John Muir says goodbye

Elementary school students write a end of year story on their school

Dear People of Sooke,

It is now time to leave this year of fun and learning. It is time for summer.

We are sad to leave. We have had lots of fun times including swimming, beach days, trips to the museum, dress up days, sock hops, discovery afternoons, and our overnight trip to Camp Thunderbird.

We learned many neat things and practiced writing, reading, and math.

We had special trips to Ella Park and Ella Beach.

We learned more about friendships and problem solving. Our Grade 5s are heading to Journey middle school and we know they are going to do well there.

Wishing a happy summer to everyone from all of the Jaguars at John Muir.

Written by Holly, Ali, and Nadia
