There are only three weeks of school left! Once again, I am reminded of how truly blessed we have been this year to be able to have in-person learning. Thank you to all the parents and students who have been so respectful of following the protocols that have been put in place to allow us to continue having everyone in school! As we begin a new week, please take note of the following announcements.

What’s Going On?

This week in Math, we will continue our review of the concepts learned throughout the year. In Language Arts, we will be spending the final weeks working proper word usage (e.g. when to use “seen” vs. when to use “saw”). In Social studies, we will wrap up our exploration of Australia.

Island Hill Farm:

We are excited to be taking grades 1-3 to Island Hill Farm this Thursday, June 3rd for their year end field trip.  A permission slip was sent home with your child on Friday. Please sign and return the permission slip by Wednesday, June 2nd.   The cost per student is $14.00 and the preferred method of payment is through e-transfer by Wednesday, June 2nd.   You may send an e-transfer to and use the password islandhill.   Please also indicate your child’s name in the memo section.

We will be traveling by bus to the farm, leaving the school at 9:00 am and will return to the school for 12:30.  Students should bring a snack and water bottle. We will eat lunch once we return to school.   Please ensure that your child has proper footwear for the farm.

Canada Day (Theme Dress Up Day)

On Tuesday this week we will be celebrating Canada Day. Since we aren’t in school on July 1st, we’ll celebrate it on June 1st instead. Dress in your red and white and all things Canadian.

Humane Society Donations

Grade 5 students, Jack and Penny, have organized a donation drive for the PEI Humane Society for their Genius Hour project. They have been collecting donations of cat supplies, food, and toys. The last day to bring in donations will be this Monday, May 31st. If you would like to support their Genius Hour project and the Humane Society, please bring in donations Monday morning.
