Here we are in the middle of April and I have lots to report on!  I missed my chance to tell you all about our aWESome ski day at Wapiti Ski Resort.  Each student from grades 1 to 6 got a chance to choose snowboarding or skiing.  We boarded charter busses for the long trip and arrived at Wapiti, ready to hit the slopes.  Everybody took a lesson depending on their level of experience, and then we were free to ski!  There were many hills such as Mickey Mouse, Wapiti Way, Dragon’s Tail and my favorite, Captain Hook! The weather was great, the sun was shining, and everyone had a blast!  

The Pre-K and Kindergarten classes were not able to go skiing due to Wapiti’s regulations, but they had a super fun trip too!  They went to Foam Lake’s community theatre for a movie.  They watched “The Peanuts” movie, and had popcorn and drinks for a treat.  In the afternoon the kindergartens had the whole school to themselves and enjoyed a super special center time spread around the school.
Report Cards went out on March 23rd.  We had an assembly to celebrate the students who achieved academic awards.  The following academic awards were handed out:

April 13th was Friendship day in honour of International Anti-Bullying Day.  On this day each class room was paired with another class to be their buddies.  We were allowed to cross the playground to play with our buddies at recess, and we had a period in the afternoon where we did a friendship activity together.  Everyone wore pink, and we had a big picnic together in the gym with our smoothies.
April is not over yet so get excited for our upcoming events.
