Thursday, June 22

Today you dissected an eye, watched some entertaining lip syncing and you got your yearbooks.

Tomorrow morning, first block, we will practice with the other grade 8s for the grade 8 leaving ceremony.  The rock and roll show will follow between recess and lunch.  End of day we'll head outside for one more game of camouflage or mantracker.  Please dress appropriately.

For next week, we will have a soccer competition (wearing the traditional colours as the Disabellers, black and blue) the afternoons of Monday and Tuesday, as well as first block on Tuesday.  We will talk strategy tomorrow in class.

Monday morning we are also having a "Let the Games Begin" event -- bring money for lunch (a Food truck with be available) and for a variety of events, some are free, some are a a small fee -- remember that it is a fundraiser.

Tuesday between lunch and recess we will have the grade 6/7 recognition assembly.  We will also do a locker clean up and out, so please bring bags to bring your stuff home.

Wednesday will be your last full day of school - first block is for us to go and take photos looking so sharp. Typically students dress up semi-formally.Between recess and lunch we will have our recognition assembly and then there will be a potluck to follow.  A photo booth will be available to take photos after the lunch period with a cost of $1.  I have a bit of money left over from my budget, so I will not be asking parents to provide anything for the potluck.  Students can go home after ceremony with their parents or stay eat and listen to music with their peers.  The day will end at the usual time.

Report card pick up is the next day, on Thursday morning.  It is a pick up and go type of affair, same as every year :0)  If you are not able to pick up the report card on that day (report cards will not be sent home early if you can't make it), there are two options - one: the school can scan them to you or two: bring a self-address envelope with a stamp to me and I will pop it into the mail for you.

That's it.  You made it.  No more emails, class work or homework or blog entries.  I hope you have an amazing summer and enjoy yourselves!!
