Good-bye Grade 7s - bonne chance!
Good luck to our Grade 7 graduates. Most are heading off to Kits High to continue with their French immersion studies but some are heading off to mini schools (PW Mini, Churchill Ideal, King George Tech, Magee Sparts) and a couple are off to private schools for high school. We wish you all the best and hope you will come back to visit. Once a tiger, always a tiger! Thank you to Jon Benjamin Photography for the photos.
Sports Day was a roaring success!
Is this the start of a new winning streak? Team Red won the Tennyson Cup for the second year in a row.
The final standings were:
1st - Red
2nd - Yellow
3rd - Green
4th - Blue
Thank you to Mme Lorieau and the Grade 7s for organizing and running Sports Day.
A video of the Team Red cheer is below the photos ... sorry, only got that one since both of my daughters were red this year.

New books for home reading program
$1000 of PAC money bought around 250 books to supplement the home reading program for Primary Divisions ... thanks to the Learning Resource Centre for ordering the books.
Mme Christine also just ordered new large French atlases for the intermediate divisions with special funding approved at the PAC AGM.
Also on the way (more special funding), are some French rhyming dictionaries for the poetry sections in the older grades.
We will be ready with new supplies in September!
Thank you for the support so that PAC can make these extra purchases.
A school called 44 Sounds Orton-Gilingham Learning Studio (located at Oak & 21st) is offering summer camps for children with dyslexia or language learning struggles. It is to help kids boost and keep up their skills before the school year starts.

Thank you to all of the parents who brought food and helped set up & clean up as we said thank you to the wonderful Tennyson Staff by providing a lovely lunch for them on the last ProD day of the year. Barbara led the troops again this year ... thank you! The staff was very appreciative and well fed!
Here is VSB Trustee Janet Fraser's recent blog entry about the elementary band and strings program.
Spring Fling Photos
We seem to have photos of everything except the student performers at Spring Fling! The performers were entertaining and brave ... it is so nice to see the students on stage sharing their talents.
Thank you to all of the parent volunteers who made the event possible!
