You are invited to our Holiday Concert on Wednesday, December 18th at 6:30 pm. Classes have been busy preparing holiday themed performances! Doors open at 6:00 pm. Students should arrive and meet in their classes at 6:15 pm. If you are not able to make it to the evening performance, you are welcome to attend the dress rehearsal at 12:00 pm on Dec. 18th.

Entrance will be by donation of a non-perishable food item for a local food bank OR child sized hats, mittens or gloves for our mitten tree. Half of the winter wear collected will be kept at our school for students in need and the other half will be donted to a local charity. We will continue to collect items for the mitten tree and food bank until December 20th.

Once again, Parent Council will organize a raffle with the winner getting to sit on a comfy couch with snacks! Raffle tickets will be available at the door on the evening of the concert. (1 ticket for $2, 3 tickets for $5, an arms length for $10).

The Grade 8s will be hosting a bake sale before and after the show to raise money for graduation.
