Hello everyone:

The final week’s update is coming out on Friday this week due to a few major events you should know about in advance.

Key information you can’t miss:

Tuesday, all girls will be at Lakeview for Spirit Day and Rhythmic Wishes. Bel Aire girls will be here so will need to be picked up from Lakeview rather than Bel Aire if you normally pick up your daughter. Buses will take her home if she normally rides the bus. More info below.

Wednesday is a half day for both schools with buses leaving for home at noon. More info below.

This event will take place Monday, June 25th in the Learning Commons at the Lakeview Campus. Please feel free to stop in any time between 3:00-4:30pm for light snacks and to connect and share memories with Ms. Harris.

Absences

If your daughter will be away please either call the office or email office@calgarygirlsschool.com to notify us.

School Council

Grade 9 parents! Considering donating your uniform pieces after graduation? School Council will have a donation bin set up after the ceremony to collect any unwanted pieces.

As a public service announcement, please keep an eye out for bicyclists and motorcyclists while driving. It’s that time of year again when we all share the roads.

Thank you all for a wonderful year.

Congratulations to all our graduates. We wish you the very best for the next stage of your education.

Have a great final week and a most excellent summer!
