I - Integrity Be Honest, have strong morals, and tell the truth.

Rachel's Challenge

Rachel’s Challenge is an organization in the United States that works to

reduce violence. It is a non-religious, non-profit, non-political organization, led by Darrell Scott and his wife Sandy. Rachel Scott was the first student killed in the Columbine High School shooting in 1999. Rachel’s Challenge exists to make schools safer, more connected places where bullying and violence are replaced with kindness and respect; and where learning and teaching are awakened to their fullest.

On Wednesday, October 3rd students had the opportunity to learn more about Rachel's Challenge and how they may have a positive impact on others.

Please see the video below for more information.

Nurses Office Notes:

Thank you so much for all the clothes that have been brought in, they are greatly appreciated. We are still in need of Boys Underwear sizes Small and Medium.

With the season changing please remember to dress you child(ren) accordingly an extra change of clothes for them to keep in their backpack would be helpful for those days that change unexpectedly.

Lastly, Please remember to complete a medicine form for your child(ren) if you wish for them to take any over the counter medication while at school. It is up to you to provide these medications. This will just save a call to you or your work on those days when needed.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the nurses office at extension x 1005.
