Hello Proud 2021 Grad Parents!
Despite the deep freeze we currently find ourselves in, it will be summer before we know it and graduation festivities will be upon us. It looks like we will, again, be limited in the types of ceremonies and celebrations we can host this year. We will also have to be very flexible in order to meet any last minute provincial requirements in our planning. But, we might as well begin planning.
Please join us via Zoom on Wednesday, February 17th at 7PM to discuss the current school plans for the May 28th graduation ceremony, and begin to discuss plans that the parents would like to make for graduation celebrations.
Join the Zoom Meeting by clicking on this link below at 7PM on February 17th.
Please remember a re-usable mask!
We need your help!
Please remind your child to bring a clean re-usable mask to school every day. We have plenty of extra packages of cloths masks to hand out if any student would like some. Just stop by the main office and pick one up. It saves the environment, keeps our school grounds cleaner, and saves a lot of money for the school.
Thanking you in advance!
Pick up your art projects from last semester
Drinking water is a great habit! Just bring a reusable water bottle to support the habit!
If any families are able to purchase a few new water bottles we would really appreciate it! Just drop them off at the main office and we will look after getting them out to students who cannot bring their own.
Starting next week, disposable paper cups will no longer be available at the main office!
