Buckets and Broomsticks

We are doing our Water Walk fundraiser on Friday, June 8th.  Student teams will collect pledges and carry 2 buckets of water around the Swansea field.  We are asking that parents lend us some buckets and broomsticks for the day.  We also need some parent volunteers to supervise on the field while teams do their circuit.  Please let Ms. Legacy know if you can help

Grade 8 Graduation

Grade 8 graduation is on Tuesday, June 26th at 6:30 pm.  Invitation letters and ticket order forms were sent home with the grade 8 students last Friday so if you didn’t get these you might need to do a backpack cheque.  Electronic copies can also be emailed to you, by emailing the principal.  Graduation dance letters will be sent home soon.
