Thank You!

June 30th, 2017

Rose and I are now finished for the summer! We want to say a great big thank you for your support this year. Education is a partnership between school and home and it has been a pleasure partnering with you and your children. Thank you so much for the gifts, cards and encouraging words. It means so much at the end of the year when students and teachers are so tired. I pray that your summer is full of family fun and that many great memories are made. I look forward to seeing you in the halls next year!

Backpacks please!

June 23rd, 2017

Just a reminder to bring a backpack today as we will clean out our lockers and desks and bring the rest of our work home today!

I can’t believe that it is our last day together. It is a half day and we will be dismissing at noon.

Have a fabulous summer! See you next year!

Happy Father’s Day to all of the amazing and hard – working Fathers out there! We baked up a storm for you. We ate a few too!

Dairy Farm Field Trip

June 16th, 2017

Our excitement for visiting the farm was not dampened by the rain! Everyone enjoyed the tour of the milking parlour, calf “igloos” and different pen areas for the cows. We learned about the science/technology behind managing 750 dairy cows. A huge thank you to the Boer family who took the time to show us around the farm, but also shared ice-cream treats with everyone and sent the children home with a goodie bag and activity book. It was a great learning experience!

Grade One Water Filter Project

June 15th, 2017

As you may remember, earlier on in the school year, you helped the children fundraise to purchase a water filter to benefit children in need of clean water in the Philippines. We recently received word that an Elementary school had been chosen to be the site for the new filter. Here are a few pictures that are sure to bring joy to your heart. It is amazing that such a small amount can impact so many lives. Thank you for your generosity!
