  • Upcoming June Events

    It is hard to believe that we are now in the final month of the school year.  As always, June is a very busy month with many activities and events planned.  Here is some information to help you plan:

    Early Dismissal Day – Wednesday, June 7th:

    • Our next early dismissal day for our monthly staff meeting will take place on Wednesday, June 7th.  As always, the students should bring a snack and lunch to school that day, and they will be dismissed at 12:55pm

    Sports Day – Friday, June 9th:

    • The students will be participating in many fun stations run by our Grade 7 students.  Students should come to school dressed either in their gym strip or their Thunderwear, and may add some accessories to represent the team they are on.  More information will be coming home next week regarding how to accessorize to show their team spirit
    • Please remember to send your child to school on June 9th 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 that includes a small bag of chips and a juice box.
    • Please note that the students will be dismissed at 12:15pm, and parents and siblings are welcome to come and cheer on the competitors!

    Planning Day – Monday, June 12th:

    • There will be no school for the students on Monday, June 12th, as the staff gathers to plan for the 2023-2024 school year
  • Work Bee - June 10th

    The next Work Bee will take place at the school on Saturday, June 10th 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.

  • Walkathon Prize Rally - Wednesday, June 7th

    Our Walkathon Prize Rally will be held on Wednesday, June 7.  Next week, students will receive a bag of all the prize raffle tickets they earned and their teacher will take them to the gym to put the raffle tickets into the Raffle Prize Draws of the student’s choice(s).  We will draw the winners later that day at the Prize Assembly.  As well, the Top Primary Student, Top Intermediate Student and the winner of the Basketball Hoop will be drawn. 

    We are so fortunate to have so many prizes donated to be won.  You can start to review the prizes with your children at https://www.stjameselementary.ca/walkathon/
