Hope you all are enjoying the sun while it lasts!

Track Try-out Day (a.k.a. In-House Track Qualifiers)

Be on the lookout for an important permission form being sent home tomorrow regarding Track Try-out Day. This Wednesday, students in grades 2-6 will be travelling by bus to UPEI to participate in training exercises for Track & Field events. This day is set aside for students to compete against their classmates to determine which students will participate in track events in the upcoming ACSI Track Meet on May 31. We will leave the school at 9:00 AM, and return to the school around 12:00 PM. Students are required to take sneakers, fitness wear, and a water bottle.

Travel Brochure

Please be aware that students have been assigned a Travel Brochure Project for Social Studies. Rough copies are due for ESL students on Friday, June 19, so that Miss Kelsey can review them with her students. For non-ESL students, rough copies are due on Tuesday, May 23. Final copies and presentations will be the week of June 5-9. Please take time to review the outline which was sent home and email me with any questions you have.

Bowling Night with the Boys

For those of you who were able to join us for our Mother, Daughter, Grandmother Tea Party last weekend, you will recall the special moments that we were able to share with one another – quality time, treats, and tea for all.

With that being said, it’s the boys’ turn to make memories. We hope all our elementary boys will join their fathers, grandfathers, and those who are like their fathers next Friday evening from 6:00 – 7:30 at the Murphy Centre for $5 bowling.

For more information, please contact Mrs. Effie Able.  Grab your bowling shoes, boys!
