Elboya House System

In the Elboya House System the school population (K-9) is divided into four major houses, each of which accumulates points over the school year by participating in various athletic, intramural, and community service activities. Each house has its own color and bird of prey.

Goals of the House System

  • To create and maintain a sense of community between grades and programs
  • To organize programs that allow maximum and meaningful participation
  • To create a better learning environment for both students and teachers
  • To promote a program fostering and maintaining a person's positive self-image
  • To promote fun and school spirit in the student body
  • To provide meaningful representation of students' interests.

Elboya House System Activities

  • Are age appropriate
  • Include (but not limited to) Spirit Days such as Halloween and Wacky Hair Days, Intramurals, Fun/Sports, L & L assemblies, Elboyan Idol, etc.
  • Allocate house points through participation

Student Participation
Each student should choose an activity or activities that they enjoy and commit to participation. It makes school much more fun.

Intramurals
Students are encouraged to participate in the lunch hour intramural program. Activities are designed for fun and enjoyment, as well as an opportunity to develop school spirit. House points are awarded primarily for participation.

School Athletics Policy
Athletics are offered to students in Grade 6-9, a decision of the CBE based on the range of student able to safely play with each other. Elboya offers to all students the opportunity to participate in a strong and varied athletic program. Our goals are to help students develop the skills, abilities, attitudes, and sportsmanship through competitive programming
