Announcements June 11 - 15

YEAH COBRAS!!!!!  A big CONGRATULATIONS to all our CMES students and staff who were part of our Track & Feild team this year.  They represented our school well and several of our participants placed in their area of competition.  A great time was had by all!  Special thanks goes out to our coaches and Mrs. Vickery who was part of the planning team this year.  Great job - everyone!

A special note:  One of our students, Alex M not only placed first in the running of the 1500 metres on Wednesday evening in the Bantam division, but also set a new county record!  Way to go Alex!

The BAKING CLUB is well underway baking up a storm for our grade 8 graduation celebration next Tuesday, June 26th.  This year our School Council has taken on preparing for the refreshment time at the end of the ceremony.  WE ARE LOOKING FOR a few parents who could help us in a couple of ways....
1.  If you have any spare time during the day on Tuesday, June 26th, would you be willing to help us cut up squares and prepare treat plates and fruit trays for the evening?  Or...
2.  Would you be free on the actual evening of graduation from approx.  6:30 - 9:00 p.m. to help organize and run the refreshment time? 
IF YOU ARE ABLE TO HELP IN ANYWAY, please contact Barb White at ASAP.  Thanks for considering helping for this very special evening.

STUDENT COUNCIL is busy planning a special play day for our primary and junior students this coming Friday afternoon.  It's gonna be a great time!

The grade 2 students held their annual "Releasing of the Butterflies" last Wednesday.

The grade 6 French Exchange students welcomed their friends from Quebec on Wednesday.  Mrs. Lenny tells us that it was a great experience for everyone!

Cookie day was switched from Friday to Monday of this week due to the Track and Field meet on Friday.

A special Thanks to Ms. Bouwmeester who headed up a special "Fun Day" on Friday for all those students not involved in the Track and Field meet or in the French exchange.  A fun day of games, bubbles and freezies were enjoyed by all who were here!
