Field Trips and Fun!

Dear Families,

Thank you of a wonderful year full of learning, support and fun. This week was a great example of how our school and community come together to make great things happen.

We we so proud of our Grade 8 students who graduated on Wednesday. It was a beautiful in-school ceremony followed by a limo ride to escape room fun. More than anything we are proud of the amazing young people that our community has raised. We know they will continue on to great things, take new risks in learning; and to lead with kindness and integrity.

The rest of the school also got to join in the fun on Thursday and Friday this week with every class participating in a year end field trip! Thank you to our school council and Bingo volunteers for funding these memorable experiences.

Although changes are always possible. This is what our school organization will look like next fall. For most students, only one class placement is possible , but we are happy to share tentative placements with our Grade 4 students and will include this tentative informaiton with their report cards on Tuesday.

Next Year's School Organization:

Kindergarten: Amy Ford & Natasha Vankoughnett

Grade 1 / 2: Joclynn Irwin
