With the end in sight, our school has been hosting a ton of events to end the school year off well. We would like to thank Homespun Seasons for donating material to our Grade 6 science classes. We also want to send a big thank you to Canalta for donating and serving hot dogs and pop at our Y-CAT BBQ and Constable Lewadniuk for bringing cruisers to our Jam the Van event this past Friday. Without everyone’s help and generosity, these events wouldn’t be possible.

To conclude this year’s band program, Night of the Bands will be held on Tuesday, June 3 at the Performing Arts Centre at 7:00 pm. It will be featuring all the bands from Grade 6 through 12, including the Jazz band. Admission will be completely free, but a food donation would be greatly appreciated, and will be accepted at the front door.

This past Wednesday, both Grade 8 outdoor education classes and on Thursday, the grades 7A and 7C classes went out into the community and volunteered at the Community Gardens. They were helping out Rob Spencer, and spreading mulch across the Community Gardens. Great job grades 7 and 8s!

The Grade 8 students left yesterday for Nordegg for their annual camping trip. They will be returning this Friday after having tented for three nights. Everyone arrived early yesterday morning very excited and ready to experience the fun outdoors with all of their classmates. We can’t wait to hear about all the adventures when they return.

Last Friday turned out to be a very busy day at SMS. Y-CAT held their annual hot dog BBQ and Jam the Van event. Students enjoyed hot dogs for $2, pop for $1, and freezies for $1, with all proceeds going towards our school’s anti-bullying campaigns. Then they were separated by grade and gender to see how many of them could fit into a police cruiser van. The Grade 8 boys came out on top, by squeezing 35 into the van. The Grade 6 boys were close behind with 30. It looked like everyone had a great time.

Accompanying our BBQ and Jam the Van event, was Beach Dress Up Day. Students and staff came to school dressed in their best beachwear. Considering how hot the day was, all the events went over very well.

Our school track meet will be on Tuesday next week with all students participating in many events. If you are around, come out and cheer on our athletes. There will be a concession with tasty hamburgers being offered. The top track competitors will advance to the C.A.R.A. competition being held here on June 10th.

Grade 6 orientation for next year is being held on June 9th at 6:30 pm. All new grade 6 students and their parents are invited to tour the school and meet the teachers.

The SMS Talent Show is being held on June 12th in the afternoon. It looks like there are a lot of entries and a good variety of talents that are going to be showcased. There is excitement building in the school in preparation for this event and for the nearing end of the school year.
