Last Friday, Mrs. Laird had tryouts for this year’s track and field team. Below is a list of the children from our class who made the team. There is one short practice Tuesday afterschool and then the event will take place on Wednesday, May 30.
Unfortunately, I have had to make the difficult decision to cancel our field trip to the Belfast Mini-Mills/Victoria Park on Thursday, May 31, due to a lack of drivers. This will be a regular day of school.
Please remember to send in $3 to help cover the expenses of our Diamond Jubilee Garden Party. I would appreciate receiving this money by Friday, so I can shop on the weekend. The Diamond Jubilee Garden Party is on Monday, June 4.
Here are a few updates to our schedule:
Tuesday, May 29 = Track and Field practice from 3-3:30pm
Wednesday, May 30 = Elementary Track Meet at UPEI (rain or shine)
