I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend and an amazing Fathers Day.  It just occurred to me that with all the excitement on Thursday, I forgot to remind you that we were swimming tomorrow at Massey Pool.  So please be sure to bring your swim stuff so you can cool off in the pool tomorrow afternoon.  Please also pass this message on to any of the other Grade 8 students!

Thanks and see you tomorrow,

Mr. B
