Thank you!

Thanks to your generous donations from our production "Snow Biz", we are able to donate $587.72 to the Ronald MacDonald House in Ottawa. An equal amount will go directly into our school to help pay for some of the show costs, supplement our tech (woodworking) program with Mr. Guild and supplement our arts program (e.g. instrument repair and upkeep).

It is always such a pleasure to work with these kids. They take direction extremely well on the stage and always come through with their best performance. I'm so proud of each and every one.

I think we were the only school in the world that had snow INSIDE!!!

A Few Reminders...

  • please ensure our bus drop off lane stays clear in the mornings and at the end of the school day - parents/guardians can park in the lot or on the road
  • please make sure end-of-day arrangements are made with your child's teacher (via a note or the agenda) and that your child knows how he/she is going home. We are finding that we are losing instructional time the last half hour of the day with having to disrupt classes to pull students out or call in with pick up information. Students are learning right up to 3:35 and if parents/guardians can wait to pick up until then, we'd appreciate it.
  • if you are picking up your child(ren) at the end of the day, please ensure that they are picked up at 3:35. We don't have supervision after school.
