For those of you that have 5th graders, you may have heard that last week we had our annual floor hockey games, kids against staff! I’m happy to say the staff managed to keep the winning record alive and pull out the win against each class! We had to work very hard as these kids are seriously competitive, but fun was had by all! It obviously looked a bit different this year with all of the Covid restrictions, but so glad we were able to keep the tradition going!

Next week will be a busy week as we have parent teacher conferences on Monday the 8th and Wednesday the 10th. These will be held virtually again just as they were in the Fall. You should have heard from your child’s teacher and have it scheduled, but if you have not, please let us know! The book fair will also be going on during the week next week as well.
