June’s Newsletter

Principal’s Greeting

 June kicks off with Grad Week. It is a momentous event in the school’s calendar and we hope that you will be able to join us for the Graduation Ceremony that starts at 1pm on Saturday June 4th. As there are 17 Grads this year the ceremony will finish at about 3.30-4pm with tea served up by the Grade 11 class and their families. The Grad Banquet starts at 6pm on Friday June 3rd at Silverton Memorial Hall followed by the dance at 8pm. Both of these two events are invitation only. The Grads will also be doing a walk through at 1.30pm with their dates on Friday so that the whole school can see how fine they look dressed in their best.

‘Hamburger Lunch for Volunteers’

 Without volunteers activities like Into Learning do not happen. To say thank you to everyone has volunteered their time this year to help our school and students we hope that you can join us for lunch on Thursday, June 9th anytime between 12 noon and 2pm. We should be out in the garden if the weather is good.

  Elementary School Field Trip

 The elementary school will be heading to Edgewood Elementary School on Monday June 27th to take part in a fun day of friendship, walking, sport and a picnic. A consent form will follow.

 Hidden Gallery Art Exhibition

 Don’t miss the one day show of Children’s Art at the Hidden Garden Gallery on Friday, June 10th from 10 – 3.  This is a special showing of art that the children in the New Denver Preschool and Lucerne’s Kindergarten, Grade One, and Grade Two students have done this year.  Their work will delight and inspire viewers of all ages.  Diverse mediums have been used to create these pieces.  There is string art done with paints, lovely paper collages depicting spring flowers, and an array of impressions of our golden sun.  The Children’s Art show will feature an installation of felt work that will dazzle.  The Children’s Art Show at the Hidden Garden Gallery was a hit last year, the children were proud of their work and excited to host, as one child said, “my first show!”  This year’s show won’t disappoint, and everyone is cordially invited. 

Grade 7 Secondary School Transition Day 

Grade 7 will spend a day with secondary school teachers getting to meet them and getting the experience of a secondary school timetable on Tuesday, June 21st.

September 6th  2011– schools open

December 16th 2011 – schools close for winter vacation

January 2nd 2012 – schools reopen

March 19-30th 2012  – Spring Break

 Life is a journey for us all and sadly for us, some students will be leaving Lucerne at the end of the year to explore new places. If you know for sure that your child or children will not be at Lucerne in September please will you let the office know as soon as possible as it is vital to know numbers of students so that we can configure classes using accurate numbers.
