Hi Parents,

First off, let me tell you that you were all correct that the School Messenger and # was not working on Friday June 1. Huge complications across the district and the District has hopefully resolved all the issues and Monday June 4th it should actually function! Thank you for all your patience and all your calls and emails to Bev and I. We are so sorry that the transition from School Connects to School Messenger did not go very smoothly.

PARENTS- PLEASE RETURN ANY JUNIPER RIDGE JERSEY'S you find in your child's drawer or closet! We really need all of them back!

Please check the lost and found! It has grown again and if these items are not claimed by the last week of school we do send them to a charity.

Virtue of the Week: Responsibility. Please talk to your child at home about this important virtue this week.

Our PEOPLE IN MOTION CAMPAIGN runs June 4-8th. Please send your child with a small donation to put in the jar at the office. The Leadership students have chosen this community cause for their June focus.

On Monday June 4- Harriet Broadbent will be Principal for the Day! Thanks to her parents who had the highest bid at the PAC Spring Social and won this opportunity for Harriet.

Our BOOK FAIR starts TUESDAY this week! Please come pick up summer reading materials for your children while supporting our school library.

TRU SPORT CAMP CLINICS will be happening this week both Tuesday and Wednesday.

On Wednesday- Klassen and Rymer's classes go to Gymnastics. Our Gr. 7's head down to Valleyview Secondary for the morning to see their new school! Gr. 6's have their IMMUNIZATIONS- please ensure your gr. 6 student is in attendance.
