Just a reminder that today is a half day due to the Primary having their fun day in the morning.
Yesterday’s Pirate Day was a huge success! Thank yo to the parents who came out to help! The kids had a lot of fun and did many fun and strange things in pursuit of that elusive treasure! As a result, the students earned the rest of their stars for the class party, which will be Thursday afternoon. If you could please send some kind of party treats with your child on Thursday, that would be appreciated.
Just a reminder of our waterslides fieldtrip tomorrow. We will be leaving the school at 9:00 and returning at 3:30. Students going on the bus can meet in the front foyer of the school.
If you are planning on meeting us there, please wait at the main gate for us. Parents and siblings 4 and under who wish to come along may pay $10 at the park. In order to respect our grade specific fieldtrips, please do not pull other school age children from class to go to the waterslides. In bathing suit selection, please refer to our non-uniform standard (p3). Please err on the side of modesty to help make staff, parents and students feel comfortable. In the event that a child’s bathing suit does not meet these standards, they may be asked to wear a t – shirt.
You should also bring the following:
- lunch/lunch money
- change of clothing
Looking forward to a fun day.
Just a reminder that tomorrow is our Grades 4-6 fun day. It is a half day for students and, as such, will be dismissed at 12:00. Students are allowed to dress casual with their team colour, which should be written in their planner.
Next Tuesday will be our last day with Mrs. Ediger and we thought we would celebrate by having a Pirate Day. On Tuesday, students can dress up as pirates. In the afternoon, we will be doing a Pirate Treasure Hunt. To help with the treasure hunt, we are looking for parent volunteers to help us out. We need 5 parents willing to embark on an exciting treasure hunt with the students. Please let me know if you would be available. It would go from about 1:00 to 2:55. All directions and information will be provided.
In the meantime, enjoy this video!

Thanks to all of you who came out to the Art Gala last Thursday. It was a wonderful event showcasing the wonderful talent we have in the intermediate department. The addition of the talent show was a huge success and we will definitely continue with that aspect next year!

Here is the memory verse for the week:
and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
I hope everyone had a great long weekend. We were in Seattle enjoying the Science Museum and the Zoo and had a fabulous time. Luckily the border lineups were long but moved very quickly.
I just wanted to remind everyone of the fieldtrip tomorrow with the early start of 8:15. We will hopefully not be back too late. I am anticipating being back sometime around 4. I will try to call the school to update them on our progress on the way back. Students will also need to bring a packed lunch. They can bring something to do on the bus but no electronics, please.
Also this week will be the second annual Art Gala with the addition of our Talent Show. Here is a note from Mrs. Causton, who is helping Ms. Warden out with the preparation of food items.
