From the Principal

Our students were excited to have some outdoor recess this week. Today was an especially great day for outside recess and a fire drill as well :)

The excitement is growing for the upcoming holiday break. Next week we have some fun events planned. On Wednesday and Thursday, students will be in groups to take part in Makerspace projects. On Friday, there will be holiday activities going on including classroom parties at the end of the day.


Have a great weekend!
