The unofficial anthem of back to school - at least for parents!
I know it plays in my head just before school starts. But the gratitude I feel as structure returns and our kids go back to see friends as they enter a new grade, also brings a tear to my eye as I reflect on how big my kids are getting. I often find myself repeating my grandma's response as I updated her with grades and ages "How can that be?!" she would exclaim. How can it be that we are starting another school year, with summer in the review mirror and all the opportunity and energy that fall brings? While we are closing in on the end of a year, I often feel a renewed energy to set a few new goals (or reinstate those set in January)! Looking forward to this school year, I am excited for all there is to come!

OUTDOOR CLASSROOM COMPLETION
Our major project from last year is about 1/2 done. We are on a slight pause as we evaluate the costs incurred to date. At this point in the project, we have a safe and usable structure for teachers and students. Don't worry - we plan on completing the project by the end of October.
Huge thanks to Dunbow Recreation Board for providing a $20,000 grant towards project funding! And to all of you! Your support of our Hot Lunch Program and various fundraisers have allowed the Parent Association to fund the rest.
I can't even wait for this to start again! Watch for ordering information to come mid-month with delivery beginning in October.
