Volunteer Tea & Band Performance

I want to thank those volunteers for coming to the GES Volunteer Tea yesterday afternoon. It was a very nice event.

Today we had the opportunity to hear both the Grade 6 and Grade 7 Bands. They were both great. Thank you for the great job Mr. Angelus and students!

Tomorrow is our GES Sports Day. It will be a fun day with multi-grade teams working together in an atmosphere of fun and cooperation.

For your information the PAC will be providing a hot dog , water and a freezy to all students gratis. Other items will be available for purchase at a loonie or less.

Enjoy the sunshine.

Sock Hop & Frogs

When I was visiting the primary classes this morning some grade 6 students were informing Mrs. Sali's grade 4 girls about the upcoming sock hop. This sock hop is a fund raiser for the library.

When I visited Ms. Kraneburg's class I saw some of the excellent work that the students were doing. The picture above is an informative piece of writing about frogs-- great picture Harris!

We will be having our Volunteer Appreciation Tea over lunch hour. For those unable to attend, I just want to pass on my thanks for all the great things our parent and other volunteers do to make GES a better place for learning. The contribution that you make is truly amazing! Thank you so much!

Balloon Badminton

Mrs. Kopek had her class working on badminton skills but using balloons. My timing was great as I had to tie off several balloons. I had a chance to play some balloon badminton with Alistar-- it was good fun.

It sure is nice to see some sunshine. We are hoping for some continued good weather the rest of the week, since we will be having our annual GES Sports Day this Friday, June 4th, rain or shine.

Just a reminder that we will be having a volunteer tea for parents and others who have helped out around GES-- this is happening tomorrow, Wednesday, June 2nd fom 12:10-12:50, in the library.

I look forward to seeing many of you there.

Until tomorrow.

ESS Band Plays

Mr. Tom Kellough and the ESS Stage Band played a concert for GES this afternoon. About 3/4 of the band are former GES students-- what a tribute to our music program.

We are hoping for a change in the weather since we have our Sports Day scheduled for this Friday.
I will keep you posted.

A Mid-Summer Night's Dream Rehearsal

Ms. Duncan's class continues to rehearse A Mid-Summer Night's Dream. The actors are very confident and it seems like it is coming together really well.

Keep up the good work!

Until later.

Aboriginal Education Stations

Mrs. Pugh organized four stations for Aboriginal Education today-- they were: pemmican pounding, bannock recipes, sash making and beading. The students were really engaged and excited about the activity. Thank you for sharing your gifts with our students Mrs. Pugh!

I would encourage parents to talk to your child(ren) about some of the Aboriginal Education activities that they have been doing.
