The Solar Eclipse is coming next Monday, 4/8/24. Peak viewing for the solar eclipse will be at 3:15pm. We urge parents to educate your children about safe viewing practices, including the use of certified solar viewing glasses or pinhole projectors. Thank you to our local library for providing solar eclipse glasses to all of our students. Extra eclipse glasses may be picked up at the local library. Supervision of younger children during the eclipse is advised. Remember, not looking directly at the solar eclipse is best practice just like we don’t look directly at the sun.

Due to today's school cancellation, Drummond Island Elementary Student-Led Conferences will be held on Tuesday, March 5th. We would like to invite families to come in at 2:00 and celebrate Dr. Seuss' Birthday by reading with their student(s) and then having an ice cream sundae party. Immediately following, families can participate in our Student-Led Conferences. If this time does not work for your family, you can contact your child's teacher to make an alternate plan. This would be in place of the originally scheduled plan. Please feel free to share.

Designs coming to life! Anne and Fred Guith asked Mrs. Moser and Mrs. Geyer's classes to design their own unique stocking hats. So they did! Each student made a colorful drawing of a personalized stocking hat. Anne and Fred took each drawing and knitted the exact designs for the students. What a cool idea. A very special thank you to Anne and Fred Guith for making this happen.
