May - June News
Students thoroughly enjoyed Music Monday and the Talent Show that took place during Education Week at the beginning of May.
Other fun-filled activities this month included: Swim to Survive for Grade 3 students; Luv2Groove for the Primary students; Scientists in the School for Grade 4 MFI students; a trip to the Bill Mason Centre for Grade 4 students; Odyssey Showcase for all junior students at Centrepointe Theatre; a visit to the Billings Estate for Grade 3 students; and WEJ’s junior Track and Field day.
Thank you to the CHEO committee for organizing a very successful and fun Walkathon for CHEO. The weather was perfect and students, staff and parents enthusiastically walked through the Beaverbrook community to raise money for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. The CHEO Book Fair was held last Friday. So many books were donated. Thank you. We are very proud to announce that WEJ’s Walkathon for CHEO raised over $7,000.00 Woohoo! Thank you WEJ community for being “superheroes for CHEO” and helping to make a difference in the life of a child. WEJ’s cheque presentation will take place during the CHEO Telethon, this weekend, Sunday afternoon at approximately 5:10pm. Hope you can watch.
