The current group of grade 7 parents are not the type to let a strike get in the way of their children's elementary school graduation ceremony. Thank you to many, many parents for pulling this off and a huge thank you to Mme Lavoie for all of her support. The grade 7s and their parents were so thrilled that she could attend and add the right amount of Tennyson flair to the event. Sadly, the teachers were missed but photos were shared with them.
This event never would have happened without the following people (thank you!):
Dianne & Linda (you will both be missed as you move on)
Melina, Michelle, Quincy, Andreas (wow - what a decorating team!)
Mme Lavoie & DJ Jackson
Toni, Shauna, Jane, Nona, Patrice, Laurie
Danica (thanks for the Van Dusen rental)
Veronica Ross (a grade 6 parent who came to help with the food serving)
The grade 7s looked stunning and had a chance to share favourite Tennyson memories before they received their elementary diplomas. It was a wonderful sense of closure to 8 years at Tennyson. A lovely lunch was shared with parents and the students danced (well, the girls did at least) to the tunes of DJ Jackson.
We would like to extend a huge shout out to Grade 7 student Max Botham who put together two year end slide shows (one for K - Gr3 and one for Grades 4-7). The students were shown the slideshows in the gym on Friday. The amount of cheering and calling out of names of those on screen makes us realize how important this is for the Tennyson students. Thanks Max for your many hours of work on these slideshows ... everyone appreciates it!
This message is from Shaughnessey Heights Church and we are posting it here solely due to the offer of childcare ... they are offering free childcare to the community on upcoming strike days. Please contact them directly for more information or to register.

The following is a message from Ruth Anderson, our Strings teacher:
Dear Tennyson Strings Parents,
Due to the cancelation of school/classes on Wednesday, I will be unable to collect instruments or summer rental forms. Mme. Lavoie has agreed to allow students and/or parents to return the instruments to the school to be stored in the strings/music room until I can organize them. If you are renting the instrument for the summer, please fill out the summer rental form (another copy is attached if you need it) and leave that form along with the cheque in my box. All instruments or summer rental forms need to be returned by this Friday, June 13th. If you have any specific questions concerning your own situation, don't hesitate to email me. Thank you very much for a great year together!
