The Colonsay School SRC hosted a fun opening assembly. Cole welcomed everyone back and pumped the spirit. A member from the Contractors working on the gym talked to us about safety. We made our new house teams and had our first competitions: a dance off and football throw. I was surprised to see how poor our football throws really are, and how great our dance moves really are. We did the famous Banana cheer and heard a speech about respect from Marlyse our President. We also had a relay race with bean bags. The SRC did a great job presenting our theme this year: Don’t Worry Be Happy!!

- Staffing Changes. . .
- We are very sad to announce that Ms. Dufour will be leaving our staff at the end of the school year. During her year at Colonsay School, Ms. Dufour has been the advisor for Yearbook and SRC and coached Jr. Boys Basketball. Her positive attitude and willingness to help everyone will definitely be missed. We wish her the very best in her teaching career.
- Miss Anderson and Mrs. Maes joined our staff to fill maternity leave positions. It didn’t take long for us to realize how incredibly lucky we were to have them on staff. Their warm smiles, caring personalities, and gift of working with children will be missed. Thank you to Miss Anderson for coaching Sr. Girls Volleyball and Jr./Sr. Curling and Mrs. Maes for coaching Cross Country and running our Solstice Track and Field program for the elementary students. Miss Anderson has accepted a grade 3 teaching position in Calgary and Mrs. Maes has accepted a position at Allan School. Our loss is definitely their gain. Congratulations!!!
- We welcomed Mrs. Hunter back from her maternity leave on May 7 and look forward to having Mrs. Brickner back in August.
- Danny Earl will be joining our staff in August as our Special Education teacher. He will also teach History 20, English 7/8 and Health in the grade 5/6 classroom (Semester 2). We look forward to working with you.
- School picture day for the 2018/2019 school year will be Friday, October 12th at 9:00 a.m.
Pre-school students are welcome. Picture retakes will be on Wednesday, November 7 at 9:00 a.m.
