C.C. McLean P.S. Colts Going Strong!

by Rachael Orford

Wow! Less than two months of school left. Where did the time go? Before we know it, it will be summer!

Speaking of the end of the year. The Grade 8s had a fundraiser at the end of April for their end of the year class trip. It was a soup n’ bun fundraiser. The total amount of money raised for this class trip was almost $600! The soup was so good that they sold every last drop.

Thank you to all the students and teachers that worked so hard on the artwork for our spring concert. From the hand and feed lobsters, to the landscapes, the cupcakes to the balloons. The gym was decorated beautifully!

Many classes were going different places this past week. The ELK, and SK/1 classes went to Lakeview school to see a performance of The Little Mermaid, on Monday, May 8. Then, on Tuesday, May 9, the Grade 2/3s and 3/4s went to see a ballet at Manitoulin Secondary School.

Yesterday, May 11, the Junior and Intermediate Island soccer tournament was held. The Junior team which was made up of students from grades  5 and 6 went to Wikwemikong for their games, and the Intermediate teams traveled to Mindemoya (Central Manitoulin Public School). Thank you to the coaches, Mr. Lindsay, Ms. Burlein, and Mr. Smith! The results will be in next week’s column.

Next Friday, you will see students with the wackiest hair ever. Can you guess why? It is wacky hair day! There will be hair of all colours, with pencils, pens and all sorts of other stuff in them. Parents: there is no need to brush your child’s hair that morning.

Joke of the week: Son: “Mom can I get twenty bucks?”

Mom: “Does it look like I am made of money?”

Son: “Well isn’t that what M.O.M. stands for?”

I am wishing all mothers, grandmothers, and aunts a Happy Mother’s Day. I hope you get a bouquet of flowers and breakfast in bed. Maybe even an extra cup of coffee. To all the kids out there: don’t forget to do the dishes!

Upcoming events include Swim to Survive for Grades 4 and 5, Wacky Hair Day, and the Victoria Day holiday!

Until next time, “Dream and Believe, Learn and Achieve!”
