DIAMOND JUBILEE NEWS
After 31 years at Immaculata, Mr. Brian Drosdovech aka “Mr. D” is retiring this year. It is only fitting that our last “Blast from the Past” tribute, of our 60th anniversary year, is to Mr. D. Thank you for the many years of teaching, coaching and counselling. You have inspired so many students to work hard and play hard. Immaculata is a better place because of you! 
ANNOUNCEMENTS
We actually just recently received two more donations (THANK YOU!!!) which brings our current total to just under $25,000!
We are working hard in securing the best costs for the many updates we want to make to the Learning Commons, including the floor. Purchasing materials is one thing…but if we could find a family member out there who could help us out with installing the vinyl plank…that’d be great!
Also, we are looking for a few volunteers to help move books and shelves (yes all of them!) from the library office in mid-June (after exams). If you need some parent participation hours and would like to help, please contact Mrs. Uhrich.
EXAMS ARE COMING
Exam week starts next Thursday. Don't be caught off guard. Check the schedule in the link below, as well as a handy guide on study tips and strategies.
Good luck to all students! We are almost there...


REPORT CARDS PICK UP AND TEXTBOOKS DROP OFF
With yet another year that we are not able to host an undergrad ceremony, we will be distributing report cards and collecting last-minute textbooks at staggered times on June 23. Please see the schedule as follows:

Grade 8 - 8:00-9:00 AM
Grades 9 & 10 - 9:00-10:00 AM
Grades 11 & 12* - 10:00-11:00 AM
*grade 12s will receive their report cards during their Grad Ceremony later that day.

If you are unable to come at the scheduled times, you are welcomed to come by from 1:00-3:30 PM.

Please note that the textbooks are due as of the first day of exams, and June 23rd is the last day we will receive them before processing charges for missing books.
Keep an eye out for notices coming out next week.
DESPERATELY SEEKING... HOMESTAY FAMILIES
We are such a great school and so welcoming that we have lots of students coming next year.

 This is a great problem to have!
It means our international program is alive and well. We are looking for a few more families who can offer a private furnished bedroom with a window and a welcoming environment. We pay $925 per month per student. If you’d like to learn more, please contact Shelley Brodeur at irhs.ahc@cisnd.ca
We are still offering $100 VISA cards for all referrals that we place students with.
As staff, moms and dads, uncles and aunts, brothers and sisters, daughters and sons, we were devastated and shocked by the news of the 215 children's remains found in the Kamloops Residential School. We have been and continue to pray for them, their families, and community.
ACHIEVEMENTS
SCHOOL HIGHLIGHTS
GRAD RETREAT
Our grade 12 grads were able to partake in a modified version of their usual grad retreat at Green Bay on Monday. They enjoyed a variety of fun activities in the sun, as well as some reflection and bonding activities. The next day they hiked Mr. Boucherie on what is so far the hottest day of the year! Way to go Mustang grads...prove to the world that you are unstoppable!
MORE PE CAPERS
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no it’s the PE 11/12 class!

This week the PE 11/12 class took to the skies above Myra Canyon as they took on the ropes course and the ziplines. Fun was had by all as the students navigated the courses and took in the beautiful sights of the Okanagan Valley. Thank you to the staff at the Myra Canyon Adventure Park for making our experience so wonderful!
