The Elementary Year-End Assembly will be held on Friday, June 23, from 10:15am to 12:00pm in the Cedars Gym. The Grade 7 Grad will be part of this assembly – it’s always a fun look back on their elementary years! We will also hand out some Math awards and say goodbye to staff who are leaving. Parents are, of course, welcome to attend.
As we draw near to the end of the year, we once again have many items in our lost and found. Please take a moment to check through the corner in the elementary boot room and the lost and found box in the high school foyer for items that your family may be missing before we bags things up and donate them to charity.
Parents are welcome to come watch their children participate in the sports day activities on Friday, June 9, 2017. Team sports begin at 9:20am and the races and the tug-of-war will be after 1:00pm.
A concession will be available during the day. A note with prices will be sent home with students prior to Sports Day. Please ensure that all money brought to school is secure in a wallet or baggie and is clearly marked with your child’s name.
Other important items to have on that day:
- proper footwear (runners for races, etc.)
Thank you so much to all those who have volunteered to help out! Mrs. Van Delft will contact you in the next couple of days.
Next Wednesday, May 31, we will be holding a special Elementary worship chapel starting at 12:45pm outside, in front of the Elementary entrance. We would love for parents to come early to join us as we are lead in worship by the high school Worship Arts class in our final chapel for this year.
