Festival du Phoenix

Festival du Phoenix

The Festival du Phoenix was also held on February 8th.  The weather was cold and some adjustments needed to be made but regardless of the weather, everyone had a great time!

This very special activity could not have been implemented without the help of every adult in the building and numerous parent volunteers.  I especially want to extend a very WARM thank you to the parents and teachers who were responsible for outside activities.  It was not the most pleasant of days and I am deeply grateful for your contributions to the ice wall, the sash fence, the tobogganing, the Voyageur tracking and the tug-of-war stations. As Helen Keller stated: “Alone we can do so little.  Together we can do so much.”
As well, I would like to thank all the families who donated jam, butter, marshmallows and bannock.  There was a panic request for bannock on that Monday morning and a few of our parents went home and baked bannock so that we had enough to serve to all the children.  Thank you so much to everyone for your help.
Thank you to Parent Council who provided the hot chocolate and cups to accompany the bannock treat.
Thank you, everyone for a very successful afternoon!

Enjoy the wonderful pictures taken by Mr. Johnston.
