With the upcoming new semester, those planning for dual enrollment might want to consider doing it soon. The final opportunity to sign up for classes is January 17th.  It would be better to go in to sign up for classes though, because many people will decide to do it last minute. The admissions office for Cameron University is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Information for signing for undergraduate admissions will be available on the Cameron website.

Elgin Takes Putnam City

On December 10th/11th, The Elgin Wrestling team went out to the Putnam City Invitational Tournament. The guys weren’t there to mess around, as all of them placed very well in their weight brackets, including three Champions: Jon Solis (126), Jacob Butler (132), and Isaac Garrett (195). The boys took the adversity  they faced and moved forward to win the overall tournament, with a 0ver all team score of 223 points, the Elgin Wrestlers dominated Putnam as the second highest score was only 163, which belonged to Copell. With the boys bringing home the trophy, their morale is heightened as they move forward in the season. The future looks bright for 2016/17 season

December 2016 4th Grade Musical

 

On December 15th, 2016, the 4th graders at Elgin Elementary School helped spread holiday cheer, by performing a musical for their parents and fellow students; just in time for the holidays.

The performers surprised the audience with a modern style of Christmas carols, leaving behind the more traditional carols you may be used to. This change is welcomed, however, as these songs were a refreshing change to the songs we’ve all heard a hundred times, year after year.
