The months of May and June are hardly slow. While trying to complete the day-to-day and year-end tasks, we are busy planning for next year.


  1. Congratulations to our grade 7’s who performed very well at their first festival in Winnipeg on April 27.
  2. Thanks to all parents (and students) who came to the Showcase of Learning evening. The goal of the evening was to have parents connect with our school and find out a bit more about what their child is learning. Each year we get more families out and the feedback received has been very positive. Please make plans to attend next year.
  3. Individual classes continue to volunteer at The Salvation Army. The organization has been so appreciative of our help. 8B will be going on Friday, May 5.
