Last week we enjoyed several assemblies in the Elementary School. Thank you to parents, teachers and especially students for a successful launch of our “Spotlight On!” assemblies this year. All classes- Kindergarten to Grade 5- were in the Spotlight twice. As a bonus, we had Pre-Kindergarten join in on Friday. I am amazed at the growth we’ve seen this year! Well done, all.
Please note this busy week ends with our Elementary Field Day on Friday. Students need to come to school in clothes they run and play in! Of course our plan is for this good weather to continue… fingers crossed!
As some families plan to leave early for the summer break, please remember that report cards are distributed on the last day of school. If you are leaving ASW, and leave school before the final day (June 21) we will send you a PDF of the final report card. If you are choosing to leave early and will return next year, you can pick up the report card from the ES Office in August.
Finally, ASW is piloting a new ENotes format with all ENotes- from every division- sent out on Wednesdays. Please be on the lookout for this new communication this week. As I send out my info on Mondays, it will be duplicate for the next few weeks, with a fresh start and a consistent emailing of ENotes on Wednesdays only for the 2017-18 school year.
Have a wonderful week!

We will focus on Google Docs and how you can create and share a document for collaboration. We will also show you a great tool for making lists and organizing yourself called Google Keep.
