Grade 5

Week of June 17 – 21

Hi Grade 5 Families,

A Happy Father’s Day to our Dads, Uncles, Grandfathers, and Father Figures! I hope you have a wonderful weekend celebrating with loved ones!

We had several special events this past week, with our Bowling Trip, our Saint Bio Box and Inquiry presentations, as well as the Grade 7 Fundraiser event! It was exciting and we wouldn’t have it any other way! This week, we look forward to another field trip to the Richmond Recycling Depot and a Fun Day/Parent Appreciation Day!

Our featured image this week is from the Grade 7 Fundraiser. They shared with us skits they wrote, videos they made and performed for us! They acted, they sang, they even gave us prizes! It was a lot of fun and all for a good cause; proceeds went towards The Door Is Open and St. Joseph Nursery Foundations.
