June 17-21

The weeks just seem to get busier!

Thanks to everyone who has supported our pizza fundraiser. We still have some pizza coupons for sale at the office for $12 each. This entitles you to a medium pizza at Panago. The PAC gets a portion of all sales. If you have already purchased some and would like some more, that is now possible! Come and see Ms. Edgell at the office, or make arrangements with Steff Bland.

This is the last full week of school and learning is continuing at a fast pace!

Wednesday June 19 is our Waterslide day, thanks to the support of PAC. We will be leaving here at 9:45 and classes will be hard at work before that:) If parents and siblings wish to join us at the slides you are welcome to do so, but will need to pay at the front counter.

Thursday June 20: Grade 5 students and Mr. Jakobsen are headed to Herald’s Park for the day.

Friday June 21 is National Aboriginal Day and we will be celebrating with various activities throughout the day.

Monday June 24 is our scheduled Fun Day. Students will be in multi-age groups and will be participating in fun events throughout the day. Pizza orders went home last week- please make sure to have them returned by June 20.

The end of May? Wow- how did that happen?

So much is going on at Salmon Arm West. We have been busy getting gardens planted and learning about traditional plants and their uses. We have also been practicing for track and field and selecting the team to represent us at the district meet. We have released our Chinook salmon into Palmer creek and who knows- maybe we will see them spawn in a few years:)
