Opportunities for your child to get involved
For more than 50 years, the District 279 Children's Chorus has provided a high quality vocal music experience for elementary students, as well as extraordinary performances for the community. District 279 Chorus members demonstrate high vocal music skills relative to others of their age, experience or environment.
The chorus has approximately 100 members representing all of the elementary schools in our district. Every fall, students in grades 4 and 5 may audition to join the chorus.
Elm Creek TV provides news, announcements and updates to our school community. Students help write, produce and deliver the news each day.
Students in fifth grade can participate in the school band or orchestra. Lessons begin in October each year and students are expected to practice 4-5 times per week on their own.
Fuel Up to Play 60 is a schoolwide nutrition and physical activity program launched by the National Dairy Council and National Football League, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
