Last Friday was the Grade 7 Farewell Assembly. It was a packed affair and everyone came smartly dressed to join in giving our grade 7 students a memorable farewell. Many memories were shared and each grade 7 student received a commemorative medal. The grade 7 parents decorated the gym in a 70’s theme, organized a pizza luncheon, and set up a pop corn machine & selfie station for the students – what fun! Mr. DJ “Jazzy” Stemler provided the dance tunes for the afternoon. A special thank you to all of the parents who helped organize/set up and clean up for the event. A HUGE shout out to:
- Greg and Liz Holmes for their generous donation to the Grade 7 celebration;
- Eileen Oyhenart for supplying Starbucks coffee & tea for parents/guardians;
- Kevyn Oyhenart for supplying Boston Pizza to all of the grade 7 students.
A big thank you also to the grade 7 teachers (Mr. Stemler, Ms. Gulbransen, Mr. Litt), and Ms. Minhas for organizing the format of the assembly and helping students rise to the occasion.
As the school year ends at Cambridge, it is time to say goodbye and good luck to our grade sevens as they begin their high school years. We wish all of them the best of luck for the future. May all of their hopes and dreams come true.
Thank you to the P.A.C. executive for their great work this year with the different events they organized. A special thank you to all the parents who have volunteered their time this year to help make Cambridge a stronger and more vibrant community.
To the families leaving us at the end of June – we’d like to wish you every success in your new schools and homes. To the families moving into our neighbourhood – welcome! We have many new students registered for September. To the families who are remaining with us – we wish you a wonderful, fun and safe summer. We encourage all students to keep reading over the summer holidays and we look forward to seeing you in September.
FRESHGRADE SUMMARY REPORT
All students will receive a summary report of their learning for the year by Thursday, June 28th. It will contain a cover letter with your child’s attendance for the year, an explanation of the proficiency scale used in your child’s class, and indicators of any additional school supports provided to your child. The individual report for your child will contain information about their interactions with peers, their ability to be personally aware and responsible, and their contributions to the classroom, school, and community. There will also be specific information about what your child knows, can do and understands in Language Arts and Numeracy.
We encourage you to go over it with your child and look for any summer recommendations to continue supporting their learning.
TIME TO COME HOME – A CALL FOR ALL JERSEYS IN THE FINAL WEEK
With three and a half days of school left, we would appreciate all families looking around their homes and in dressers for any Cambridge Jerseys. If you find either of the jerseys shown, please return them to the office. Thank you.
2018/19 BELL SCHEDULE & CALENDAR
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.
FIRST DAY BACK – TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4th
On Tuesday, September 4th, students attend for 1 hour from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. The school web site will include opening day information in mid August.
We have sent emails to all the families who still have outstanding balances on their hotlunches.net accounts. Please settle them asap by sending cash to the office labeled with your child’s name and division or pay online with PayPal. Thank you.
If you have any suggestions for fundraisers, events or hot lunch vendors please email the PAC at Cambridge.firstname.lastname@example.org
