Aristotle said “The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.” We trust that all our students are really enjoying the sweet fruit of success as the school year comes to a close.

Monica Sylvester’s grade one class celebrated the end of a successful school year by inviting family members to their Miss Spider Tea party. Relatives were able to go through students writing, see art projects, view a slideshow of pictures taken throughout the year, and were treated to a visit by Miss Spider herself. Miss Spider brought yummy baking for all the guests and shared stories about each one of the students. After the tea party, students and their family members enjoyed a picnic lunch outside in the sun. Thanks to everyone who came to celebrate the students. Mrs. Sylvester’s class would also like to thank their high school buddies for the yummy waffle breakfast which the Grade 1 students were treated to in the high school cafeteria.

On June 13, kindergarten and Grade 1 classes enjoyed a great Fun Day organized by gym teacher Jill Neitz. Kim Thorne as well as Denyse Boyd’s kindergarten classes and all Grade 1 classes attended the dress rehearsal, for the Middle School’s play at the PAC on Thursday, June 16. The play was a spoof of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. Grade 8 journalism students in Tara Hallet’s class wrote story books based on the children in Mrs. Boyd’s classroom.

Mrs. Boyd’s class and Mrs. Thorne’s class celebrated the last week of kindergarten by having a sundae party on Tuesday and a hotdog lunch on Thursday. The sundaes and the hotdog lunch were provided by the teachers. Zero the Hero also came to visit the three-day kindergarten students on June 15. Students enjoyed an educational 100 chick hunt organized by Sandra Norman. All kindergarten classes went to Red Deer to the Collicutt Centre for their year-end fi eld trip. Thank you to all the parent volunteers for making this a wonderful end to a great year.

Grade 5 students had an amazing time at Circle Square ranch. This Grade 5 camp included many fun activities such as hiking, tie-dyeing, canoeing, wall climbing, archery, obstacle course, story-telling, games and just enjoying nature and friends. This event was made possible by the hard work of our fabulous Grade 5 teachers Bonnie Lynn, Stefan Olafson, Teresa Anderson, Sharon Fischer and Rob Howell. Once again we extend a big thank you to our wonderful parent volunteers and support staff.

We also extend a belated Happy Father’s Day to all the good Dads out there. We hope you were spoilt.
