The first mountain bike race of the year was held last night at Croft. A total of seven schools participated with almost fifty mountain bikers competing. Croft students had a very strong showing winning four of the nine medals up for grabs. Pictured here are the top three finishers in the Gr. 4 boys category. Landon Skidmore took home first place honors and Grayden Mutch second in a very exciting race. In the grade five boys category Jacob Tenass of Croft took home first place and Alex Henderson captured third. Way to go boys!
Alex H. was the lucky ticket holder for our Bass Fishing Derby Grand Prize Draw. Pictured here is Alex receiving his new rod, reel, tackle box and tackle from our principal Mr. D. During our two week long fishing derby Alex hooked and landed 122 bass! Wowsers! Special mention also going out to Maverick P. in Kindergarten who hooked and landed 66 bass during this event. Awesome job boys.

How do I get enough
energy to be physically active?
Many factors influence our energy level during the day: what we eat, how
well and how long we sleep, our stress level, etc. It is important to assess
our lifestyle to identify if there is anything that can be changed. If you feel
too tired to exercise, reassess you sleeping habits. If you feel you do not
have enough time in a day, reassess where you spend your time and evaluate if
there is a way to be more efficient. If you feel you have no energy,
re-evaluate you eating habits.
Notice to all Grade 5 parents: If you have signed up to be a part of the FOOD
COMMITTEE for Mt. Carleton (or would like to join), please be advised that we
will be meeting at Croft on Thursday May 8 at 6:30pm to finalize our menu and to
take inventory of the supplies that we have already on hand. It is imperative
that this work gets done. For further info, you can call Jennifer at 624-7711
