Mrs. du Toit’s kindergarten class had a very fun field trip visiting the pet department at Home Hardware on Monday, June 3. They coloured pictures of Murphy the Macaw and enjoyed looking at the fish, birds, puppies, gecko, hermit crabs, hamsters and jellyfish.

Heather was a great tour guide and we want to thank Mike for the yummy popcorn.

Mrs. du Toit’s class wishes Murphy the best of luck with his retirement from the store.

Mrs. Bruketa’s three-day kindergarten class celebrated their 100th school day on June 3. Room mom Cindy Savage generously donated her time and brought a delicious 100-day cake.

She also brought 100 solo cups for the students to build towers with, 100 connecting straws, a 100-foot roll of paper to paint handprints on, and 100 glowing items (glasses, bracelets, necklaces, etc.).

Mr. Olafson volunteered to come to the class and read a 100-day story to the students, and they were so excited because the last time he read a story to the class, he read it while standing on his head.

The students brought home balloons so they could include their parents in the 100-day fun. The balloon held a special note inside that encouraged all of the students to shower their parents with 100 kisses, back rubs and much more.

The 100-day celebrations were a success!

HEaRT after-school programs are winding up, with the end of the school year quickly approaching. Their last PD Monday after-school session was June 3.

Their last Physical Friday will be this Friday. A special wind-up party is planned for the kids. We have Reptile World coming in to show some of their fantastic reptiles.
