A Big Day in Grade Five!

Many thanks to Mr Hamel for the photo.
What a great day it was today!
Congratualtions to the students who ran in the ETSB XCountry Race (2km of the hilliest course these students have seen yet). Who knows, perhaps a lifelong love of running was born as these young athletes tore up the course. You should all be very proud of yourselves!

And also...

A hearty congratulations also goes to Lloyd, who won the city-wide "Firefighter for a Day" contest. Not only did he get to drop the puck during the face-off of the Voltigeurs' game last weekend, but he will also spend an ENTIRE day with the firefighters this Friday (yes, he will miss school - with our blessing). He wrote an excellent essay and deserves this wonderful honour. Enjoy!

On another note, I have lost my voice, and will not be at school for at least the nest two days. Let me take this opportunity to wish you a very happy Thanksgiving. Make the most of the long weekend!

Congrats to all the runners. This is a challenging race and one you can be very proud of participating in.

Congratulations to Lloyd for winning the "Firefighter for a Day" essay contest amongst many writers and many schools. What a great experience and exciting day you will have.
