Principal Greeting | April

Hello Parents

 

We look forward to the sun shining for us in May. April was very wet and snowy which really put a damper on track and field practices and our Aussie Rules Football workshop that we offered in Physical Education classes last week!

April was an active month with students competing in badminton divisionals and practicing for track and field when possible. In the month of May we have a number of exciting things to look forward to. Author Cathy Beveridge will return to continue her Artist in Residence writing program with our grade five and six students. Thirty-one of our grade eight students are looking forward to the “Raptor Invasion” of eastern Canada. These students will visit Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City from May 8th through 13th. Our track and field meet will be held on May 15th at Glenmore Park. We look forward to a great showing from our Raptors. Near the end of the month our grade 5’s will be attending the Atco Blue Flame Kitchen and grade seven students will be travelling to Heritage Park.

 

In this newsletter you will find information about our planning for next year. We are excited to be expanding from 340 to 530 students and growing to a staff of 25 teachers from our current 17.

 

Thank you for taking the time to read the newsletter and staying informed of what is happening around the school.
