May Update

Wow! May! With the beginning of May here, things are starting to ramp up. We have several big things happening in Grade 8. Please have a look and if you have any questions, feel free to email me at gyoung@scdsb.on.ca or give me a call at 705 526 4208.

Ottawa

Our trip is approaching quickly. If you still have outstanding payments please send in the balance to the office in the form of cash or cheque, as the online cash payment option is now closed. If there are any challenges regarding payments, please contact Mr. Bell or myself. We have had a successful year with our pizza fundraising efforts, so may be able to help cover the some of the cost of  students' purchased meals. Please stay posted for an update on this.

Students will be provided with access to a packing checklist  this week, or next. 

Graduation

Just a reminder that the date for Graduation is Monday, June 25th. The ceremonies will begin at 6:30 pm. The Bayview portion will consist of ceremonies and student recognition, followed by a 3 song Dance at the school. This will consist of a parent / student dance, a fast dance and a slow dance. A few parents are looking at organizing an after party. They will provide you with information when things are confirmed. 

Inquiry Based Learning

We are about to begin another integrated assignment. Students may choose between a topic that is related to environmental challenges or social justice issues. As always, this and several other classroom assignments / tasks can be shared with you, by your child, though Google Classroom.
