Some of these programs include dance classes, piano lessons, gymnastics, cartooning, ballet and drama classes. Programming is halted during the summer when the Elms summer camp program begins. Every year in June The Elms Community School hosts an annual "Fun Day" where neighbourhood residents come together to enjoy games, a garage sale, entertainment and a barbecue.
