grade Band, and Percussion Ensemble, did a tremendous job! Both bands played five selections, and the percussion ensemble performed three. With over 200 students in each ensemble, and 400 students overall, it was an amazing opportunity for our students to be able to attend this honor band. Everyone worked hard, and the concert was great!
Our upcoming music performances include Graduation, Elementary Spring Concert, and Memorial Day. Graduation will feature the choir, the Elementary concert will feature all students grades K-6, including PK-1 singers, 4th grade recorders, 5th and 6th grade bands, and the Mini Musical Let's Eat! with grades 2-6. Memorial Day will feature the band at both local cemeteries to honor our veteran's.
I want to send a huge thank you to all of the school board members, administrators, teachers, and parents that help to make these opportunities possible. Without your support, our music program here at Elgin would not be anything close to what it is, and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I believe that studying music is one of the best lifelong pursuits that any person can make, and with your help that tradition of great music at Elgin will continue.
- Mr. Heithoff
