FROM THE PRINCIPAL: This year has gone by so quickly! Our focus for the month of June is “Believe in Yourself”- be positive and motivated to finish this last important few days left on a high note. We are still writing assessments in different classes across the school so it is important to be on time. We have many exciting events coming up this month to celebrate our successful school year: field trips, outdoor education events, the year-end awards ceremony and Grade 6 graduation. I want to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful staff for their hard work and dedication to our students throughout the year. As well, thank you to parents! You are a wonderful group of people who have raised some amazing kids that we love working with everyday. Many of you also take time out of your busy schedules to volunteer for activities, field trips and tasks around the school. We appreciate this support and couldn’t run without your help. Wishing you all a very happy and safe summer!
