Happy Father’s Day to everyone celebrating today. Hope you are enjoying some family time. I just wanted to thank everyone whom organized and volunteered at the Family Fun Night on Friday. Many families showed up and enjoyed the festivities. I think the PAC probably made some money. Thank you again!!

Only two weeks of school left in this year. There are many fun activities planned. Please make sure to sign any permission forms and send along the appropriate items for the field trips or fun days.

We are looking for a few more volunteers for the morning of June 21st to help with the bannock making station. If you are available, please let me know.
