Dear parents,

Also, get your bikes tuned up and out for summer! Ross Road’s Bike to School Week is the first week of June this year, June 1st – 5th. Consider biking to school with your kids or part way. Teachers will be tallying up the number of students who bike to school each day and the class (one intermediate & one primary) with the most participation will win a pizza party! Also, on Friday June 5th, Escape Adventures will be setting up bike stations on the field to teach safety & skills. All classes will participate – students without bikes can participate by running/walking through the activities. A waiver needs to be signed for this activity so look out for it from your child’s teacher.

Finally, thanks to those who came out a few Saturdays ago for the parents social evening at the Black Bear Pub. They were extremely supportive and cooperative and everyone had a great time. We will definitely hold a parent social there again!

See you on Wednesday! Don’t forget to bring your Justin Bieber memorabilia to get it signed!**
