“Beach Day” for Grade 12’s

Grad Week started today and the seniors called it the “Beach Day”. Grade 12’s got wet, enjoyed the sun and enjoyed splashing water to each other. It was a really good lunch time although not everyone had the opportunity to throw a water balloon to someone.

Thank you so much for all the Grade 12’s who participated in this Grad event. Please continue to participate in other Grad week activities.

Check out some cool photos below.

So they go on TV and say they will find them and when they do, it will help get the area declared a preserve. But a logger not wanting that to happen tries to stop them. When Jewel learns of this she wants to go there and see if there are any other birds like them. But Blu who is a city bird doesn’t want to but he decides to go to make Jewel happy.
