Dear Grade 7 Parents/Guardians:
We are excited to share an opportunity that has been offered to Brigden Public School for all current grade 7 students. In partnership with LCCVI, we have been invited to take part in the Muskoka Woods experience as our grade 8 graduation trip next year.
The trip will either take place in Fall 2019 or Spring 2020 and will include a charter coach bus to/from Muskoka Woods and a 2-night/3-day experience. The trip will focus on team building, leadership opportunities and building relationships to support the transition to secondary school. Along with our own staff, LCCVI student and staff partners will be at the camp to provide guidance and support in camp activities and mentoring roles.
Many activities are offered at Muskoka Woods, appealing to all interests and abilities. Many schools from LKDSB have participated previously, with many students recalling it as the best school experience they have ever participated in.
Other local elementary schools are currently investigating the Muskoka Woods experience for next year as well. It is exciting that our children from Brigden have been offered this opportunity. To provide additional information and provide you with a chance to ask questions, a Grade 7 Parent Information Meeting has been scheduled for Thursday, February 28th, starting at 5:30. This meeting will be held in a classroom at Brigden Public School. I encourage at least 1 parent/guardian to attend this very important meeting. I am expecting that shortly after Thursday's meeting, we will be setting our plan moving forward with this trip.
For additional information prior to the meeting, Brigden students and staff will be meeting with our System Coordinator on Monday, February 25th at 10:00 am, in class. In addition, I encourage you to discuss with your children and visit https://muskokawoods.com/.
