Oregon Trail Studies

We will continue to focus on our Oregon Trail Simulation until Wednesday, June 8th.  Throughout this work, the students will be able to do "side quests" in order to earn XP, gold, badges and items which can then be used towards their rank in the simulation.  This is a very different approach we are trying, but the students have been very enthusiastic so far.  


As we come up to the end of the year, we are trying to arrange ways of being outside to enjoy this fabulous weather.  The students really enjoyed travelling to Tugman park last Friday, so we will try to arrange a couple more similar outings.  In order to facilitate this, please ensure that you have granted permission for local walking trips and that the form is on file in the office.  If you need another copy of the form, please contact Kayla.  

Rummage Sale on Saturday, June 4th

The end of year, school-wide Rummage Sale is fast approaching and we are putting out the call for items.  If you are doing some spring cleaning, please be generous and donate your things to support the sale.  All items for the sale should be dropped off on Friday, June 3rd.  

As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns!
