Hello Titans of Division 3. Have a GREAT Summer vacation. I miss you already! Make sure you READ over the break. I gave some of you a second copy of the class photo, and I'm wondering if someone would give one back. I have the signed folder part, but can't find the photo!
Have a great, relaxing Summer, and don't forget to read every day!
Today, the grade 7 students celebrated the year end by participating on a field trip to Playland. They enjoyed the beautiful weather, cotton candy, and scary rides with their close friends. Some students will be going to different high schools next year, so this was a great opportunity for them to have some fun with each other before going their separate ways. Grade 7s, your Pancake Breakfast Day is tomorrow! Be here AT THE USUAL TIME, 8:35 a.m.
All - please check your homes, under your bed, etc. for any classroom library books and textbooks.
Hello all. I'm sorry about not posting until now, Sunday afternoon. I had to reset my password because I just couldn't get into this website. I'm not sure why. Grade 7s, Playland is tomorrow. You should bring a disposable lunch, or money for food. The line-ups for food are terrible, it is quite expensive, and it is mostly junk food...just saying. Wear sunscreen, especially on your face. Grade 6s, you will be given special packages of work to do. Work together with the people you are placed with. Work hard. Next year, it is your turn!
