One hand can make a difference.

Join hands with the Elgin Community Library as they raise money for their new LARGER facility located at 108 Thoma Drive.  To help with the costs of remodeling and the needs of a larger facility, members of the Elgin community are invited to cover their hand with either blue, red, orange, purple, or green glaze and make a handprint on a ceramic tile.

Each tile costs $20 and will have your handprint and first name on it.  The tiles will be mounted on a wall in the new library.  Elgin Public Schools Superintendent, Nate Meraz, has given Ruth Crittendon, EHS Art Teacher, permission to fire the tiles for the fundraiser.

Schedule a time to make your handprint tile by calling Librarian Leslie Durham at (580)492-6650


4th grade performance

Dear Parents,

4th graders have been working very hard this semester on what they have learned in music and learning to play the recorder.  During Rise and Shines in the Fine Art´s Center, Monday May 7th, they will be performing two songs they have learned for the school!

There are two Rise and Shines, one at 8:30 a.m. and again at 9:10 a.m.  They will be performing both, so you have two opportunities to choose from.

If your student has lost their recorder, a replacement may be purchased for $6 (exact change only please!)

Students without a recorder will not play in the Rise and Shines.

Come out and see what they have learned!
