Grade 5

Week of October 1 – 5

Hi Grade 5 Families!

It’s hard to believe that it’s already October! It has been a great first month and here’s to an even better second month! On Friday, had a wonderful Walkathon, being blessed with beautiful weather! The children were very enthusiastic all around but with the hot sun and long walk, so I’m sure they had a great rest Friday night- I know I did! Thank you again to the families that were able to join us for the day; whether it was walking with us, helping at a checkpoint or sending us off in the morning; your love and support is always appreciated!

Reminder to please send any snapshots of the day! I’d love to seem some!

This week’s feature image is the children having their deserved break and snack at Garden City Park during Friday’s Walkathon. What a beautiful day!
