    • Students can come to school dressed in summer clothing. Please remember to encourage your children to dress modestly.
    • Please remember to send your child to school on June 14th with footwear that will allow them to be active.  Please also ensure that they have a water bottle to stay hydrated.  Also, send a hat and sunscreen if it is sunny.
    • The students will be provided with a freezie at the rest station, as well as a hotdog lunch at the end.
    • Please note that the students will be dismissed at 12PM, and parents and siblings are welcome to come and cheer on the competitors!

  • Work Bee - June 8th

    The next Work Bee will take place at the school on Saturday, June 8th from 9:00am to 2:00pm. This is a great way to earn five hours towards your Parent Participation commitment.  Hopefully the weather will be good, so please bring gloves for both indoor and outdoor work, as well as any small cordless garden tools that you have. We are very grateful for all of your hard work around the school.
