Grade 7 Camp Brebeuf!

Hi Parents!

Just a reminder that students will be returning from Camp Brebeuf today at about 4:45pm. The bus is picking them up at 4pm in Guelph so they are able to enjoy a FULL day of activities today!

If you are picking your child up, please arrive at the school for 4:45-5:00pm.  The kids had an awesome time yesterday doing high ropes, hiking, rock climbing and singing songs around a camp fire.  Warning: some kids shared that they did not get much sleep last night!  They will be very tired tonight:)

See you later this afternoon!

Soccer Tournament Update!

Co Ed Intermediate Soccer Team UPDATE:

Our Intermediate Soccer Tournament has been rescheduled for Thursday May 23, 2019 in the afternoon at RIM.

Apologies for students who will now not be able to attend the tournament.  We have been a great playing team in the past few weeks, so it is certainly disappointing to lose these players.

With this new date, we are looking to confirm parent/guardian drivers.  Please let your child know if you are willing to drive a carload to RIM on Thursday May 23rd.  We will leave the school at 11:45am.

Our first  game WAS scheduled for 12:30pm but may be subject to change due to this new date.

Students MUST be picked up by their own parent.

Track & Field News

Good Morning Hawks!

Our grades 4-8 students are heading to Resurrection on Friday May 10th for our Track & Field running events (long jump will be run at the school).

Permission forms went home last week.  Teachers are still collecting permission forms, and we are missing a number of parent permission formsThey are due on Thursday (tomorrow!).  If your child has lost their initial forms, classroom visits were made today to deliver another set (just in case).  And a copy is attached below.

PLEASE talk to your child and ask if they have handed in their forms yet.  Students who have NOT returned forms will NOT be able to go to the Track & Field event.  They will stay back at the school in one of the grade 1-3 classrooms.
