Good afternoon. Less than 3 weeks away from June 4 when we will no longer assign work to students. We can do this! I know it has been hard for all of the stakeholders (staff, students and parents) but I continue to be impressed that you, the parents, have given the school and how well my staff is moving forward through this unplanned experience. We can definitely see the light at the end of the tunnel.


As I wrote last week, staff will be sharing progress reports with students today. Please take some time and look them over with your child(ren). We will do this the same way at the end of the year, too. Next year, however, our new reporting software will be able to send them directly to you.


Please remind your child(ren) to work on their Time Capsule this week. At the very least, they should all share the capsule back with me by the end of the day. The Time Capsule, however, does not need to be finished this week. They may continue to add/edit as they go through the spring. I will not make a final copy of their time capsule until later in June. It would be a shame if they did not have this to look back on when they graduate from high school.


We did our own version of the poetry contest this year. Mrs. Barbour, Mrs. Nicol, Ms. Scudder, Mrs. Walsh and Ms. Goyette were the judges who determined this year’s winners. A lot of students took part in the contest which was very nice to see. Here are the winners:

Grade 5 - “A Happy Poem” by Lilly Sanborn

Grade 6 - “Letting Go” by Kylie Kelly

Grade 7 - “Family” by Kaitlyn O’Brien

Grade 8 - “Untitled” by Emma McBride

Overall GMS Winner - “Untitled” by Georgia Eckhardt (7th grade)

Congrats to all of the winners and many kudos to all those who participated!


Take care of yourselves and have a great weekend.


Peter
