Last Thursday, we had our May/Early June assembly where the Ultimate sports team, the Track & Field team, and a very special student in grade 2, who did an amazing job of fundraising for the BC Children’s Hospital, were all recognized. In addition, Ms. Vogstad talked about the importance of finishing the school year on a positive note by focusing on three key points:

  1. Getting to school on time and staying super organized
  2. Staying positive and solving conflicts in peaceful, mindful ways
  3. Keep our minds on LEARNING right through the last day of school
