Year in Review

Dear Parents.

I hope you all have a great Summer! I'd like to thank all of you for everything you did for me, our school and of course our children.

I made an end of the year slideshow that I showed the children today and I wanted to pass it along to you. It has a lot of our good memories of Grade Two.

This video might only play on a computer or laptop. I'm not sure if it will work on a phone or tablet. It includes sound.

The video below hopefully will play on a phone or tablet. There is no sound.

Final Day

Dear Parents,
I wanted to thank everyone who was able to contribute toward our Good Shepherd Celebration today. The food was tremendous and the students were able to eat so many different kinds of things. I don't know how many will be able to eat dinner tonight. :)

I'd also like to thank everyone for the birthday cake and wishes. As well as the present. It was so generous. Very thoughtful. 

Tomorrow is the last day of school. School will end at 12:15pm. report cards will be going home at the end of the day as well. If anyone is sick and unable to pick up the report card, they will be in the office for the next week. We have Mass and Assembly tomorrow. All parents are welcome to join the school.

I will have one more post tomorrow. I think it will be something fun to end the year.

Good Shepherd Celebration

Our Good Shepherd Celebration takes place tomorrow from about 12:30pm. Thanks again to all parents who were able to contribute toward the potluck lunch.
Students do not need to bring a lunch tomorrow as we will have all that wonderful food and drink.
They still need a snack in the morning.

With only 2 days left, we have lots to bring home. We've been bringing a few things every day and a few more things tomorrow. On Friday, if students could bring a few bags. Just shopping bags would be fine. I know some classes ask for garbage bags, but I don't think we have that much stuff.

Last Week!

Dear Parents,

We have a busy week this last week of school.

Tomorrow (Monday) we have our 50 word Spelling Test. It was scheduled for last Friday, but with the Talent Show and Father's Day card, we had to move it to this Monday.
There is also the Award Ceremony tomorrow. I believe at 9:30. All parents are welcome to join us. Most awards are for Grade 7's and intermediates, but I believe there are choir awards for some of us.

Wednesday, June 24th is Early Dismissal. School will end at 12:15pm. 

Thursday is our Good Shepherd Celebration. It will begin around 12:30ish. Thanks again to everyone who has signed up to bring food. If we all come together, it should be a fantastic way to end the year. I hope many of you are able to join us. 

Friday is the last day of school. It will be a busy day. We have Mass and then a end of the year Assembly and then try to pack up everything that goes home. Dismissal will be at 12:15pm.

It's been a great year. Hard to believe it's almost at an end, but let's enjoy our last week.

Last 2 weeks

Thank you to all the parents who were able to join our class on the field trip today. 

We have a Math test this Thursday. It's just a review of Unit 5 which is addition and subtraction to 100.

The talent show is this Friday at 1:00pm. All parents are welcome to attend. I don't yet know the participants, but I assume that information will be posted very soon.

Next Monday, we will be having our Awards Assembly. More information will be sent home soon.

Reminder that next Wednesday is early dismissal. School will end at 12:15pm. Thursday is a regular day and Friday is the last day of school and will finish at 12:15pm as well.

Thursday is our Good Shepherd Celebration. Thank you to everyone who has already signed up to bring food to our potluck. We are lucky to have so many items already. If you have not yet signed up to bring something, please contract myself or Jane's Mom. All parents and family are invited to join us for our special celebration.

Field Trip

Permission Forms for our Field Trip will go home tomorrow. We've been waiting for bus confirmation. Unfortunately, last Friday, the office told me that while we have a bus, it is only medium size as a larger bus was above our budget. We might not have room for parents on the bus. If any parents are able to drive themselves and other parents, we can try to arrange a car pool to help those that want to go, but have no way to get there. If you are able to drive or need a ride, please let me know. You are welcome to arrange rides on your own too, but please let me know when you fill our the permission form or in email so I know who is coming. Thank you for your patience. 

This Friday is our Pizza Party. Students do not need a lunch that day, but they will still need their snack.

Sports Day - This Friday, June 5th is Sports Day. Students can wear clothes of their team colour and ready for physical activities outside. The weather is looking like it will be pretty warm and sunny. Students might want sunscreen and/or hats. School will end at 12:15pm on this day.

Monday, June 8th is the teacher planning day. No school for students. 

I'm hoping to have the permission forms for our field trip to Boundary Bay Regional Park sent home. I'm just waiting for confirmation on the bus and the size of the bus. Parents are welcome to join us. If we have a big bus, there will be lots of seats to accommodate everyone. If the bus is smaller, seating may be limited.

We have dates for all our June, July and August Birthdays! We will celebrate all in June:

June 15th  - Yzabella
June 17th - Kris
June 18th - Caitlin
June 19th - Audrey
June 22nd - Ana Sofia
