Where did the time go? One week left! Check out the dates below to keep up with all of the activities in our last week.

Field Day! – Thanks to our PE teachers for organizing the events on the field today. Thanks also to the 7th graders who ran the activities and to the PTO volunteers who provided the ice cream teats. Our PE teachers set-up a great variety of activities to participate in and we enjoyed them for the first hour, before the rain chased us inside! Great fun!

Sharing the Planet – Plants – Thank you to our parent volunteers who joined us at the Kuzminki apiary on Tuesday. We had a great day of informative fun, learning about bees, making beeswax candles, and tasting honey. If your child hasn’t told you about the trip yet, ask about the experience.

Support Staff Appreciation – Thank you to all of the first grade families who showed their appreciation to our support staff with all of the yummy sweet treats sent in on Thursday. So many people have an active role in keeping our school running smoothly for the benefit of our children. It was a great way to show that we know and appreciate what they do for AAS.

Wednesday Movie Snacks – As a follow-up to our apiary trip, we will be watching the “Bee Movie” on Wednesday. We are inviting families to send in a snack to share with some of our classmates during intermission. This is optional of course, but if you would like to send in a snack to share, please do so.

Leaving Early? If your child will not be in school through the last day – Thursday, June 20 (12:00 dismissal), please email the classroom teacher as soon as possible. We want to make sure all work and extra clothing are gathered for each student. This will also assist our parents planning our end-of-year celebration. Thank you.

Reports are coming! – Reports will be emailed on the last day of school. We have recently changed the software that we use for report cards, so they will have a slightly different layout. On the latest reports, we are unable to select a mark that is between approaching, meeting, or beyond meeting. Read the teacher comments to fully understand your child’s progress.

Tuesday, June 18 – Gr 1 End of year celebration at 2:30 on the Greentop, Parents welcome!

Wednesday, June 19 – optional – send a snack to share for our “Bee Movie” intermission
