Dear REDFISH Families,

 

It’s hard to believe that May is already upon us! The year is flying by, and I am glad to be travelling with such a fine CREW at REDFISH Elementary school! Here are a couple of highlights and heads-ups coming to you at lightspeed over the internet on this ‘May the Fourth’ of 2024…

 

REDFISH GOLFS?!

 

REDFISH teed off on a fresh set of school-wide golf lessons for students in Grades 1-6 this past week. The Grade 1 students from Mrs. Heddon and Ms. Daniela’s class joined Mrs. Dehnel’s class on the practice green and driving range at the beautiful BALFOUR GOLF COURSE where they received pro tips and positive reinforcement from course staff. Special thank you to Craig Wilkinson (General Manager) for spearheading the program!

 

BASKETBALL PLAY-DAY X CHAMBER of MINES (HR5)

 

Students in Ms. Hodgson’s Homeroom 5 class wrapped up their week with a basketball play-day at WILDFLOWER followed by a trip to the Chamber of Mines on Hall Street where they learned more about the mining industry... and the various rocks they brought along with them.

 

TRACK + FIELD MEET VOLUNTEERS (Friday, May 31, 2024)

 

REDFISH will be looking for parent volunteers to help run a concession at the Grade 4/5 Track + Field Meet at REDFISH on Friday, May 31, 2024. Please mark your calendars and stay tuned for more information to follow.
