Thank you to everyone who walked over to the Pow Wow on Friday! The weather was perfect and the dancers were all very talented. It seems the Hoop Dancer was the favourite among our class.
Another thanks for the caterpillar timelines and baby pictures that came pouring in last week. The kids will be presenting them over the course of this week so you still have time to send one if you have not already done so! We are going to put up the baby pictures and see if they can guess whose who!
I’ve attached a calendar of events to help you remember all the special days and times. Our big event for June is a fieldtrip to the Galt Museum on June 9th just before morning recess. Luckily, the museum provides buses for this trip, but if you would like to come help supervise please fill out the form at the end of this newsletter.
The entire staff at Mike Mountain Horse would like to say a HUGE thank you to all parents for your tremendous dedication in supporting teachers and children in their learning all year long. A special Pancake Breakfast will be held on Tuesday June 3th from 7:00-8:20am to show our appreciation.
Just a quick reminder that all library books are due back in the library and the children will not be checking out any new stories from now until the end of the year. The kids will write and let you know the last day for home reading in their agendas soon! This is our last week for spelling words with the final test on June 6th. This is also a good time to visit the lost and found with your child to claim any missing items if you have not already done so.
Our big year end picnic will be held on Tuesday June 24th . More handouts will follow in the next few weeks. It is held at the Elk’s Picnic Shelter at the river bottom and all five grade one classes will be there! We are booking busses for this event and hope you can sneak away over the lunch hour from 11:45 to 1:00 to picnic with us. It’s a really fun day and I hope you’ll be able to join us!
