1.     Learning Celebration – Tuesday, May 16, 2023 (led by Grade 2/3 Community English Students)

Community English Program students in our Grade 2/3 classes are leading our upcoming learning celebration on Tuesday, May 16, 2023 starting at 1:00pm. This celebration focuses on sharing student learning including a focus on the 7 Sacred Teachings, the wolf and the virtue of Humility.

We would like to invite parents of performing students from our Grade 2/3 Community English Program classes to attend. Please note that due to fire safety code we have to limit our parent viewing to the first 100 parents. Doors will open at 12:55pm. If waiting outside, we ask that you please line up along the Main West Door sidewalk leading out towards Varsity Drive.

2.     Marion Carson Run Club

We've been lucky with all of the great weather offered on running club days! This morning was another great running club event that had students start off their day in an active way. Students have taken up the challenge of gathering popsicle sticks for laps, as we try to grow our total each week. This morning we used up almost all of our 2000 popsicle sticks. Our next run club date in Friday May 19, 2023. Whether you want to walk or run, we look forward to seeing any and all parents and students by the soccer fields starting at 8:55am.
