Coffee order forms went home last week. Orders are due Monday, June 7th.
Falkland School staff and students are encouraged to wear ORANGE on Monday, May 31st and/or Tuesday June 1st as a symbol of support and reconciliation following the discovery of the remains of 215 children at the Kamloops Residential School. Our flag, along with all schools in SD83 will be at half-mast tomorrow.
Typically this time of year our community is buzzing with Falkland Stampede festivities. Our students and staff have fond memories of visiting the rodeo grounds as they get set up, dressing up as cowfolk and hosting a full pancake breakfast for our community with special appearances from Dennis Halstead, the Rodeo Clown. All these events in place to kick off the Falkland Stampede weekend festivities.
This year, our staff and students continued with tradition as best we could given the current Provincial Health Restrictions. Many cowfolk attended school this past Thursday, May 21st and staff provided a pancake breakfast for our students. Here is a little glimpse into the day. We all look forward to the day when the 102nd Falkland Stampede will be able to take place.
