Dragon’s Breath May 6 – 10

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I would like to take an opportunity to thank Ms. Tee for all she did last week while I was at camp with our Grade 6s and 7s and especially for taking on the bulk of communications for the school.


Students received track and field information last week. I’ve attached the Track and Field Notice below for your information and just in case you needed another copy. Students for the most part should have a pretty good idea about what events they will compete in. There is a slight chance that an event may be added to their day. Details of any additional events will be given to students on Monday. Please be reminded, that permission forms are due tomorrow (Monday).




Don’t forget that the Entrepreneur Fair will be on Friday May 10 from 9:15am – 12pm in the gym. Our students have worked very hard, researching potential ideas, gathering materials and creating great items to sell. Come and see all the great items that our students have set up. Items will be between $1- $5.

The end of the year is super busy at our school.  In an effort to keep you informed, here are some key Save the Dates!
