We ended our Spell-a-thon Fundraiser with our prize ceremony on May 2. Congratulations to all students for making this year's fundraiser a success and to all those who received prizes. The middle school team was our top fundraisers for the first year ever and many were awarded for their efforts by being permitted to pie Mr. Bosma and Mr. Keating for raising $100. Alex Saunders was our top fundraiser for the whole school. Thank you to everyone for your efforts.

Earth Rangers' visit to Nelson Rural School was a big success. Mark and Josh brought our animal friends: Daisy (skunk), Maverik (American Kestrel), Kookatoo (Kookaburra), and Hook (Red-tailed Hawk) to enducate us on the importance of helping to protect animals in the wild. The Kookaburra entertained us with its laugh, while Marverik and Hook showed off their flying skills above our heads. It was a great presentation and they encourage all of us to become Earth Rangers. Please take a look at the brochure sent home for more information on this program.
Students will be attending this assembly on First Nations Culture for the morning. This is a cultural and social gathering including drumming, dancing, and song.
Because of the end time of the assembly, we are asking K-2 students to bring a bag lunch on Friday as they will not be using the cafeteria on this day. It would also be helpful if their snack was labelled with their name so the teacher can hang on to it for them.
