June 10 BUZZ

Happy Monday!

I would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who contributed to making our Sports Day a tremendous success. We have an amazing staff who organized fun and engaging events and wonderful parent volunteers who ran the events and cheered on our students. Everyone's involvement is invaluable, and we appreciate the time and effort dedicated to making this day enjoyable for all our students. We are also grateful to our School Council for providing freezies, which were a refreshing treat for everyone.

The grand finale, the surprise staff inflatables race, was an absolute highlight! Seeing the joy and excitement on the students' faces was priceless and created memories we will all cherish. Enjoy the video of the race which can be found below in the photo galleries.

Library Books Due Back!

All library books are due back this week, so we can begin doing inventory on our collection. Please help your child remember to bring back ALL books they have checked out. At the end of this week, we'll be sending overdue notices and fine amounts to families! Students can bring their books back any day this week and place them in the cart by the office. They don't have to wait until their normal library day.

BOGO Scholastic Book Fair

This week, students will have a chance to visit one final Scholastic Book Fair. This one is Buy One Get One Free (the free item must be equal or lesser value). Parents are welcome to come during any of the shopping times on Wednesday and Thursday, if they would like to purchase books as well. These BOGO fairs are a great way to stock up on books to keep your student(s) reading throughout the summer!

Lost and Found

All lost and found items are on display on tables near the front office. We will be asking teachers to bring students to look over the items and collect lost things several times before the year ends. We invite families to drop by and take a look through the items as well.

At the end of the school year, we will bag up all of the items in good condition for donation. Come and find your things before the last day as they will be gone the following day!

Strathcona County Library Summer Programs

This past week, students had presentations from the Public Library. Some kids were really interested in the summer programs they spoke about. For more information about the programs, and to register, visit this website. Some programs will fill up quickly, so be sure to check them out soon!

INFORMATION

Numeracy Corner

As we head into the summer break, we wish you and your family a fun and relaxing time! To keep your child engaged with numeracy over the summer, consider incorporating some math into everyday activities. Playing board games that involve counting or strategy, like Monopoly or Yahtzee, can be a great way to practice math skills while having fun. Enjoy the sunshine, relaxation, and exploration that summer brings!
