Hello Families,

I hope you have been able to enjoy this gorgeous weather!

We have only 41/2 weeks of Kindergarten left before the children begin their summer holidays. This year has flown by for me.

In our Community Helpers unit, the children learned about toy makers and became curious about making their own toys. Three categories were identified as points of interest.

  1. Stuffed Animals
  2. Night Lights
  3. Cars

**If you would like to contribute to the children’s “making” please keep a look out for empty plastic water bottles with lids, felt, poly-fil for stuffing, cardboard, green painters tape etc. Thanks in advance.

Kindergarten Graduation

Kindergarten graduation is on Wednesday, June 16th this year, not Tuesday the 15th. Also, the graduation performance is a celebration of the Senior Kindergarten class. Next year when our current Junior students are Senior students, they will have their turn for graduation.

The final school day for both Junior and Senior students will be Wednesday, June 16th and will be over at Noon (12:00). 

Please pick up your children in the usual way using the drive through as we send the children out to you at 12:00.

More information about the graduation will be shared in the coming few weeks.
