Hello … it is not often that I am organized enough to send off The Week Ahead on Friday but I finally managed to achieve it for the final week of the school year!
On behalf of the staff, I would like to thank each and every one of our parents for your support over the year. We really appreciate the wonderful home-school relationship we have with our families and hope you have a great summer spent enjoying time together. I would like to encourage you to read to and with your child every day; and to have the older ones also read independently throughout the summer. This is so important to helping you child maintain or extend their current reading level.
Last week I shared information about the staff that was leaving our building and I, unfortunately, have another name to add to the list. Mrs. Lavoie has accepted a Vice Principal position at Duncan Cran so will be leaving us at the end of this year. It is an exciting opportunity for Mrs. Lavoie but she will be greatly missed in our school community.
At this time of the year, we also prepare ourselves to say goodbye to students who will not be returning to Bert Ambrose next year. This year’s group of Grade 6 students has a special place in my heart as many of them were in Kindergarten the year I first came to Bert Ambrose as Vice Principal. It has been such an honour to watch them grow into the young people they have become and I am really going to miss the daily connection with them. I hope they will come back to visit and let me know how they are doing at Middle School. We also say goodbye to students who are moving away from our area and I would like to wish these families all the best in their new homes and new schools.
We have 3.5 days of school next week and a multitude of special activities occuring; including the annual Talent Show at 1:00 pm on Wed. June 26 and the Year End Assembly at 10:30 on Thurs. June 27. We hope you are able to join us for these events.
Lastly, I need to send out another plea for parents/guardians to come and check the school’s LOST AND FOUND. We have so many items here – including shoes, bike helmets, a backpack, and many clothing items. These items will be taken to a local second-hand store on the afternoon of Thursday, June 27th if they are not claimed.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
