Kindergarten students had a fabulous last day of school on Monday, June 22.  It was filled with nothing but special events.  Without a doubt, the highlight of the day was their trip to Moonwalkers in Alix. Mrs. du Toit, Mrs. Norman, Mrs. Thorne and Mrs. Bruketa had just as much fun as their students.  The students were delighted to see their teachers crawling and sliding with them.  Laughter filled the air as students discovered many “secret” places in the Mooonwalkers’ maze.  On returning to school, the students enjoyed free pizza from BP. The day ended with a fun Gummy Bears dance and hugs all around.  We hope all our lovely Kindergarten students have a happy and safe summer.

Grade 1 students went on their annual field trip to the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller on Thursday. The students spent much of June learning about different types of dinosaurs and some even had a chance to make fossils. They enjoyed applying their knowledge as they explored different exhibits at the museum. After a fun filled morning at the museum, the students headed to the Drumheller Spray Park to cool down.  They giggled and squealed with delight as they sprayed each other as well as their teachers in the wading pool. What a great way to say good-bye to an amazing year of learning.

Grade 2 and 3 students enjoyed an action packed track meet day on Tuesday, June 25. All of the students participated in about 10 events, as well as playing in the bouncy house.  Everyone enjoyed the day. Thank you to all the parent volunteers who helped ensure the day ran smoothly.

All Grade 3 classes enjoyed a fun-filled day at Circle Square Ranch on Monday, June 22.  While at the ranch, students took part in a variety of activities throughout the day including archery, obstacle course, wall climbing, indoor games, and horseback riding.  Thank you to all the parent volunteers who helped make this a memorable day.

Sunnybrook Farms in Red Deer was the destination for the Grade 4 students on Thursday, June 25. Everyone participated in activities focused on learning more about wheels and levers and pioneer life.  It was a perfect fieldtrip, filled with learning and fun.

The Grade 5 students also celebrated the year by going to the Calgary Zoo on Wednesday.  The fieldtrip was declared an awesome experience.  Thank you to the many parents who accompanied the students.  The fieldtrip would not have been possible without parent helpers.

Many students entered a Legion Remembrance Day poster contest back in November.  Recently, the following students learned that their pictures were Legion winners:  Ethan Nichols, Rhys Pederson, Etta Dryden-Brown, Reagan Robbins, Erinn Dunn-Jackson, and Jessica Turnbull.  Congratulations, all!

 

Friday afternoon, all students and staff gathered in the gym for a farewell assembly.  Mrs. Lynn’s Grade 4 class presented one last 7 Habits lesson: Sharpen the Saw – Habit 7.   The students discussed the need to have balance in our lives. Following the presentations and recognitions, students headed back to their classrooms for a final goodbye with their teacher.

 

Although students are focused on the summer holiday, school staff is already planning for the next school year.  One change that will occur is with early morning outside supervision.  It will be later than in years past.   Outside supervision will begin at approximately 8:30 a.m. when the first bus arrives.  If you have questions please call the school in late August.  Happy summer holidays…
