From the Principal’s Desk – June 7, 2012

Eco Schools

Swansea has attained Gold Eco status for the 2nd year in a row.  We scored even higher than last year and we will continue to work towards Platinum status for next year.  Thank you to Mr. Higgins, Ms. Munt and Ms. Soomet for all their hard work in helping to keep Swansea green.

Grade 8 Graduation

A reminder to parents that ticket orders for graduation are due to Mr. Pigeon by Friday, June 8th.  A further letter will be sent home early next week outlining details about the Graduation Dance, so a backpack check may be necessary again.

Grade 8 Camp is June 18 – 21st.  The week before we will be reviewing camp routines, packing lists, cabin assignments, etc. with the students.  The buses will depart at 9:00 am on Monday, June 18th so students need to arrive on time.  Buses will return @ 3:00 pm on Friday, June 22nd.

Monday, June 25th will be a regular school day for all grade 8 students.  There will be a graduation rehearsal in the morning and the afternoon will be spending cleaning out lockers ( a very scary activity) and general wind down.  Report cards will be distributed at the end of the day.

Tuesday, June 26th is Graduation Day so students are able to stay home and prepare for grad.  The graduation reception is from 5 – 6 pm and grad will start at 6:30 pm.  We ask that students arrive no later than 6:15 pm.

Wednesday, June 27th and Thursday, June 28th students are not expected to attend but some may wish to visit to gather left behind materials and help teachers in their classrooms.

Please contact the principal if you have any questions about graduation.
