Last Week of School

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mr. White @ 8:48 pm

We started the last week of school, today,  (3 days) before holidays and some nice things have happened.  Last night a wide age of carolers came by our house and sang 3 Christmas Carols.  It was cold but the young singers sure held their own with the old timers!  What a treat!  Another enjoyable time was the Gr. 6’s musical presentation to their parents at noon on Monday.  It was about the Trial of the Big Bad Wolf.  What great singers, actors (actresses) and performers.  It was a one time performance and very well done.  The Grade 1 to 3 class were so excited this morning about being able to participate in the Mini Stick tournament.  You could hear them cheering loudly for everyone in the gym.  This tournament is being organized by the Gr. 7 class and they are putting all the proceeds towards the Gr. 6 class fund raising efforts for World Vision.  Also to note,  High School Student Government hosted a Christmas Caroling competition in the lobby.  There are sure excellent singers in our school, some are trying to catch up!  What do you enjoy about the last week of school before Christmas Holidays?



  1. My favorite thing about the last week of school before the holidays is how happy everyone is. Everyone is always in a good mood and smiling. I love all of the decorations the high school has put up in the school. It gives it a very christmasy feel to the school. I also really enjoy the candy cane sales, it’s nice to receive and give candy canes and see all of the happy faces after receiving them. I know I was very surprised and happy to receive one. I love this time of year when everyone is in such a giving, cheerful mood and I wish that it would stay this way all throughout the year.

  2. The last week of school before a major holiday is a great time. It really seems to bring out the fun sides of the teachers and although there always seems to be some sort of last minute assignments due there never ceases fun times and good feelings spread out through the entire week. Some may think that the last week is a distraction, and in part that is true, but it truly is a wonderful time for teachers and students to connect and see what some people are like when they are more relaxed. The mood around the school is another great thing. Everyone is relaxed and no one is stressed, angry or in a bad mood (Except those who forgot their homework.). I think the high school has done a great job keeping the fun going with the 12 days of Christmas celebration. It is a good way to give the students something to do at lunch.
