This year's graduates will all be beginning grade one in September after having spent anywhere from one to four years at our little yellow school. They will be attending French Immersion schools, Private Schools and Public and Catholic Schools. They have grown and matured during their time at school and we will remember them for their love for learning, their compassion and helpfulness, and the wonderful examples they set for their fellow classmates. Thank you.
These graduates are starting off on a new journey, a new part of their lives. Dr. Seuss wrote a wonderful book, Oh, the Places You'll Go! to describe the ups and downs that life presents while encouraging each one of us to find the success that lies within. Excerpts from this book follow.
