Grade 4 Farewell

As we bid our Grade 4 class farewell we are confident that they are well prepared for the next part of their journey and more than ready to "Go make a difference in the world!" We are grateful for your time with us. Blessings to you all.

Library & Classroom Materials/ Teacher Gifts

As our school year draws to a close please return all library and classroom materials to the school. We appreciate your support and cooperation - thank you!

Also, as a staff, we have discussed the possibility of year end gifts being either donations to help those in Fort McMurray, or donations to Families First society in Fort Saskatchewan. Families first is always looking for small gift cards. If you are thinking of year end gift for a staff member, please consider giving a small gift card that can be passed on to charity. As always, your generosity is appreciated.

Lost and Found

Once again our Lost and Found bins are exploding with clothing, water bottles, jackets, toys . . . Please stop by and collect any missing items from your household. Thanks!

Kindergarten Celebrations

What a busy few days for our ECS students. This past week they had the opportunity to check out the Grade 1 classrooms (these kids are ready!), celebrate dads (and uncles and grandpas) at the annual Fudge Night, and have a blast at the Crazy Camel Carnival. On Monday they will have their year end celebration, with their last day of classes on Tuesday.
