Hi Grade 5 Families!

We had quite an eventful week this week, with our 2nd Grouse Trip, another D.A.R.E  session and a wonderful St. Paul Feast Day Celebration! Looking forward to what this week will bring us.

Our featured image this week is from our feast day celebration; the visit from Drum Cafe! After a wonderful Community Lunch, Drum Cafe gave a lively presentation! Everyone – and I mean everyone – got a drum to play! Have a look at ClassDojo for some videos of the eventful presentation!
