Agenda June 21


1.  Red and White Day - spirit assembly

2.  Green Team BBQ - Friday

3.  Math Test - study practise test

4.  Ancient Civilization/First Nations Feast - Tuesday, June 27
The boys and girls are celebrating the foods and costumes of the civilization they have studied this term. Next Tuesday we are having a feast, sort of a pot luck, where authentic dishes from their culture will be shared with their classmates. Substitutes are acceptable, if not neccessary. For example, ginger ale for ale, and chicken instead of guinea pig. The feast will start first break and continue until second break. We will also finish up our castle/village projects by having a catapult contest during this time.

The students are encouraged to dress similarly to the way the people of their civilization dressed. It should be a good time.
