WE MADE IT!!!
Give yourselves a big pat on the back. Elementary school is done, now it’s on to bigger and better adventures.
Thank you to everyone for the most incredible gifts. I am absolutely at a loss of words to express my gratitude and emotions. I definitely shed some tears when opening them. This year may have had some bumps, but in the end, you are all lovely and will blossom as you move forward.
I wish you all a safe and enjoyable summer, and all the best in September, wherever you decide to continue your studies. And always remember:
Let’s finish this. Say it with me. Division One, Roll Out!
Thanks again to everyone who sent something in for the auction We had so much stuff and almost everyone was able to win something. If they seem to be a hyped up on sugar, they probably are. It was mostly food for sure.
See you tonight! Reminder:
- Doors open at 6:00, first 350 people get chairs, then its standing room only
- 6:15 ceremony
- 7:45 Dance SIGN IN, the parent must sign their child in. At that point, if the student has a phone, the parent can take it or it will be locked up in office until the dance is over
- 9:00 pick up
Another reminder: TOMORROW IS CULTUS!
Come prepared, we have no idea what kind of weather we are going to get. It’s also a really long day so a positive attitude will be appreciative.
We anticipate returning to JKE between 5:45 and 6:00pm tomorrow. The buses pick us up from Cultus at 4:30. We will be updating the office on our progress.
Phones are NOT PERMITTED tomorrow. If they are seen they will get taken away. Staff will have their devices if contact is needed. Thank you in advance.
3. More. Days!
Today we began setting up and decorating the gym for tomorrow. It’s starting to look pretty good! Tomorrow we will be in there for the morning, finishing decorating, and doing a run through of the ceremony.
Tomorrow afternoon is our Class Auction! Thank you to everyone who has donated something for it, I really appreciate it! I am still collecting items if you have anything last minute to send.
Just a reminder about tomorrow:

There will be chairs for the first 350 guests and benches and standing room IF we go over that. No tickets required.

Today we were treated to the Grad Walk of the WGSS Graduating Class of 2019. It was so lovely to see some former students walk the halls. They even played outside with our students before and during recess. A great time!
Today was our Bataille de Lip Synch. I can happily say that every group performed and did a great job. Bravo!
Today was also our Big Cleanout. Every student should be coming home with all their stuff from this year. You’re welcome. They should also have their Token of Appreciation from the JKE Staff for you. Thank you for everything this year!

Just a reminder that tomorrow is The Big Cleanup. We will be emptying out all our stuff and bringing it home. I suggest that everyone bring an extra bag or two.
Tomorrow is also our Lip Synch Battle! Both the presentations and the lyric analysis are due.
I am still collecting items for the class auction, which is taking place on Tuesday. Thanks in advance!
Talent Show 2019! Mad props to Levi, Trevin, Natalie and Ashlyn who performed for us today!
Class Auction was announced for next Tuesday. I sent an email to you this morning detailing some items that are always well received. Thank you in advance for your contribution!
Sports Day is tomorrow! We picked our teams, we know our colours, we should be ready to do our jobs tomorrow. Please come dressed (appropriately) ready for tomorrow! Sunscreen, water bottle, hat, lots of food etc.
Bataille de Lip Synch on Friday! Be ready!
The grade 7s spent most of the day preparing for Sports Day on Friday. Fingers crossed things go well on Wednesday!
The results of the Math test today were a little disappointing.
- orchestre demain (instruments not needed)
- Talent Show demain
Our Chemistry Exam was today. I have marked a few pages so far and it’s looking fairly decent. Many students are doing very well, which shows preparation and revision on their part. Bravo!
Monday is our Math Test on Circles. Here is the Revision Page for preparation.
Monday is also our Sports Day run through.
Tuesday is the Talent Show.
Wednesday is Sports Day.
Friday- Bataille de Lip Synch!
Band Concert Day! The matinee went well (it was warm though… wow). Tonight, grade 7s are instructed to arrive between 6:45 and 7 (earlier is fine), to the music room. We won’t be setting up our instruments until later in the evening. Devices are fine for the waiting time as long as appropriate usage is occurring. They are to be stored away during the performance, not in your pocket. I will hold on to them if you like. Please dress appropriately. Dark coloured clothes but not heavy! It’s going to be just as warm this evening!
Friday is our Chemistry exam. PLEASE STUDY. I do not use the word exam lightly. Use the green feuille de revision to help guide your studying!
Area of circles math is due Friday.
Cultus permission forms due Monday.
Math test Monday- all things circles. I will have a review sheet Friday.
Battaille de Lip Synch- next Friday!
Sorry for not posting yesterday. I attended Mme Fontaine’s Celebration of Life in the afternoon, which was lovely.
Tomorrow is the final Band Concert of the year. Matinee at 1:00pm and evening show at 7:00pm. Students are encouraged to wear black/dark colours. It’s going to be very warm tomorrow so dress lightly as well. Students are reminded that performing at the evening show is strongly recommended.
Students were assigned their final French project of the year. We are having a Lip Synch Battle! In groups, students have chosen their songs, and are preparing their presentations. If you have never seen an episode of the actual show, I suggest you check it out. Each group must also analyze the lyrics, identifying and explaining the figurative language found in the song (we are studying poetry this term). There are 4 more work periods (2 iPads and 2 laptops), and the Battle is happening next Friday, June 21.
Our final Science test is happening on Friday- La Chimie. I sent home a test outline on green paper yesterday, containing all the vocabulary/concepts we have studied this term.
We are currently studying circles in Math, and will be having our unit test on Monday. I will have a criteria sheet on Friday. There is a Math worksheet (area of circles) due tomorrow.
Cultus Lake permission forms and payment is due Monday!
