Home / School News / Last two Weeks @ Journey June 18-27


Happy Father’s Day Weekend. This is it – the last 8 days of 2017-18 school year! Thank you to all parents, especially our PAC, for being so supportive. There are lots of activities planned and assignments to finish up as we begin the countdown. It’s a time of excitement and sometimes a little worry as students prepare for summer vacation and start wondering about next year. Enjoy the moments, but remember our expectations regarding behaviour remain the same.
