Dear Families,

It's June! June is a funny time in a school. Some students and families cannot wait for school to be over. For other students and families the 'end of the school year' can be difficult for a variety of reasons. So, while many of us are looking to forward to the summer, it is also important to recognize the significant role our school and the community of people in it have daily in the lives of students, families and staff. If you are needing support finding summer activities or support for your family or child(ren) please contact your child's teacher or me.

It will be a busy month. We are grateful and excited to have our K-6 students engaged in a number of off-site activities. Kindergarten will be visiting Telus Spark, Grade 1/2 Field School, Grade 3/4 Drumheller and Grade 5/6 Telus Spark, as well as Grade 5 students attending ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen. Several of these activities have been subsidized by the following partners including: Kids Up Front, the Honorable Kathleen Ganley, The ATCO Group and CBE Integration and Environmental Services. Without this support we would not be able to offer these rich learning experiences. Thank you also to the many parent volunteers giving of their time to support us with supervision during our many field trips.

There are also many of school-based activities planned for June. Please ensure you check the calendar often, and know that you are always welcome to join us!

May this last month of the school year bring many rich experiences and celebrations and recognition of learning.

"Green was the silence, wet was the light,
the month of June trembled like a butterfly."
―Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets
