Last Week of School!

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

~ Nelson Mandela ~

Where did this year go!? It's amazing how these past 10 months have gone by so quickly and that we are at the end of another school year. This year was full of so many wonderful learning opportunities for students mixed in with lots of fun events that make Southview such an amazing place to grow and learn! We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our families for their ongoing support. Final report cards will be sent home this Wednesday along with a tentative list of our classroom organization for September. Please note that there could be changes to this organization over the summer and into the first few weeks of September depending on actual enrolment numbers which means that your child's class placement is subject to change. As always, we hope not to have to make changes as we have spent many weeks considering the best placement option for each student moving into next school year. If you have any questions about your child's report card, please feel free to contact your child's teacher.

We wish all of our families a fun-filled summer full of laughter with family and friends and we look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, September 4th!

Congratulations Graduates!

If you are interested in joining Parent Council or just want to help out occasionally, please consider joining us at our first meeting on Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 at 6:30 pm in the Library.
