ELMLE - The Musical: Find your Part

Great news! Registration for the #ELMLELondon conference is now OPEN! Learn more about the Pre-Conference Sessions, Featured Speakers, and Hotel and Travel Information at the links.

Join us in spectacular London Town for our 38th annual conference January 25-27, 2024. This year we’ll go all in for ELMLE - The Musical! Our theme speaks to the idea that each of us plays an important role at our schools; we each bring particular strengths, and we want to explore the many ways an ensemble comes together to bring the opus that is “the middle school experience” to life.  We know that part of the magic of middle school is that it’s a place where we belong, and it takes all of us to make the production work. Come and be part of the ELMLE cast and crew as we explore our creative, collaborative, and technical roles -- essential elements of the big show! Let’s continue our professional learning around supporting our students and fostering the ultimate middle school experience!

The votes are in, and the winning logo designers for our #ELMLELondon conference are Jaxon Batty and Jill Geib, two 6th graders at Frankfurt International School. They'll receive an Amazon gift certificate (and eternal fame)! Their nominated teacher will receive a complimentary Pre-Conference registration to #ELMLELondon.

In this real-world learning experience, students were asked to include the theme of the conference, as well as a visual representation of London, our host city. As part of the design brief, they were provided with the HEX codes for the ELMLE colors and a vector copy of the official ELMLE logo to incorporate into the design. The ELMLE Steering Committee received more than 45 entries!
