Hello everybody, I hope you all had a nice start to spring.
Our school has been very busy and we are spending lots of time outside while the weather stays nice.
Our Leadership students have been very busy with the “WE ARE SILENT” project for the last two weeks. On April 17, Leadership students participated in “WE ARE SILENT.” This period of silence acknowledged people around the world without a voice to speak up.
For example, the Leadership students said some people who don’t have a voice are those who are bullied, those who don’t have an opportunity to go to school and children working in sweatshops.
We also had our yearly book fair during which we made $2,800. Out of this money, we get to keep $700, which our school Librarian will be using to purchase new books and a document camera. Thank you Lisa Davidson for making it possible for us to have lots of new books for our school library!
On May 8, we also had our Talent Show in which some of the students got to perform in front of the whole school. Our students showcased their talents in singing, dancing, juggling, and stand-up comedy.
We had lots of winners, but the two overall winners were Emma Donnelly playing the violin (Grade 2) and Mia Weir singing (Grade 6). Everyone did a wonderful job and their talent is amazing!
An upcoming event that we are excited about is our Spring Fair on May 23. Our students will be participating from 1 to 3 p.m. and then it will be open for the community from 4 to 6 p.m.
We will have lots of fun and exciting events happening, such as balloon darts, wheel of fortune, minute to win it, duck pond, bubble station, face painting, cupcake walk and many more fun activities.
You can play each game for just one $1 ticket and every ticket wins a prize. There will be ice cream, hotdogs, cotton candy and popcorn.
We also have generous donations from local businesses! Parents have the opportunity to bid on those items at our silent auction area.
Please come and support us for our new playground equipment.
I wish everybody a nice month of May.
