Born in China
Born in China is a movie that the whole junior division (grades 4 to 6) went to see in theatres on the April 25. The film was about 3 animals. The animals were pandas, golden monkeys, and snow leopards. When I watched it I felt happy because the animals were fantastic and cool to watch. It was a documentary based on animals. The narrator was the voice for the animals and he tried to give each animal a voice. For an example the narrator spoke for the golden monkey when he was cold and his family was not letting the monkey cuddle with the parents and the monkey’s baby sister in the winter. “My parents were giving all the attention to the baby sister,” said the narrator as he spoke for Tata the monkey. I hope you have the experience of feeling happy while watching this movie.

Hello community! Today I would like to talk about our Grade 3 and 4 classes at Millbrook South Cavan School. We all went to Camp Kawartha. It was the most wonderful 5 hours of school experience of most of our lives. We did a First Nations’ scavengers hunt, we learned about bees and pollination and we saw a presentation on water pollution. We also learned to help and grow our community more every day. I have never been to Camp Kawartha before so it was very interesting and fun first experience. I also want to thank Camp Kawartha for letting our Millbrook South Cavan to come and have a great time.

Grade Eight Grad Trip Preparations
As June nears, the grade eight students are getting more and more restless. Thinking about their trip to Niagara Falls makes them feel so excited. They are raising money through popcorn sales at school as well as pizza and popcorn orders for each person in grade eight, to hand out to family and friends. The grade eight students and their parents have already had an information night, permission forms sent home, and have paid the $75 deposit to secure a hotel and transportation for the two days. Now they are just waiting for the exciting day, and some more payments to come.

Junior Boys Floor Hockey Tournament
Let’s go Millbrook, let’s go!
The Junior Boy’s floor hockey tournament was good for Millbrook and bad at times. Millbrook went 1-3-1 meaning they won 1 they lost 3 and they tied 1.
Mr. Conlin liked the boys’ effort and the team had a lot of fun during the games and when they were not playing.
There were two highlights of the Junior Boy’s floor hockey tournament. The first occurred when Riley Buck scored 2 goals in the last 2 minutes of play. The second happened when Ryan Pillman got 2 goals in 1 game but 1 of his goals was a tip in from a shot from centre floor and landed in the net.
Nice job boys, you did a great job!!!

MSC Popcorn Day
Pop, pop, pop, do you hear that, Millbrook? That’s the sound of Millbrook South Cavan Public School’s very own popcorn day! Popcorn day took place March and April and raised a lot of money for the Grade 8 graduation trip! At popcorn day there was many different flavours to choose from and each bag only cost 2 dollars, and what a great cause! The available flavours were: butter salt, dill pickle, kettle corn and white cheddar. Thanks for participating Millbrook!
