As we enter June we are aware that our days together for this year are limited but we are acutely aware of how many incredible things we have planned and how much more learning we have to do. We have successfully completed EQAO with our Grades 3 and 6’s! This week our Track and Field athletes are off to compete in the Area meet and our Junior students are also off to the Vaughan Public Library to do some learning about coding. Our Primary students are headed to Safety Village and our Grade 3’s are also going to the Swim to Survive program. The fun and busy-ness continues in the weeks that follow so keep checking back for more information.
June is National Indigenous History Month in Canada. As we continue to learn the truth and work towards reconciliation, we take time to honour the stories, achievements and resilience of Indigeneous Peoples.
June is Pride Month around the globe. This month and every month, we include those of us who are part of the 2SLGBTQAI+ community and we partner together to make Bakersfield a safe place for all to learn and grow.
June 21st is the first day of summer and is the National Indigenous Peoples Day. On this day we will commemorate the heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding acheivements of First Nations, Inuit, and Metis peoples.
June 26 is Eid al-Adha, or the Feast of Sacrifice. Wishing our families who celebrate, an Eid al-Adha Mubarak!
