Thank you to all of the parents/guardians/grandparents who attended our Appreciation Tea on June 5th. Our students loved working on the “hats off to you” art that covered the gym walls, and our student performers enjoyed showcasing their talents. On behalf of our entire school community, thank you for volunteering your time to make Cambridge a better place for all students.
On June 6th, Cambridge Track & Field students headed off to the district meet at Bear Creek Park. It was a day filled with best efforts, great sportsmanship and cheering on friends. A special thank you to Mrs. Steeves and Mrs. Bomford for organizing and coordinating the day. A HUGE thank you to Mr. Bomford for taking the day off to accompany Cambridge students.
Our theme this year is Cambridge All Stars! Every student will be assigned to a colour team: Red, Blue, Green or White. Your child’s classroom teacher will advise you what team your child is assigned to. Students should dress in as much of their house colours as possible, and should dress appropriately for the weather and activities. We will be outside ALL day.
- To wear running shoes!
- Have a hat and sunscreen on
- Have a water bottle labelled with their name
If it is raining on June 15th, the rain out day will be on Monday, June 18th. Please check Cambridge website at http://www.cambridgelearns.com for the most up to date information.

Cambridge Elementary has made a minor change to the 2018/19 bell schedule (Bell Schedule 2018_19) as required by the school district to reflect the number of days of instruction. We have also created our calendar of important events for 2018/19 (Dates to Remember 2018_19) below. NOTE – There was an error on last week’s calendar as March 14th is on a Thursday, not Friday. Both documents can also be found on our school web site as a PDF.
Thanks to all the volunteers who signed up for Sports Day! We will be contacting you this week.
Please check your hot lunches account. We will be contacting all families who have amounts owing. We would like to have all the accounts cleared up before the end of the year. Remember, if you don’t cancel the order, or contact us to cancel the order, before the deadline, the order will still be placed. We understand sometimes money can be delayed in getting back to us and don’t want your kid to miss out.
See you all at Sports Day!
