Jump Rope For Heart


Our fundraising totals have recently been finalized for our 2018 Jump Rope for Heart campaign at Elboya School. In total, with online and offline donations, 61 Elboya students, Grade 1 to Grade 9, were able to raise a total of $11,033.20, which surpassed our goal! Thank you to all who participated to help us reach our goal.

A special thank you to Ms. Bly's Grade 5/6 homeroom, which raised the most money for a homeroom! Also, a special thank you goes out to our top three fundraisers in the school; Brasen C. (Grade 7), Ms. Bly and Claudia H. (Grade 4). 


First Tech Challenge Alberta Championship

The weekend of January 27 was spent in Edmonton with eight Grade 8s and their parents at the Telus World of Science. We brought our Robot (Matrix 77) to compete in the First Tech Challenge Alberta Championship. We had some serious issues to overcome. They had to utilize teamwork, perseverance and the willingness to continue to try to solve problems right till the end. All the setbacks they encountered this year are things that all of those other teams had to overcome in their first few years as well, they are well on their way to growing into a very strong robotics team, I hope many of them are able to join the program again next year. It truly was the hardest fun they ever had!


CPAWS Southern Alberta Gareth Thomson Award

  

The Elboya Grade 8 students received the 2017 Gareth Thomson Award from the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society for the most inspiring action project done by a group. 

The Gareth Thomson Award is for secondary students that take on the most inspiring action project. The Grade 8 students at Elboya School identified and researched water management issues; decided on effective, sustainable, and feasible solutions; planned an effective course of action; and put their plan into action. Projects included awareness campaigns using posters, brochures, videos and social media; letters written to members of the local government; fundraising; and community cleanups. They received a presentation from University of Calgary bee researchers and a celebration party as part of their prize.

Congratulations to all Grade 8 students!
