On Friday we had our final assembly of the school year and were able to say goodbye to the staff leaving Fieldcrest, including Ms. Manuge, Ms. Snedden, Ms. Bowins, Mrs. McCormick, Ms. Tramontozzi, Mrs. Ripley, Mrs. Gleben, Ms. Teoh, Mrs. Kennedy and Mr. Case. We wish you all the best next year as you begin new teaching adventures! We also said a special goodbye to Mrs. Robinson who is retiring. We will miss you all!

We also had a chance to watch the slideshow that was shown at the graduation ceremony on Tuesday night. Congratulations to all of our graduating Grade 8 students!

We wish all Falcons a safe, fun and relaxing summer! See you on September 2nd!

Pioneers for a Day!

Our Grade 3 students had a great time at the Simcoe County Museum yesterday. They spent the day at the museum’s Pioneer Village, where they dressed in pioneer clothing, watched a blacksmith in action, played pioneer games, churned butter and made candles. They even had a chance to experience what school was like in pioneer times…and had a very strict teacher!
