Here we are – June! Unbelievable, isn’t it? The final newsletter of the season has been posted for your perusal. Scroll to the post below this one to read it. There is still plenty of learning to be done despite there being only 18 (yes, 18) school days left in the year. We will wrap up a handful of projects into next week and then ride out the year toward summer vacation!
We finished up EQAO today. Students didn’t seem too ruffled by it and I had very few questions throughout the process. Many finished the tasks quickly, which tells me it was rather easy or they rushed. I did notice that students progressively finished sooner with each day of testing. The results will be tabulated over the summer and sent to the school sometime in the fall, which is when you will learn how your child performed.
On Monday, two permission forms* will go home; one for the VIP Fun Day on the 15th, and a second for a trip to Adventure Bay on the 20th. VIP only requires a signature, while Adventure Bay comes with an added cost of $8.50, which covers the cost of admission to the park; the bus is being covered by our very generous School Advisory Council. Payment can be made online or with cash/cheque sent to the school. Ideally, keep both forms together and send them back to school that way. Chaperones will be needed for both trips so please indicate your interest on either form when you give consent. FYI: you don’t need to be in the water for Adventure Bay, just present.
Our Jump Rope For Heart event is scheduled for Wednesday, June 6th, with different activities at different stations. Pledges are due Monday, however, and we’re currently far below our class goal of $350 with a mere $30 brought in so far. Hoping for a strong push on Monday.
One more reminder about dress code at the school. Shorts should come past the thumbs when arms are at the side; shirts should cover midriff; undergarments shouldn’t be visible; and shoulder straps should be three fingers wide. Thank you in advance for your support with this.
Have a wonderful weekend!
(*If your child is not going to the VIP trip because he/she did not get his/her volunteer hour in, only the Adventure Bay form will be sent home.)
