Dear Parents/Guardians,

This is the final monthly newsletter for the 2017-2018 school year. Some special events have been planned for the students during the month of June including a special NIGHT OF THE ARTS on Tuesday June 5th. (See dates and activities listed above).



NIGHT OF THE ARTS – TUESDAY, JUNE 5th.   Parents and the community are invited to a celebration of the arts including a drama presentation, “STONE SOUP”. (The format is much like the Christmas concert….all students are involved, including Sistema).  Prior to the Drama performance at 1pm and 7pm, you are invited to view art/projects done by the students. 

Please have students at the school by 6:45pm.  Thank you and hope to see you on the 5th.



Please remember that flip flops are not appropriate outdoor footwear at school, even during nice weather.  The play area is uneven in places and we often use the field for outdoor gym classes where shoes with support are needed. Thank you.

Some preparations have started for the next school year.  With this often comes questions about what classrooms students will be in next year.  We are unable to confirm the specific classrooms and teachers for students next year as changes continue to take place over the summer. Class lists with homeroom teachers will be posted on the first day of school.

With summer just around the corner, we want to encourage students to keep up their literacy and numeracy skills. A good way to do this is to visit our local library.


We want to take this opportunity to thank all our families for their continued support and wish you a safe and enjoyable summer. We look forward to seeing our returning students in September and wish our grade 5 students a great new journey into middle school.
