I hope everyone had a restful and relaxing Spring Break. Thank you to all parents and caregivers who took time out OF your busy schedules to attend Parent Teacher Conferences prior to Spring Break. We appreciate the opportunity to discuss your child’s/children’s education with you. Congratulations and thank you to Mrs. Delaurier, Mrs. Denbow, Mr. Young and the amazing group of volunteers who organized and facilitated the Career Day at Souris School yesterday. This year we had over 110 exhibitors attend with both the business community and post-secondary educational institutions being well represented. A major change this year was that the event was held during the school day and included students from the entire school division. Once again, the students and staff at Souris School were extremely gracious hosts. The annual spring musical is coming up next month – Thursday to Saturday, May 2nd, 3rd, 4th at 7:30 PM. This year’s show is a Kidsummer Night’s Dream. The cast has been selected and rehearsals have begun.

Please send containers to the Kindergarten room if you can help out! Thank you. •Mrs. Puhach & Mrs. Farmer SOURIS SCHOOL DRAMA “A Kidsummer Night’s Dream” One of Shakespeare’s greatest comedies will soon hit the local stage, but with a twist! Souris School Drama will present “A Kidsummer Night’s Dream” in May. A Children’s musical adaptation that celebrates the classic comedy “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. The story begins in the woods outside Athens. The fairy king and queen are squabbling over a changeling—enter a pair of runaway lovers intent on eloping, a suitor in pursuit and a group of workers rehearsing a humble play as a gift for the duke’s wedding. See the realms of humans and fairies collide as the mischief-making sprite, Puck, works her magic! It’s full of mischief and mayhem, misunderstandings, magic potions and mix-ups as kings and queens, humble workers, fairies, parents and kids all chase their dreams. It is a magical show to be enjoyed by all ages! This year the cast is made up of Souris School students from grades 8 to 12. We are also very happy to welcome Mark Philips from Hartney School. Mark will be playing the part of Bottom, a worker who is stupid, boastful and stubborn. Simon Jose Sterling is an exchange student from Bogota,

Columbia. Simon is playing Snout another of the workers. Nicole Mason is playing Oberon, the jealous, blustering Fairy King. Nicole will be graduating this year and we are really going to miss her. You may remember her amazing performances as Mrs. Drysdale in the Beverly Hillbillies, or in last years’ Snow White as the Queen! Another graduating cast member is April Davis. April has been instrumental in the past behind the scenes. Last year she played Woeful, one of the seven dwarfs. She is Hermia this year, the rebellious daughter of Egeus. We have seven grade 11 students. They have been a great bunch for our drama program. In the Beverly Hillbillies, Cassie Rekken played Groovy Monahan. Last year she was Lady Matilda in Snow White, and this year, she is Hyppolyta, Queen of the Amazons. Blaine Driedger came on board last year as Sir Clumsy in Snow White. He was such a natural and made every practice fun! We are happy to have him back this year as Peter Quince the leader of the workers. Sarah Palson played a neighbor of Mrs. Drysdale in Beverly Hillbillies and was Packer one of the dwarfs last year. Sarah will be Starveling one of the workers. Maria Jose Nunez was another of our dwarfs last year. She played Grinder. This year she is Snug, the worker who plays a lion in their play. Two years ago Bailey Radcliffe was our wonderful Granny in The Beverly Hillbillies. In Snow White, Bailey was Witch Wicked. This year she will transform into Titania the Fairy Queen. Our final grade 11 cast members are new to our group. However, they seem like veterans to us! Michael Gohl will play the role of Demetrius, who is the captain of the football team and a scoundrel. Curtis Cripps is our Theseus, Duke of Athens. We have three grade 10 students in our mix. Krystal Adams was our beautiful Snow White last year. She has returned to be Helena, the wimpy complainer with low self-image. Breanne Driedger was Gloria Mundy in Beverly Hillbillies. She took a year off, but we are happy to have her back as the worker named Flute. Charmaine Joy Perez is new to us this year. She is one of the fairies. That brings us to the three grade 9 cast members. Jessi Swaenepoel began her drama career behind the scenes in Beverly Hillbillies. Last year she came out in front of the curtain to play Picker the dwarf. This time around she will be the Philostrate who looks after Theseus and will also be a fairy. Eric McRae played the police detective Frank Richards in the Beverly Hillbillies, and Keeper the dwarf last year. This year he is all about love as Lysander. Izzy West was our mute dwarf named Mouse last year in Snow White. Look for her this time as Mustardseed, one of the Fairy Queen’s servants.

Usually, cast members are no younger than grade 8, however when Andy Lovatt played the fireman in Beverly Hillbillies, he was in grade 6. This year he is Egeus, a crotchety old dad who doesn’t understand the younger generation. We are also pleased to welcome our newest cast members from grade 8. Jenna Farmer (as Peaseblossom), Camille Punay (as Cobweb) and Jessica Adams (as Moth) the Queen’s attendants. And last, but definitely not least…. Rochelle Tetrault as Puck, Oberon’s main sprite who thinks humans are all fools! Lara Mason returns as our wonderfully dedicated pianist with band members Tara Farmer and Ben Mason. A Kidsummer Night’s Dream promises to be a memorable production not only for those involved but for theatre-goers who will get to see a different rendition of Shakespeare’s story of love and enchantment! We look forward to entertaining you!! Performance dates are May 2, 3, and 4 at 7:30 pm (doors open at 6:45) Tickets are available in advance or at the door! For more information contact Brenda at DIVISION NEWS The Trustees of Southwest Horizon School Division invite you to participate in a public meeting to discuss the location and construction of a new administration office in Souris. Meeting Location: Hartney School Band Room, Time: 6:00 p.m. Date: Monday, April 8, 2013 Background: The current administration office in Souris is on a short-term lease. The office is capable of providing a comfortable work space for 6 people and there are at present 9 members of staff working out of this building – Superintendent of Schools, Executive Secretary, Operations Supervisor, Operations Coordinator, Student Services/Curriculum Coordinator, CTS/Apprenticeship Coordinator, Occupational Therapist and Study Manitoba International Student Program Coordinator. Some equipment and supplies are stored off site as we do not have enough storage space. We have already reviewed the possibility of an RFP (request for proposal) but have determined that due to annual costs, owning our own building seems to be more advantageous over the long run.

Proposal: We would propose to build an administrative office on Souris School property and look at amortization over a 20 year period. Budget considerations have been included in the 2013/14 budget deliberations. We would also like to provide an office for our School Psychologist and our Technology Coordinator within this building. Rationale: Our office space, which is currently leased, is insufficient for our needs. It is very important to have a facility that all necessary personnel can be housed in. If amalgamation of school divisions were to happen in the future, then having space on school grounds would be advantageous for future administration or educational purposes. KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION The school is now accepting registration for Kindergarten students for the 2013-2014 school year. Parents who have children of Kindergarten age are asked to register these children with the school secretary between 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday at the school office. Parents are asked to bring their child’s birth certificate when they come to register, so we can make a copy for our files. Children must be five years of age on or before December 31st, 2013. Anyone who is aware of neighbors and friends who may have children ready to begin Kindergarten in the fall are asked to pass the message on to them to assist with our school planning. CAREER EXPLORATION NEWS A huge thank you goes to all the presenters and exhibitors who took the time out of their busy schedules to take part in the Career Day held on Thursday, April 4. Your support and attendance is appreciated. Students had great opportunities to visit post secondary institutions/ career exhibits and learn about the many careers available to them.

Senior Pic: Mackenzie Rowat, Chanel Becker, Amy Tuttosi, Amber Doyle, Sarah McKenna, Emily Tuttosi The Varsity Girls basketball team traveled to The Pas for the AA Provincial Basketball Championships last week. After the long 7.5 hour bus ride the

ladies participated in opening ceremonies on Thursday and hit the court in their quarterfinal game versus Steinbach Christian. Unfortunately, things did not go the Sabres way as the ladies struggled to find a rhythm at both ends of the court. The team battled right to the final whistle but was upset by the Flames 54-43. Sarah Palson scored 12 points and hauled in 16 rebounds in the loss, while Sarah McKenna added 9 points. This moved the team to a spot they did not want to be, the consolation side of the Championship. After a long, emotional night of soul searching the ladies showed some tremendous character and heart as they rebounded to defeat Major Pratt (Russell) in the consolation semifinal on Friday 56-24. Emily Tuttosi led the way with 11 points and Jessie Robbins added 8 in a true team effort as the ladies did not allow a single point in the third quarter. The ladies needed little motivation in preparing for the consolation final as they played a familiar rival, Elton in the game. The team played fantastic for the first 8 minutes of the game, but then fell into a bit of a lull and found themselves down 8 points at the half. The team responded with a spirited second half at both ends of the floor leading by as much as 10 points. However, with four minutes to go Elton closed the gap to three points. It was here that team captain Emily Tuttosi did what leaders do! Emily went on a personal 10-0 scoring run (including two key three pointers) as the ladies finished their season on a high note with a 50-37 victory. Emily was awesome scoring a game high 22 points, 10 rebounds and 6 steals. Sarah M added 8 points and 10 rebounds to finish her stellar career in style. The girls showed some true guts and character over the weekend as although things did not go as hoped, they never quit battling, working together, and most importantly believing in themselves. They made their coach extremely proud. The last game brought about the end of six basketball careers on Saturday. Amber Doyle, Chanel Becker, Mackenzie Rowat, Sarah McKenna, Amy Tuttosi, and Emily Tuttosi will be missed tremendously. Thank you to all for your commitment and dedication to our program. Lastly, thanks to all staff, students, and friends for your support this season. Most especially a sincere thank you to our parents. Without your support the long grind that is a basketball season would be so difficult. Thank you all so much for your support throughout the season. Basketball is over, the snow and the storms should be finished with now! •Coach Penner

Every spring a donation campaign is conducted on behalf of 25 registered charitable organizations. You will receive a form in your mailbox listing all the charities who participate. You can designate an amount to any/all of the charities you are interested in supporting. Once you have completed your form and attached payment you can drop the form off at the designated location or give it to a Donor’s Choice representative who comes to your home during the town-wide canvass which is taking place from April 15 - 19. Using Donor’s Choice eliminates having 25 separate charities coming to your door to solicit donations. It is easy to complete the form and you write a single cheque to support multiple charities. It benefits the charities in that they do not require as many volunteers to conduct door-to-door campaigns.

CAMPBELL’S SOUP “LABELS FOR EDUCATION” THANK YOU to everyone who clips and saves those labels and UPC codes. If you use these products then save those labels – Campbell’s Condensed soup, Chunky soup, Broth, Ramen Hearty Noodles, Ramen Hearty Noodles, Ready to serve soup, Habitant, Gardennay, Soup at Hand, V8Soups, Easy cooking sauces along with Prego sauce, V8 Splash/Fusion, Pace Salsa, Goldfish crackers. Collection bins are at the school, Big Way and Robbins Fine Foods. It seems like a lot of work but the labels would be just heading to the garbage anyways. The school appreciates everyone that has supported this program, so keep on saving those labels. Remember, both the label and UPC are needed. •Glenda McConnell
