This year’s graduation class was born in 2001, the year the world changed. Up until that time, we believed that everything was getting better. Peace in the Middle East was possible.

Hello Grade 5 Parents,
Please see the information below from Mrs. Grandinetti regarding a program that the Grade 5s are participating in:
We are very excited to have Trickster Theatre coming to our school next week to work with all the grade 5 classes. Trickster has a 35 year history of working successfully in Alberta Schools. You can find out more about Trickster, and view clips of some of their work in schools, at their website: http://www.trickstertheatre.com/
Because the students will be involved in physical theatre for the entire week, the grade 5s are permitted to wear casual. Sweat pants or shorts and loose fitting tops will be more comfortable and appropriate than jeans and dresses.
Grade 5 students will be exploring the theme of First Nations' contributions to society. The week will end with a performance on Friday afternoon, June 10th at 1:00 pm. All parents are invited. We hope that many of you will be able to join us for this celebration of learning!
