posted Jun 11, 2018, 9:40 AM by David Willoughby ‎[Staff]‎

Good Evening Gator Families!

Here we are in June, and the days at Sam Sherratt are getting busier and busier!

On Monday our grade 6-8 students who joined our track and field team participated in track day at Nelson High School. Thank you for all your hard work Mr. Pearson, Mr. Kryzanowski, Mr. Kerschner and all the students who worked hard to push through practices and try outs. The excellent news is….we just received the CHAMPION BANNERS...we won for Boys grade 8 and Girls grade 7!! Go Gators!!

We are so proud of you!

Thank you to all the parents who joined us on Monday night for our last parent council meeting for the year. Thank you for all of your support and hard work this year!

Both girls and boys soccer teams played in games this week. Practices continue as they get ready for upcoming tournaments. Go Gators!

Our grade 3 students enjoyed a day at Springridge Farm; good weather and fun at a local hot spot.

Our Kindergarten students enjoyed Mountsberg, outdoor learning and exploring.

An Annishanbee Knowledge Guide joined us on Monday to speak to several classes about what relationships, with each other and the natural world mean to the First Nations people. Students learned ways to change how we look at the relationships in our own lives, and how we can improve them through communication and listening more carefully to what is happening around us. Our students were inspired to be more mindful of their interactions, and how to develop a deeper understanding of First Nations beliefs.

We welcome our grade 8 students back this evening from their trip to Ottawa. I am sure they will return tired, with many exciting memories. Thank you to our staff who organised (Mr. Fox) and the staff who joined the trip to make it a successful experience for our students. May you all get much needed rest this weekend!

In Partnership,

Maggie Parker, Principal

Bita Watts - Vice Principal

and the Staff of Sam Sherratt
