Happy June! Already students can feel the break coming, like a rising tide or a coming storm. The air changes, there’s a scent on the breeze… SOMETHING is coming over yonder! Teachers often call June the busiest month of the year. Too true. There are PATs to write, curriculum to finish, fun days CONSTANTLY, grad trips, grad ceremonies, track and field days, more track and field days and dances to squeeze in all while attempting to keep the hysteria of the coming break down to a mild roar. Yes, it is true! June is the busiest month of the year, and arguably the most fun! 😀
Track and Field
Our Seba Beach crew was out in full force at this years track and field events. With several students going on to find success in Zones and even Cities! Levi Goerz even set a new 100m record! 11.55 seconds!
Seba Beach, as tradition, hosted the year end WEST Dance with the novel theme of #beachlife2k18! Awesome fun for all and a great turn out! Beach balls, pool inflatables, water wings and a sea of balloons were just part of what made this dance so memorable!
This years grade 9 crew chose a trip to West Edmonton Mall to experience first hand the excitement of shopping at one of the largest malls in the world! After venturing around and seeing all the sights, we made our way to Galaxy Land for hours of fun, screams, tears, a little fear and a lot of laughs. Once we had all had our fair share of rides, we walked into The Old Spaghetti Factory, hoping to get a table for 19. Just kidding! That would be ludicrous! We had a reservation and a prepared 3 course meal, with a lot of table antics that you just had to be there for.
After our meal we traveled in style to our campsite at River Valley. We quickly set up camp and began playing a game of catch, Frisbee, playing on the playground and Kolby worked on his long jump 😛
A quick campfire and off to bed we went! This was the part I was least looking forward to… sleeping in the back of a vehicle that doesn’t fully recline, in a space you don’t fully fit in. But alas! the things we do to be ‘fun’ 😛
In the morning Vanessa and Autumn made bacon and eggs while the rest of us lazily woke up and set about morning routines.
Once we were all fed and chipper we walked over to the River Valley Aerial Park, which was hands down my favorite part! I was initially dreading it as I have a healthy fear of heights (anything over 3 feet), and the thought of an obstacle course suspended 50m in the air sounded like my personal nightmare. However! Once we got up there it was so much fun! Mrs. Tremblay and I were the ‘old crew’ taking our time with the obstacles while the younger crew ran laps around us. So much fun!
