“Striving together to achieve our potential for a better tomorrow.”

Spirit Assembly was so much fun and we learned about our new team animals! It is report card week, hope you have time to discuss your child’s progress with their teacher and see the wonderful work they have done.

 If you want to help with the “Extra Eyes” program at recess or lunch please stop by the office.

 Thanks to all the parents who have looked in the Lost of Found and have provided mitts and hats for the colder days.

Write up for the Grade 12 service project

Mrs. Tacey’s class paid it forward! Click on the link below to view the picture.

We have a student in our class named Keelan.  Keelan’s mom told us that she drives the Handidart and that gave us an idea!  We asked if we could make cards for the passengers on the Handidart.  Keelan’s mom thought that was a good idea and she gave us the first names of some of the passengers.  Here’s a picture of a few of the Hallowe’en cards the class made.  We hope to continue this project by making Christmas cards in December, Valentine’s cards in February, and “Welcome Spring” cards near the end of the year!
