In the world of elementary schools, September and June are probably our busiest months. With just a month of school left teachers and students are working on finishing up writing and anchoring district wide assessments in writing (all students), and numeracy (grade 5 students). June is also especially busy with all classes participating in various field trips, presentations, swimming and teachers writing final report cards, completing year end paper work and cleaning out classrooms.
Congratulations to, Mrs. Kelly McArthur and Madame Soujah’s student leaders who ran very successful Jump Rope for Heart and Hoops for Heart events at Lady Grey and Alexander Park on May 20th. In early June we will be offering Rock Solid Retreats at Camp Wenman for all Golden Grade 7s in preparation for high school. The Grade 7s will finish their time at Lady Grey with their Grade 7 Farewell on June 16th, a transition day at Golden Secondary School on June 24th and a three day leadership trip to Blue Lake from June 27-29th.
Finally we will also be holding our Volunteer Appreciation lunch on June 6 th. We hope you can attend. We are very thankful for the time and contribution of our volunteers in making our school a vibrant place for children.
Field School Happenings
The snow stopped falling and the sun started shining so things are fantastic in Field! We’ve started having gymnastic classes in Canmore and we’re loving it. We’re also looking forward to hosting a couple of classes from Golden in the month of June and having a grand unveiling of the clay mural that Pierrette Robinson and Donna Williams created for us. If you stop in Field make sure you look for the mural as you drive into town.
