Dear Parents and Guardians,
There are many events happening as we countdown to the end of the school year. The staff and students have met the new Vice Principal for next year, Mr. Brad Toews. Mr. Toews came last Friday to meet as many staff and students as possible. He is looking forward to coming here in September.
Our students enjoyed a great week of Gym Sense with Shoane. Today is our final “Books For Me” this year. It is a great program that provides quality books for each student. We are so fortunate to have this program at Tillicum.
I have been invited to the Grade 4 luncheon on Wednesday. What a great honour as space is limited and invitations are coveted. This is just for our grade 4 students and a few staff members, and is served and organized by our grade 3 students.
I am looking forward to the Talent Show on Friday. I hear Mr. Koe is quite the showman. Parents, if you are able to join us at 1:30 PM on Friday, please be on time as the show will start right away.
The weather is very hot this week, so be sure to send your children with a water bottle, sunscreen, a hat, and cool clothing. Summer is almost here, but we have summer weather happening!
From the office:
I apologize for the late “Friday email message” as I’ve been away.
WALKATHON PLEDGE MONEY: The PAC has asked us to pass on a message that there are still a lot of Walkathon pledge sheets and money that have not been turned in. The deadline was last Friday for your children to be counted in the draw but it has been extended to today at 3:10 PM. The PAC would appreciate any additional Walkathon funds to be turned in by the end of the week, so they can complete their paperwork before the end of the school year. Thank you all for your efforts to make this year’s Walkathon a success to raise money for our school programs.
