Janne Arlt, Principal

Nicholson Elementary  

As another school year comes to a close, we have been having many end of year celebrations and events.

Last week we had our Grade 7 Farewell.  Our oldest students are looking forward to moving on to the high school but take a lot of memories of their elementary years with them.  Family and friends joined us for a celebration of their time at Nicholson and to wish them well in their futures.

Classes have enjoyed field trips to Calgary, Radium, and all around town.  The swimming program has been taking place every Monday in June.  Our winning house team for the second half of the year, the Tapirs, enjoyed an afternoon of bowling and treats last week.

The Wildfire Safety crew came to visit a couple of classes to talk about forest fire safety.  They brought along Smokey the Bear to help share their message.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve had students awarded with prizes for winning poster contests about Brain Injury Awareness and Remembrance Day.

Today we have a Fun Day in the afternoon.  Grade 6/7 students are manning the stations for the rest of the school to enjoy some relays and games. Tomorrow, there will be a movie in the gym in the morning and classroom award presentations in the afternoon.

As we come to the end of the year, it is a fitting time to recognize all of our staff for their commitment and caring for the students of Nicholson.  We all appreciate and enjoy the support of the parents and families in our community.  Working together is the way to provide the best environment for our students to learn and grow.  Thanks to everyone!

Have a great summer!
