The Kinder team would like to say a BIG THANK-YOU to all our Kinder families for a wonderful school year. It was nice to see a number of you last week at our year end party and we wish everyone a wonderful summer!
Library Books - Last call!
If there are any remaining library books hiding in Kinder bedrooms or backpacks please send them in this week.
SK students will be introduced to singing "Oh Canada" this week. Every morning, grades 1 - 6 sing "Oh Canada" on the yard or Grand Hall as a group prior to heading to their classrooms. Homeroom teachers meet them at their line-up spots and Mrs.Clayton, the principal, or Madame Marthita, the vice-principal lead them in song. Kinders will be joining them for 1 or 2 sessions this week to give them an idea of what to expect come September.

All year 1 and year 2 students will be taking home an envelope with their KCOL inside this Tuesday, June 27th. Parents with questions or concerns are to contact their homeroom teams.

Students have been practising hard for their time to shine on the Hilson stage. There are 35 acts this year!
Hilson's Annual Ice Cream Dance Party & Red & White day - Thurs. June 29th
As per Hilson tradition, students will be treated to ice cream by our School Council on the last day at 1:10pm. Everyone will then have a dance party out on their respective yards. As the last day of school is so close to Canada's 150 celebration, we are also making it a red and white spirit day. Send your Kinder to school dressed in red and white.
