End of Year Exams and Activities

Hello Families,

I would like to let you know about some important dates as we approach the end of the school year:

April 23 - FSL Exam begins

May 15th - ELA exam begins

June 6th - End of Year trip to Quebec City

June 12-16th -Math Exam

June 21st  at 1 pm  - Graduation Ceremony 

We're looking forward to a busy but productive two months, and in order to help your child be as well-prepared as possible, you can help with the following:
-review and sign all tests that come home
-ask your child to see what they are studying in math, and have them explain what they've learned
-continue to supervise their RAZ Kids and Reflex Math practice
-ensure your child gets enough sleep (they are growing awfully fast!)
-send a water bottle and an extra snack to school
-avoid absences if at all possible
-encourage your child to get fresh air and exercise after school

While these exams are important, your child's health and wellbeing are more important. Please encourage them to do their best, but remind them that these exams are only one of many ways they show us what they've learned.

Thank you for your help in making this time of year go as smoothly as possible for your child.

Warm regards,
Kathy Napier
