A reminder to the families of our grade 6 students that the Leaving Ceremony is taking place on Wednesday, June 25 at 11:15 am.
Today is our school-wide playday! Our students today are engaging in a variety of individual and team-based activities – cooperative and competitive! All of these games are in support of the Longest Day of Play, a district fundraiser in support of the Education Foundation.
For 24 consecutive days beginning on May 28, and ending on the “Longest Day of Play”, June 20, FMPS students walked, ran, jumped, and moved for 60 minutes each day. At the end of the 24 days, the students completed a cumulative 24 hours of exercise. This achievement will be celebrated across the District with a symbolic “Longest Day of Play”.
Today is our annual Vernissage Art Display. Between 4 and 6 pm you and your child are welcome to wander the halls of Farley Mowat and gaze upon the many masterpieces created by our classes of talented artists! We hope you can join us!

This morning’s very special Volunteer Appreciation Wolf Pack was a terrific success! We want all our Wolf Pack volunteers to hear from our staff and students how important YOU are to us! Thank you for finding time in your very busy schedules to support your child’s learning.
We couldn’t do it without you and so we give to you a great, big wolf HOWL!
Mrs. Garvie, Monsieur Thorp & all of the Wolf Pack Staff and Students
On Monday our Grade 3 to 6 Track & Field Team participated in their Regional Meet at South Carleton High School. They competed in a number of events including the 1600m long distance run, ball throw, 200m sprint, and 4 x 100m relay. The weather was sunny, the competition was spirited, and all the competitors represented Farley Mowat in the best possible fashion!
Special thank-yous go out to Mrs. Scott and Monsieur Thorp for organizing and supervising the team as well as all the parent volunteers for coming. We could not do it without you!
Tomorrow, the gym will be closed all day so we can host a Voting Location for the Provincial Election. You can find more information on this election at wemakevotingeasy.ca.
Finally, Friday morning we will be hosting a very special Wolf Pack assembly in honour of our volunteers. We hope you can join us at 9 am in the gym as we celebrate the wonderful adults who help make Farley Mowat such a special place to learn and to teach.
Please remember that tomorrow, Friday June 6 is a Professional Activity Day and students do not attend school.
