Last Message of the Year

Dear Magnetic Hill Families

This is the last Sunday message of the year. Our school year will come to an end this coming Friday at 11:30 with bus pick up. Friday is a ½ day for students.

The Home and School BBQ is on THURSDAY. I am resending the notice as an attachment in our parent email. Please note the typo for orders. The event is THURSDAY and orders need to be sent before the end of the day on Wednesday so we can plan accordingly.

The cafeteria and breakfast club are finished for the year. Thank you to our loyal and incredible parent volunteers who helped out this with the program. Your support is greatly appreciated. Thank you to Mrs. Gass our cafeteria manager for all of her hard work and effort on behalf of our students.

Students will need to bring a lunch this week as there is no cafeteria service. We will be selling some items such as freezies and ice pops at recess and noon hour on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Please check your child’s agenda as we have several outings scheduled for this week including Resurgo Place, Bowling and Swimming depending on the team.

We have about 20 year book left for purchase in the office for $20. First come, first served.

Happy Father’s Day!

Mr. Smith
