Wrapping up Grade 4 with Ms. Darlington at SGA!
As we wrap up our final month together, I celebrate the many gifts that each and every student has brought to our Grade 4 classroom. Let's keep shining and enjoy our final journey together!

With sadness, I say farewell this month to our SGA community (I am returning to another school for next year). I will miss our students, athletes, staff and school community. My hope for our beautiful Grade 4 students is that they will remember to 'wear their hearts on their sleeves', they will grow with the light of Jesus at the forefront of their learning and they will strive for their personal best! Take these 3 things with you to Grade 5, and you will keep sailing! 

Note: This page will be updated weekly (generally Sunday), and as needed throughout the week. In aligning with an ECO school, our monthly calendar can be found on the left column.  Our last week is here!
