Happy Mother’s Day! Here’s your weekly update of announcements:

Friendly Letters:

Students in Gr. 5 have been working on writing friendly letters. Some students wrote to someone they could give their letter to face-to-face, while others decided to write to someone much further away. These students have been tasked to do some digging for the mailing address of their intended recipient so it can be mailed to them.

Students have also been asked to learn their own mailing address. This will be used as a return address. It will also be used as a mailing address on the letter they have written to their future selves. These letters will be mail to students shortly after the end of the school year.

Father & Son Bowling Event:
