Grade 5

Week of June 14th – 18th

Hi Grade 5 Families,

Thank you for the wonderful birthday cake and Amazon gift card! The cake has already been enjoyed and I can’t wait to figure out what to buy! It was much appreciated! This week, we have a lot to look forward to; the Grade 7 Fundraiser, our Play Day and White Spot Hot Lunch! Please be sure to read the reminders below, I have also emailed the same reminders out! 😃

Our featured image is from our indoor DPA time! With Mr. Kelly away with the Grade 7s for Paddle boarding, we played in the gym – including a good old game of Octopus! Full disclosure, Octopus with older kids – and not littles – is very different! The children were much faster and there were a few more instances of bumping into each other 😬. However the kids were okay, had fun and we even had a nice little stretch on the floor after!
