Wednesday – It was FUN DAY!!! Thank you so much to our parent volunteers who came to help!! It was a great day and it was fantastic to see all the smiling faces and laughter. A couple classes went to Thetis Lake and tried paddle boarding.

Thursday and Friday were dedicated to our Jouro Soccer tournament (think Euro Cup, but Journey style). Amazing work by Mr. Vine in his organization and thank you to the EMCS soccer academy leadership students who came to help ref the games and appearances by players from the Pacific Football Club.
