The concert today went really well! Our grade 7s sounded great! Kudos to the students who got up to do a solo during the last song! We also got to hear the other schools play, as well as the Gr 7 Honour Band that WGSS runs. They played an AMAZING rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody!

During PE today, Danika and Bela taught us a dance lesson, focusing on warm up and technique that you find in many dance classes. Thanks to all the students who participated with a good, positive attitude. Others need some serious improvement in that area.

Hope you all had a lovely Victoria Day weekend! My family and I went to Portland (I had never been) to visit with my inlaws and it was lovely!

Tomorrow is Playland! I outlined the following for tomorrow:

  • We leave at 9:00am sharp.
  • Bring food or money for food (line ups are always long so be prepared to wait)
  • NO FLIP FLOPS OR LOOSE SHOES on rides. Runners are best.
  • Dress sensibly, it’s looking like it will be warm, layers are advised.
  • A small backpack should be enough. Don’t bring more than you are willing to carry all day.
  • At NO POINT during the day tomorrow should you be alone. If I see you alone, you will be my best friend for the rest of the day.
  • Students are not required to remain with their car group/parent, however it is advised to check with them periodically.
  • At 1:50pm- meet at Hell’s Gate to leave.
  • Students are allowed to have their phones however they are to be used appropriately- do not take photos/videos of others without their consent, no posting to social media etc.

À demain!

Walnut Grove is once again offering their Gator Shades program, a week of summer spent exploring and experiencing WGSS before September. All of the feedback I’ve received from past students who have participated has been extremely positive. It is definitely recommended for students who are anxious about the transition, but is open to all future grade 8 WGSS students. Below is the info poster, Mrs Sollows has the application at the office.

Les Devoirs:

  • TWU permission and $12
  • Math- 2 assignments (package and double sided sheet)
  • Camp Essaie- due ASAP (share doc with me)
  • Carnaval tonight! 6pm-9pm (unfortunately I have a prior commitment and won’t make it)

Just a reminder about camp and medications. ALL medication your child is bringing, EVEN TYLENOL AND IBUPROFEN needs to be given to me. Your child will be able to take them at camp as needed, but we need to keep them with us and not in the cabins. The only exceptions are inhalers and epipens. I won’t be here tomorrow but Mme Chan knows what to do with them when they are brought in.

Friday is a Pro D Day, see you Monday Morning!

Today we saw Les PeeWees. I enjoyed it! There was a bit of rough language, but the story was really interesting and powerful. There were. many instances of dialogue that were tricky, but easy enough to understand. I had the students respond to the movie today, you should ask them what they thought of it too!

Tomorrow is Track and Field Day! Appropriate dress, including runners is absolutely necessary, as well as a water bottle. And don’t forget sunscreen! We will be outside basically all day.

We had our last meeting before camp, reminding students of a few things. First, everyone’s gear goes through the heat treatment room, so pack accordingly. Toiletries should be packed in a easy to remove bag so nothing melts. Sleeping bag and pillow should be packed in a labelled garbage bag, and bring an extra bag! No cell phones or any other electronics except a non-precious camera. Also no snacks, we don’t want to attract mice/rats or other animals. Food is plentiful at camp, no one goes hungry. Please arrive Monday morning between 7:30 and 7:45 am and check in with me.
