Student Drop-Off and Pick-up

A friendly reminder to parents when dropping off or picking up students, please ensure to use the designated zones which is the NW corner of the parking lot marked with signs or the back of the school.

National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month in Canada where we celebrate the great achievements of Canadian and international poets, the poetic community and freedom of expression. The League of Canadian Poets invites you to celebrate this year’s theme, resilience. Visit the library on April 29th for Poem in Your Pocket Day! Grab a free treat, select a poem, carry it with you and share it with others!
