Welcome, May! I am so happy to see the sun shining (at last!), and the snow piles disappeared very quickly in the warmth last week (also, at last!!). The days are getting so long, all the snow is off the garden, and the tulips in front of the school are going to start blooming any day now. I feel like I have run a months- long marathon and have emerged victorious on the other side of the finish line!

We hope you will be able to join us Wednesday, May 2, at the school from 5:00-7:00pm for our Family Games Night. We will be serving supper at 5:30pm, and would like to thank our Grade 5/6 students and their parents for providing cookies for dessert!! Please bring a favourite family board or card game to play in our gym/hallway, and enjoy the evening with your family; our teachers will take care of the cooking and cleaning up!

Our Grade 9 students return from Quebec on Saturday, May 5, and we can hardly wait to hear their stories and see the pictures of their adventure!

It is looking like there is a chance Track Meet could actually happen on May 11 (I

wouldn’t have guessed that a couple of weeks ago). Assuming the weather continues to cooperate, they will be headed to Grande Prairie that morning to represent our school at Legion Field for the day.

The SAC Meeting was rescheduled to May 14 at 7:00pm; please make an effort to be there! Babysitting will be provided for those that need it.

Author Marty Chan will be here May 15 for presentations for our Grades 1-6 students (Teepee Creek School will be coming to join us for the morning as well).

We are very excited to have the County of Grande Prairie here May 23-24 for the Bezanson Streetscape Project! They will be unveiling the winner of the Grade 4-7 Streetscape Contest and painting two designs on the pavement in Bezanson. Congratulations and good luck to the finalists: Kara Radomske, Hannah Wiens, Alandra Humbke, a collaborative work by Laurel van der Giessen/ Mackenzie Ewert/Hannah McRae, Taryn Cissell, and Katie Ewert.
