Please sign and return the spelling test books asap. Thanks.

The Energy Cube Run at Centennial Park was a big hit! It looks like our second grade class is full of great athletes! The runners - and the weather -  were outstanding!

Enjoy May's last weekend!

Study for tomorrow's spelling tests!

Thanks to Sadie's mom (again!) for doing the Brain Boost program!

We will be having a school-wide Energy Cube challenge tomorrow afternoon: running around Centennial Park! Please send your child with appropriate footwear, and a water bottle, and apply sunscreen at home if you feel the day will warrant UV protection. Thanks!

Please remember that this will be our last week of the Energy Cube Challenge and that the booklets should return to school next Monday morning. Thanks!

What a change in the weather today! Sheesh!

Thanks so much to Niko's mom and Hailey's mom for helping out with Brain Boost today. We really appreciate you - and the brain boost!

This is the final week of the school's energy cube challenge; please try to send  your child's energy cube record to school asap if you haven't already done so. I'll return the booklets the same day they arrive at school, so that your child can keep on collecting cubes at home.

Thanks, as well, to everyone who sent snacks/cookies/muffins etc. for our recess sale. We'll count our earnings tomorrow (and also return the food containers tomorrow).

Thanks so much to Carson's mom and Dustin's mom for looking after Brain Boost for our school - two days in a row! I know it's not easy to find the time to do this job. Please know that your efforts are really appreciated!

Here are some reminders for the upcoming week:

1. There is a noon dismissal for the students this Friday.

2.  The student council is sponsoring a Twin Day this Friday. The idea is to find another person and plan to dress in the same clothing, or wear the same hair ... something to make you look like a twin! If anyone can't find a partner to "twin" with, everyone in Room Four is invited to wear something blue on the bottom (pants, a skirt, shorts, etc.) and something white on the top. Who knows? Maybe we'll all look like twins!

Mrs. Lawson's Kindergarten/Grade One class is having a cookie/snack sale this Thursday at recess. (I'm sure Mrs. Lawson has sent home a note regarding this already.) The first grade students are going to be looking after the recess sale with me, in the front foyer of the school. Please send your contributions to the sale to our classroom (Room Four) first thing in the morning this Thursday. Thanks!

Freewheel Cycle is having their annual free bike check-up tomorrow after school in the area near the playground. Your child is welcome to bring their bike for a once-over from the good people at Freewheel. Thanks, Freewheel team!

The school will be participating in a Jump Rope for Heart skipping event this Friday morning. If you'd like to contribute to this fund-raiser, you can pick up a pledge sheet from the office.

That should about do it for today. Just one final thought: if anyone can locate the person in charge of this May weather, please ask them to warm things up a bit! Enough cold air is enough!

Spelling tests went home today for parent signatures. Please send the books back to school Monday morning.  Thanks.

Thanks, as well, to our carrot peelers and choppers for this morning: Carter D's mom and dad and Carter S's mom. It's great to have such wonderful support for our school's brain boost program!

Our grade one class will be helping out with Mrs. Lawson's cookie/snack sale next Thursday. The first graders will be selling cookies/snacks on the school's main floor at recess, and the kindergarten room will look after sales at the top of the high ground stairs. Mrs. Lawson will be sending info home about the cookie/snack sale next week, I'm sure.

Our school will be participating in a Jump Rope for Heart fund-raiser next Friday morning. If you'd like to support this cause, please contact the office to pick up donation information. (Everyone will be skipping, regardless of whether or not they have been a fund-raiser.)

We had great anti-bullying presentations this morning, for both first and second grade. The students were very engaged and receptive to ideas about how to combat bullies and bullying - great to see and to report.

If' you'd like some more info on the Frisbee Rob demonstrations that we saw yesterday, you can go to or google Frisbee Rob's name.

Thanks so much to Jane's mom and to Bella's mom (from kindergarten) for doing brain boost prep and deliveries for our school today. :)!

There are spelling tests to study for tonight, for both grade one and grade two.

There is a free yoga session for students with Jenna McGrath tomorrow in the gym at lunch.

Here's a photo of the great grade two class at Lake Annette today.  Enjoy!

And here's a photo of the feathered friend that Dustin spotted!
